We spent nine days in Oman, driving ourselves around and wild camping most nights. We had time for several great hikes, swimming in both wadis and the sea, exploring secluded beaches as well as the mountains, and even visiting forts, souks and mosques.
Wild camping is legal in Oman, and the nature is amazing, but you’ll still need to be prepared to really take advantage of it. Here’s a detailed guide to how to find six of the best camping spots in the country.
My wordy guide with all you need to know when preparing for a camping trip in Oman, including what driving is like, where to camp, what equipment you’ll need, how to stay clean and other useful advice.
Whenever we’re not carrying camping gear, we travel carry-on only. When you think about it, even without being one of those people that everyone hates that take a way too large piece of hand-luggage, you can carry A LOT on board a plane.
Our last stop in Transylvania was Brasov, from where we went to see Dracula’s castle in Bran, did a hike in the forest with more bears than people, and went on one of the best free walking tours we’ve done to date.
Everything you do in Sighisoara requires climbing hills or staircases, except simply chilling on the square in the old town with a coffee and a sweet. We did a little bit of both, and would absolutely recommend a visit.
Sibiu was our first stop in Romania outside of Bucharest, and we loved the historical center with all of its churches and old buildings with eyes on the roof. We visited a really cool open air museum showing how people lived a long time ago.
