Top 10 Must-See Attractions in Oman - Explore Oman

Oman is slowly gaining popularity as one of the most interesting locations to visit and here are the 10 must-visit locations in the country.

1

Muscat

It does not come as a surprise that Muscat is on the top of this list. The capital city of Oman is a stunning location which combines history, development and the modern-day. Walk along the streets of Muscat, enjoying the aromas of the fresh food and picking out souvenirs and gifts from craft sellers.

2

Nizwa

The stunning fort is undoubtedly the most popular attraction in Nizwa even though it served as the capital of Oman in the sixth and seventh centuries. Alila Jabal Akhdar located not too far from Nizwa allowing the residents to make a day trip to the location.

3

Wahiba Sands

For those who love getting an adrenaline rush, the Wahiba Sands four-wheel drive sand dunes excursion would be a delightful experience. Even though this seems an exotic location for those who are away from Oman this location is home to the Bedu People and you get to witness their life in Oman.

Musandam Fjords

Musandam Fjords is not only historically but also culturally important as it used to be home to the coastal communities as well as mountain villages.

5

Ras Al Jinz

A location that is ideal for children and adults alike and for anyone who loves animals. The Indian Ocean Sea Turtles are taken care of at the sanctuary in Ras Al Jinz which is located at the easternmost tip of Oman

Jebel Ahkar

If hiking does not seem inviting in the desert, it sure is inviting in Jebel Ahkar as this is the highest point in the country and the most agriculturally prosperous terrain as well. You might imagine a lush green mountain top but the Jebel Ahkar is a limestone.

7

Salalah

Salalah is mainly important due to the fact that it is the ancestral home of the Sultan Qaboos. Salalah is a wonderful location to visit in order to experience history and culture. Most of the Oman luxury hotels are located in Muscat or in Salalah as these are the most popular cities in Oman.

Bahla

Bahla not only boasts of a stunning historic fort but also been one of the most popular locations when it comes to trading. Back in the days, Bahla seems to have been a common location for traders to come and stop by. While you are exploring the fort you can also look for some souvenirs as Bahla is well-known for the stunning handmade souvenirs.

Masirah Island

Masirah Island is located off the coast of Oman and is a secluded place ideal for those who love to enjoy nature in peace and tranquillity. You are able to explore many locations which are uninhabited but were used many years ago.

Misft al Abryeen

Even though the more popular and larger cities in Oman seem very modern and developed the cities in the outskirts are able to capture the unique historical look. The stunning architecture and the trees surrounding the area is a breath of fresh air when you go sightseeing.a
