Discover the Exotic Wonders of Oman


Oman LandscapeImagine yourself on a perfectly serene beach with the warm sand between your toes. Imagine a beautiful sunset, like those you would see on a postcard or in a movie. Imagine there is no one else on the beach and there are camels grazing nearby. It’s hard to imagine that such a place exists, but it’s a reality in the Sultanate of Oman.

Oman is an Arab country on the southeast coast of the Arabian Peninsula. Bordering the United Arab Emirates, Oman is home to many ancient attractions, each with its own unique story and history. With mountains, caves, lagoons, beaches, canyons, and valleys, Oman plays host to so many geological features that it’s hard to keep track. Not only does Oman boast beautiful landscapes, but the city attractions are just as interesting, refreshing, and energizing as the magnificent beaches.

If you’re looking for great entertainment, be sure to visit the Royal Opera House in Muscat, Oman’s national capital. Not only are the world-class performances great, but you will also be enthralled in the beautiful architecture of the Royal Opera House. Visiting it at night can be particularly beautiful as the building is lit up with exterior lighting.

While you’re in Muscat, check out the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque. Covering an estimated 416,000 square meters, the mosque has a total capacity of 20,000 worshipers. There are few other buildings around the world that will captivate you and leave you with a sense of awe as the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque does. It is so beautiful and breath-taking that it is difficult to imagine all of the hard work that went into creating it. With hand-crafted mosaic murals around the courtyard and the giant marble pillars inside, be sure to stop by the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Oman’s open-air bazaars are also an entertaining and fun place to go. It is a consumer and merchant paradise, many selling the precious frankincense that was grown in Oman. Oman has been a hub of frankincense trade since ancient times. They pride themselves in having the best frankincense in the world. They use frankincense most often as incense, which many believe promotes calmness, peacefulness, and serenity.

If you’re looking for a truly exotic place that most people haven’t been to (or even heard of), then Oman is the perfect place for you.
