By Sheikh Al Zubairi Subscribe to RSS | January 24th 2012 | Views:

Oman is another one of the oil rich countries in the Middle Eastern region, but in recent years Oman is also getting famous as a tourists destination. A long coast line of seventeen thousand kilometer makes it a perfect place for water sports and attractive sceneries of nature along a large number of historical monuments makes it an amazing tourist destination. This has been one of the reasons why tourism industry in Oman has grown considerably well and the number of tourists and visitors coming to Oman is continuously increasing. Muscat the capital city of Oman has been rated as the second best city to visit in the world by Lonely Planet. There are a number of activities people love to do on their tour to Oman, these activities include water sports on the warm sand beaches like scuba diving, desert safari, camel riding in the desert of golden sand dunes, rolling green hills, mountain climbing and caving in Oman, and visiting historical monuments like castles and forts in Oman. In terms of historical venues, Oman is known to have a number of ancient forts, castles, and towers that attract most people related to different fields of history.

Talking of history the National Museum in Muscat is another one of the tourist attraction that itself have had a long history being established in 1978 the museum holds a large number of gold and silver ornaments, copper crafts, and ship models and a number of other historical items. Apart from National Museum there are a few other museums as well in Muscat, like the Children Museums in Muscat which is an exciting place for children all age as they can take pleasure in scientific experiments and inventive ideas of the scientific world displayed there. The Natural History Museum is another place to be at in Muscat as it displays the different species found in Oman the skeleton of sperm whale, and other insects, birds, mammals, and fish. The Oil and Gas Exhibition Center & Planetarium is another of the places to visit in Oman which shows the history of oil exploration and extraction in Oman.

The congested sea route at the Strait of Hormuz is another one of the great attractions for the tourists and visitors coming to Oman for holidays and vacations. It is not just an important narrow strategic trade route between the Gulf of Oman and the Persian Gulf but is also a major source of attraction for tourists. Many of the tour planning companies in Oman include the Strait of Hormuz in their tour plan on demand of most of the tourists and visitors coming to Oman. In this way many people coming to Oman on vacations enjoy and explore some of the most vital water ways and trade routes that benefit us in our daily lives. It is due to these factors that the tourism industry in Oman is growing so quickly and people from many different parts of the world like to travel to Oman for holidays and vacations making Oman another one of the favorite tourist’s destination in the Middle eastern region.
