Oryx presents its insider’s tips for places to visit in February.
Discover Oman’s rich heritage, take in Phnom Penh’s sights during its dry season, and relax in Punta Cana’s tropical paradise.



In February, temperatures in Oman average a comfortable 22–24°C, with around 11 hours of sunshine a day and little or no rain. Visitors to Muscat can experience the varied landscape, from beautiful beaches and breathtaking mountains, to the golden dunes of Bawshar Sands. With an ancient cultural heritage and a contemporary spirit, old markets, small shops, and winding roads stand side by side with modern shops, markets, and architecture. In Salalah, the smell of frankincense wafts through the city. Visit the ancient port of Al-Baleed, where frankincense was traded – now a UNESCO World Heritage site with a museum tracing its history.

Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Falling in the dry season, February is one of the cooler months in Phnom Penh, averaging around 27°C, and the peak crowds are starting to dwindle. Must-see attractions include the National Museum and the Royal Palace – the walls of which enclose the Silver Pagoda, renowned for its 5,000 silver floor tiles.

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Although Punta Cana is a year-round destination, the best time to visit is between mid-November and late April, after the hurricane and tropical storm season. As well as enjoying the beautiful beaches, water sports, and golf, exploring the flora and fauna of Saona Island is a must when you visit.
