Oman has a wealth of traditions, art and heritage. All it's natural and inherited sites are well preserved in all its simplicity and harshness, and reflect the extent of its adaptation to the surrounding environment, demonstrating how to use natural resources to fulfill basic needs.
The most popular mode of transport in Oman is the public bus service ‘Baiza’ that runs to almost all parts of the cities. There also are the white and orange-strapped cabs. One of the more ambitious projects by Oman Transport department are the high end luxurious ferry boats that travel between Muscat, Khasab, Lima and Shinas.

Oman is a country with a rich and diverse heritage. With history of human settlements dating back to some 5,000 years, you can never miss a historical sight as you roam around the country. Oman proudly presents and protects its cultural reminiscences. As a result the streets are full of its rich cultural collectibles for you to witness as well as take away with you. Oman is the ultimate destination for cultural tourism. This is where you will find hundreds of castles, forts and museums dating back to various historic epochs.
Al Alam Palace (“Flag Palace”), the most important of the six royal residences of the ruling monarch, Sultan Qaboos. Built in 1972, the palace is Oman’s most flamboyant example of contemporary Islamic design, with two long wings centred on a colourful, cube-like central building, its flat, overhanging roof supported by extravagantly flared blue and gold columns.
The Sultan Qaboos Mosque highlights its role as a scientific and intellectual source of knowledge across the Islamic world. In addition to its distinctive architectural features and the innovative approach to the construction of the mosque itself, its corridors display a rich array of the art of Islam.
Standing almost on the beach, Bukha Castle was a look out over the sea watching for ships and protected the town and port of Bukha and the route to the interior – especially as the port served the ancient capital of Ar Rustaq. The importance of Bukha was at its peak in the middle of the 18th century.The Ministry of Tourism is currently developing Bukha Castle as a visitor destination with information and exhibits about local traditions.
Royal Opera House Muscat is the leading arts and culture organization in the Sultanate of Oman. Located in Muscat, Oman, the vision of the Opera House is to serve as a centre of excellence in global cultural engagement. The multidisciplinary work of Royal Opera House Muscat showcases rich and diverse artistic creations from Oman, the region, and the world.
Oman is one of the most popular diving destinations in the region. It has an exceptionally diverse marine life and a number of marine cliffs, small islands, bays and caves, as well as a diverse marine life and coral reefs. There are a variety of other adventurous activities to tourists, from desert activities to water sports and the other natural activities: Cruises, Mountain Climbing, Trekking, Desert Activities, Camping, Caving, Golf, Kitesurfing/Kiteboarding, Turtle Watching, Dolphin watching, and Camel/Horse Riding.
Oman is a unique offering in this modern world and tourists get to experience a rich and traditional culture in a pristine environment. Oman has various venues; almost each hotel is different in its architecture, or the idea that it was built on, so it’s a different experience each time in each hotel.
What distinguishes Oman in general, and Muscat in particular, is the easy access to major tourist attractions and the abundance of variety to meet all interests.
The country’s culinary traditions offer an interesting blend of Arabian and Indian influences. In the major tourist cities and towns, there are restaurants serving Arabic, Lebanese, Indian, European, and many other international cuisines.
Omani cuisine is milder and less spicy than that of its neighbors. The seafood is naturally a huge part of the cuisine. One of the more traditional dishes is Mashuai, which is kingfisher cooked on a spit eaten with lemon rice. Traditional sweets are quite famous, not only in the country but in the entire region.
We know Oman like only a few and have worked in some of the most challenging projects. We are still on the vanguard when it comes to offering the destination in a unique way, to make it the experience of a lifetime.
