What to wear in Oman: A complete Oman Packing List - 5 items you cannot go without!

It is not easy to pack for a holiday. Most of the time, you tend to leave something behind. If you are pack-ing for Oman, please ensure your packing list includes lightweight, breezy apparel, as the weather can get extremely warm and humid. Here is how you must pack for Oman.


Weather-related packing

Let's start with what you will need to escape Middle East's hot and humid weather. Summers can be op-pressive, reaching well above 35°C. This simply means that you will need to bring apparel that can with-stand the elements. A wide-brimmed hat will be needed to safeguard you from the hot sun. Sunglasses are a must-have item that should not be overlooked. Choose a sunscreen with a high SPF to protect yourself from sunburns. You may need to bring more clothing than usual because you will most certainly sweat through them. Always take a water bottle with you when you leave your accommodation. There are many outdoor activities in Oman you can try too. Some of these activities are arranged by the hotel itself. Check out Oman Hotels that offer such excursions!


Packing according to local customs

Despite the fact that Oman is a Middle Eastern country with stringent traditions and clothing standards, this is not the case here. It is laid-back and uncomplicated. However, if you are touring any cultural and reli-gious sites, you may be required to dress modestly and cover up; this signifies that one's legs and shoul-ders shouldn't be visible. As a result, do not really overpack with shorts or tank tops, and especially do not wear them to sacred sites like the Oman Grand Mosque. Make it a habit to research the area's local cus-toms before going touring.


Getting ready for a sightseeing trip

There is going to be a lot of walking and trekking when sightseeing and travelling around Oman. As a re-sult, you should bring a pair of comfy trainers with you. This country is recognised for its rugged terrains and roads, as well as its breathtaking natural landscape. And if you are not driving a four-wheel-drive vehi-cle, you will most likely be walking to see these sights. As a result, a pair of strong hiking boots will be useful. And you will be using them more frequently than you would have expected. Make sure your shoes match the clothes you have packed.



If you forget something from the list above, you can easily replace it by going to the store. However, you will be in hot water if you leave any of your documents behind. As a result, before leaving for the airport, make sure to double-check all of your documentation. If you plan to rent a car, don't leave your driver's li-cense. You will not be allowed to rent a car unless you have proof of a valid driver's license.



It is important to bring your prescriptions if you're under any medications. Make sure to carry a first aid box and insect repellant sprays!
