From the rugged majestic mountains to the vast deserts or sandy beaches, Oman lures a variety of tourists to its fold. One can also engage in numerous adventure activities such as snorkelling, kite-surfing to kayaking and dune bashing.

A unique component of the country are its wadis – Wadi Bani Khalid, Wadi Shab – and natural springs like Al Kasfa hot spring and Al Thuwarah spring. Jebel Akhdar and Jebel Shams are some of the mountain ranges that are worth a visit. The picturesque Salalah during the khareef season is one of sultanate’s best tourist places.

Tanja Walter, project manager, Development Cooperation with the Middle East and North Africa from Germany said, “The sultanate has several tourism attractions to offer – right from the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque and Al Alam Palace to the famous traditional markets like the Muttrah Souq. Close to the capital city – Muscat, several areas are characterised by archaeological sites and architectural symbols representing Omani culture such as the Nizwa Fort, Jibreen Castle, and many other historical places that highlight the heritage of Omanis.”
