5 Reasons you should consider visiting Oman – A must visit

The Middle East is home to several mesmerizing countries and cities, but Oman definitely stands out! If you're looking to experience genuine Arabic hospitality and atmosphere – Oman is the place to go.


Diverse Sceneries

Located on the Southeast coast of the Arabian Peninsula, Oman is a world away from its glitzy neighbours. Boasting a beautifully diverse range of scenery to enjoy, Oman will not disappoint. It doesn't matter whether you're looking to dive, sand-board, swim, hike or simply just explore – Oman has no shortage of views! Due to the diverse landscape the country offers, it suits all travellers seeking different environments to experience. Amazing dive sites and untouched corals take your experience a notch higher! Nizwa offers great hiking opportunities among many other spots!


Omani History

From the very moment you step into Oman, you're sure to feel the history. You can make time to visit Bait al Zubair Museum or the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque for a glimpse into the country's grand past. This is also a great way for foreigners to learn about Islam and the role it played in Oman. The residents of Oman are known to be very friendly, eager to share information and their way of life, including history and culture. Since 1970, Sultan Qaboos bin Said al Said has served as the absolute monarchy of the country and is beloved among the Omanis.


Gorgeous hotels and properties

Muscat and other cities in Oman have developed into modern and diverse cities, since the 1970s. Moving around the city of Muscat is a breeze due to the efficient infrastructure! There are numerous Oman luxury resorts for you to stay in during your time there, such as properties by Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas. You can also opt for furnished apartments or private housing if you're staying for a longer time! Some of the hotel properties are located in astonishingly beautiful landscapes, like the mountains and beside the beach so you're unlikely to be at a loss for a fabulous place to splash out on!


Calmer than its neighbours

If you've visited the other countries in the Middle East, you'll notice that Oman is a much calmer and quieter country in comparison to its bustling neighbours. If you're in search of a more relaxed setting where you enjoy being away from crowds, large buildings and rushing vehicles – Oman is ideal because of its extremely laidback nature. You can head to the hills if you want to escape the city!


The cultural capital

Muscat is known as the cultural capital of the Arabian Peninsula, and rightly so because the Omani people are proud of their heritage and have been receptive to the languages and cultures that have been passed through their port over several years. When you stroll through the Muttrah Corniche, you're likely to hear all sorts of foreign languages being spoken! During your time in Oman, make sure to catch an opera or ballet at the gorgeous Royal Opera Hall, the National Museum and the domed Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque.
