Mumbai, 14th November 2011: Cox and Kings Ltd, the longest established travel company in the world since 1758 offers its customers, tailor-made holidays to spectacular Oman.

Commenting on the offer Mr. Karan Anand, Head-Relationships & Supplier Management, Cox & Kings Ltd, said “Oman is an unexplored destination, and we see a lot of potential in Oman as a luxury destination for Indians to indulge in. Apart from its fabulous beaches and dazzling array of fjords, Oman is a short haul destination which shares cultural affinity with India. The Sultanate enjoys an unspoiled culture and traditional lifestyle in almost every aspect and definitely makes it an apt destination for travellers in search of natural beauty”.
Cox & Kings' FLEXIHOL offers two tours to Oman: Oman Highlights is a 3 N / 4 D package visiting the capital city of Oman, Muscat with prices starting from Rs. 35,999 per person; the tour includes return airfare, airport taxes, accommodation, daily breakfast, airport transfers, half day city tour and travel insurance.
Contrasts of Oman is a 5 N / 6 D package visiting Muscat and the southern region of Oman, Salalah. The price starts from Rs. 54,999 and the tour includes return airfare, airport taxes, accommodation, daily breakfast, airport transfers, travel insurance and Oman Visa fees.
Visit Muscat, the hub of all international flights is the capital city of Oman. Described as "Arabia's jewel”, this city is a blend of the old and the new. The roads are lined with well-manicured green lawns and trees. During winter this is interspersed with a profusion of multi-coloured flowers.
The city has steadfastly retained its old-world character. Old Muscat has a quaint charm about it with many forts, castles, mosques and towers doting the landscape. Of particular note are Jalali and Mirani forts flanking Al Alam Palace. The Corniche, with its promenade and souqs (markets) is one of the highlights of the city. The old souq of Muttrah is an ideal spot for tourists to buy keepsakes and treasures. Greater Muscat boasts high-rise business properties (but not too high), world-class highways, upscale suburbs rooted in traditional Islamic architecture, elegant mosques, large green parks, archaeological sites, museums and world-class hotels. Nestled in the southern region of Oman, Salalah has the most unspoiled beaches that are ideal for scuba diving, canoeing, sailing, jet skiing and diving. But during the summer Salalah is easily Oman's coolest destination to visit during the Khareef with its crisp unpolluted air, cool misty clime, high rolling seas and leafy ambiance. Less than half an hour's drive from Salalah is Ain Razat, a picnic spot with springs, hills, gardens and streams. To the west of Salalah are many stretches of beautiful beaches. One of the most popular of these is Mughsayl where you can find unusual blow holes in the rocky shelf close to the shore. These holes display dramatic bursts of water and foam sometimes reaching 50 feet in the air.
