Teaching Jobs in Oman
Teaching in Oman is a great way to experience life in the Middle East while earning a competitive, tax-free salary. Teaching positions in Oman are Technical Colleges . Most teaching jobs in Oman have a contract duration of 3 year.
Teaching Salary and Benefits in Oman
Teachers in Oman can expect to make between $2,000 and $3,800 USD per month, tax-free. Most teaching jobs in Oman include furnished accommodations or accommodations at very low cost. As such, teaching in Oman can be a great way to save money. Other teaching benefits in Oman can include return airfare, medical insurance provided by the employer, paid vacation time, and allowances for transportation and tuition for dependents.

Living in Oman
Known for its friendly people, Oman is a country located on the Arabian Sea. Oman is one of the fastest developing countries in the Middle East. With a hot and dry climate, Oman is a great country for those looking to experience an authentic Middle Eastern way of living. Oman is made up of a vast desert region and mountains, and it is home to many historical forts, which are its best known landmarks. Traveling in Oman can include desert camping, a trip to the beach, and shopping at traditional markets.

Living in the Capital of Oman, Muscat
As the Capital of Oman, Muscat is the largest city in the country, as well as the seat of government. Since the ascension of the current Sultan, Qaboos bin Said in 1970, Oman has seen rapid infrastructure development. Muscat is home to many notable landmarks, including the famous Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, the Oman National Museum, and a brand new opera house (opened Late 2011). For those interested in shopping, the largest mall in Oman is situated in Muscat—the Muscat Grand Mall—with many smaller other malls scattered throughout the city.

Al-Ansab Wetland
This wetland, the eagle capital of the world, is the place to go birdwatching with more than 280 different species on view. To see flamingos, spoonbills and flocks of wading birds head to Barr Al-Hickman, one of Oman’s 16 national nature reserves (

Don’t miss the lively fish market here. Watch locals standing around the auction floor bid for fish of all colours, shapes and sizes, while fishermen young and old land the night’s catches on the huge beach outside, running up the sand with filled crates and fish threaded on lines.

Bimmah Sinkhole
This enormous sinkhole is mesmerising, its wonderful geological shape and still green-blue waters (a result of salt and fresh water mixing together) creating a picture of beauty. It’s worth the long climb down (and back up again) to dip your toes in the water and to get a closer view of the 40m-wide (130ft) basin.

Empty Quarter
The largest desert in the Arabian Peninsula, north of Salalah, is the place to enjoy an exhilarating 4-wheel drive off-road experience, exploring territory that had not been crossed until just 80 years ago.

Grand Mosque, Muscat
Be wowed by gold, crystals, Italian white marble, a 10-tonne crystal chandelier lit by 1,122 bulbs and a 21-tonne carpet woven in one piece by 600 Iranian women. The women’s room is much smaller than the men’s. It took six years to build the mosque, whose huge gold dome and tall minarets dominate the skyline.

Ras Al Jinz
Ras Al Jinz, near Sur, is the only place to spot protected turtles. More than 50,000 females make their way slowly up the beach every night to lay their eggs, before slipping back to the sea before dawn. July to October is the peak time for turtle watching.

Rustaq Fort
The sheer beauty of this mighty fort comes into view as you approach. It has been beautifully restored and is a maze of corridors, stairways, prettily-carved archways and fascinating rooms including the sultan’s guest room, winter room, prison and women’s and girls’ rooms adorned with pretty bracelets, teapots and delightfully painted ceramics.

Wadi Sahtan

Explore the beautiful ravine of Wadi Sahtan in the Rustaq region on a 4-wheel drive guided jeep tour. Pass by small ancient villages, beautiful, still green pools, 14 million date palms, and craggy cliffs, stopping off for a picnic lunch beneath the towering peaks. Best of all, enjoy the thrill of splashing at speed through small rivers along the way.

Al Mughsayl blowholes

These blowholes provide an amazing natural water display. During the monsoon, when sea levels rise and currents become more active, water surges though rock cavities, resulting in a superb display of gushing water.

Al-Hoota Cave
You will encounter some of the country’s limestone wonders at this cave, reached by Oman’s only train ( It extends for 5km (3 miles) underground and the cave lake contains several species of blind fish.
Bahla Fort

This is one of the most impressive fortified settlements of its kind in the world and one of Oman’s many World Heritage sites. Like several of its listed sites, it is not yet open to visitors. Before you leave, buy a souvenir pot from local Bahla potters but don’t rub it – Bahla is famous for genies!
Beach picnic
Spend a day the Omani way with a picnic and the company of friends on the beautiful beaches of Yitti, Seifa or Quiryat or in the lush oleander-flowering wadis of Dayqah, Shab and Tiwi.
Forts and castles
Scale the battlements of one of Oman’s many forts and castles in the old capital cities of Nakhal or Rustaq, and examine why honey wasn’t always sweet for unwanted guests at the imposing Al-Hazm, Nizwa or Jibreen Forts.
Geological attractions
Get up close to Oman’s world-famous geological attractions and go rock climbing in the wadis (dry river beds) of the Al Haja Mountains. Less ambitious visitors may prefer to enjoy the mountains by hiking up to jabal Al Akhdar, Oman’s Green Mountain, where a variety of soft fruits and prize pomegranates are grown.

Haggle at Muttrah Souk
This fairly small labyrinthine souk in Muscat is the place to haggle for gold, silver and other trinkets you thought you could never afford. Pick up some frankincense at a bargain price and delightful spices too. The good news is that the vendors are not too persistent here.

Jabal Shams
Ascend Jabal Shams (Mountain of the Sun) either on foot or by 4-wheel drive jeep and peer into the shadows of Wadi Ghul, the Grand Canyon of Arabia, pausing to buy a goat-haired carpet from the mountain’s itinerant weavers.

Mud baths
Join the locals in a gnat-infested mud bath at beautiful Wadi Darbat in the heart of Oman’s southern, subtropical region of Dhofar. During the autumn, water from the mountains forms magnificent waterfalls which cascade from a height of 100m (330ft).
To get a true feel for Oman’s whitewashed capital, follow the Muttrah Corniche from the lively fish market, past the balconied buildings of the Muttrah Souk and old Muscat to the Sultan’s Palace, which shelters beneath the 16th-century Portuguese forts of Al Jalali and Al Mirani.


Renowned for its early-morning livestock market, winding alleyways and silver handicrafts, Nizwa was the country’s capital during the sixth and seventh centuries. Buy copper and handicrafts from artisans at the souk.

Oryx sanctuary
The Oryx Natural Living Sanctuary is situated in Jallluni, in the central region. Go in search of the Arabian oryx in the dawn mists at and enjoy a visit to Huqf Escarpment led by a member of the local Al-Harasi tribe.
Ride a camel
Ride a camel across Sharqiya Sands in the Deserted Quarter. As dusk falls, return to your campsite for a barbecue of camel and goat kebabs – and a night under the most amazing starry sky.

Traditional dhow
Drift slowly in a dhow off Khasab, where these traditional boats have been used by fishing families for generations. If you are lucky, you may be accompanied by dolphins. The area in the Musandam Peninsula is often described as the Norway of Arabia because of its beautiful khors (fjords).
Enjoy a variety of water sports, including diving (, windsurfing, sailing or deep-sea fishing from one of the many outlets in Muscat and Salalah, or take a trip on the wild side and organise your own fun in the sun off the desert island of Masirah.

Nightlife in Oman
You’ll find the main nightclubs and bars in Muscat and Salalah, although most of the nightlife centres in the hotels. A new convention centre with an 8,000-seat auditorium is being built, which will double as an entertainment and sports venue. It will include new hotels and shopping facilities and is due to open in 2014.
As part of its long-term plan, the country is investing in more entertainment venues such as the Oman Royal Opera House which opened in 2011. It will showcase Oman’s cultural heritage, as well as bringing international music to the local audience and visitors. Famous names to grace the venue will include Placido Domingo, Andrea Bocelli, soprano Renée Fleming, cellist Yo Yo Ma and the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the American Ballet Theatre and trumpeter Wynton Marsalis with New York City’s

Jazz at uincoln Centre Orchestra.
The Royal Opera House shares the grounds with a small theatre, restaurants, luxury shops and extensive gardens.
There are a number of modern cinemas in Muscat, such as the Al-Shatti Multiplex, Ruwi and Star, showing a variety of international films.
There is very little in the way of nightlife in other Omani towns with the exception of Salalah which comes alive during the khareef (rainy season in July and August) with festival activities.

Living in Saudi Arabia & Teaching English

Friendly and welcoming, Saudi Arabia draws a large number of expatriates from around the world. The culture is relatively relaxed, and Saudi Arabia enjoy a diverse environment and a comfortable standard of living. You will have great advantage of visiting in the Persian Gulf, Bahrain is a comparative “oasis of liberalism” among the conservative Muslim countries of the region. It’s popular with travelers for its authentic “Arabness” but without the strict application of Islamic law upon its non-Muslim minority. Alcohol is readily available, attracting foreign residents of nearby Middle Eastern states. Bahrain is filled with extravagant hotels, ornate shopping plazas, and a large number of luxury tourist resorts. Plentiful oil resources throughout Bahrain have fueled a construction boom in recent years that shows no sign of slowing down.

Cost of living in Saudi Arabia
Living expenses vary by the individual, although most teachers are able to save a good portion of their monthly salary. Employment packages for teachers usually include generous benefits, which often extend to dependants as well.
Furnished accommodation is routinely provided.

Things for teachers to do in Saudi Arabia
Saudi Arabia a popular nighttime destination for visitors from its neighboring countries. Dining options include anything from Western fast food, to street stalls, to high-end restaurants. During the day, shopping is an extremely popular pastime. There are a number of shopping malls as well as markets.

Saudi Arabia Travel
Many travelers find Saudi Arabia an ideal mix of traditional Arab culture and Western-friendly attitudes. Residents of Saudi Arabia’s neighboring countries, such as Bahrain, often come to Saudi Arabia to relax socially.

1) Hike w/ the Hash
Most major cities around the world have Hash House Harriers (HHH), a group of hikers that get together and explore the local terrain. What makes Hashing in Saudi so special, is the differing landscapes of the desert. With the permission of authorities, it gives foreigners-only the opportunity to mingle freely, sans abaya (black cloak women wear), and build valuable contacts to make life in Riyadh much easier. The best part is stumbling across unique finds, like desert diamonds, hieroglyphics, or desert roses. To seal the memory, end your hike next to a campfire, feet in sand, watching the sunset.

2) Hamam at Direm Beauty Center
Basically, during Hamam, an old lady gives you the best bath of your life! You can find everyone from soon-to-be Saudi brides to curious expats getting this treatment done. It can be compared to the body scrubs of Turkey or the jjimjilbangs of South Korea. The entire treatment is done in a wet sauna, where the woman slathers you with mixtures of soap, oil, and mud. After she removes a layer of your DNA, you may find that you are a shade and a pound lighter. It’s an interesting experience that has you walking away with skin so soft and clean, as if you were just born yesterday.

3) Eat at Najd Village
If you want to experience what ancient Saudi Arabia was like, you must visit this restaurant! When you first walk in, the stone walls encase you like an old fortress. Simple rarities here, like the rich color patterns found in the painted doors, gold Arabic antiques, and plush green grass, are a joy to see. Every group is given a private eating room with wrap-around floor seating. The meal is started off with the traditional Saudi dates and tea. And then you are served huge dishes that meant to be shared. Here’s one of your few chances to try camel!.. Don’t forget your camera. This restaurant is a unique experience that you may want to capture.

5) Shop and Eat at Al Faisaliya Tower
If you’re looking for a fancy night out on the town, you must pay a visit to The Globe restaurant at the top of Al Faisaliya Tower. Here you can taste a variety of European meals, High Tea, and deserts, at a table that overlooks all of Riyadh. If this doesn’t fit your tastes, step over to Il Terrazo restaurant, an all-you-can eat Brazilian barbeque. This open-air, but misted, restaurant plays music (which is absent in most public places) and is a mixed gender zone. Once the sun sets, step out onto the observation deck for a 360 degree view of the city, with the desert in the background. Then walk off the food, in the expansive mall below.

Life in Saudi Arabia: Society
Despite aspiring to be a modern country in many respects, Saudi Arabia still has one of the most traditional societies in the world. Life in Saudi Arabia is governed by firm religious beliefs, rules and traditions, and expats living in Saudi Arabia have to get used to that as there is no way around it.
The traditions and attitudes of Saudi Arabia have been shaped by Islam as well as Bedouin culture. Thus, expats living in Saudi Arabia will discover that family bonds are still much stronger than in many other cultures, to an extent that they permeate all aspects of life in Saudi Arabia, even in the business world.

Living in Saudi Arabia: Culture
Cultural life in Saudi Arabia has to be in agreement with strict interpretations of the Quran. In practice, this means that the visual arts, for example, are limited to geometric, floral or abstract designs, as representations of human beings are forbidden. Although there are some cinemas in larger cities, relinquishing the joys of theater comes with the territory of life in Saudi Arabia for expats.
Music and dance form an important part of cultural life in Saudi Arabia, as does Bedouin poetry. Literature in Saudi Arabia in general is, however, kept in check by strict censorship rules. If a life in Saudi Arabia is planned for expats, they should be aware that, just as there is no freedom of religion, there is no real freedom of expression, either.
