Oman is a country well known as much for its rich history, natural wealth, and unique culture, as it is for its diverse geography and varied climatic conditions. This is further complemented by numerous archaeological and historical sites, some of which date back to the third millennium B.C., and regular festivals that celebrate the country’s culture and heritage. A popular sight at such events are compelling performance arts such as Al Razha Dance, Liwa, and A's, each of which provides tourists with the best opportunity to experience Oman’s traditions up close.
For the more adventurous, Oman offers an extraordinary variety of experiences and activities. These range from mountaineering on the Al Hajar Mountain ranges and tackling one of the many climbs and treks in and around Jabal Al Akhdar and Jabal Shams, sand skiing in one of Oman’s deserts, to windsurfing, snorkeling, and scuba diving off Oman’s spectacular coastline.
Spelunking (exploring caves) is also growing in popularity in Oman, especially so with a large number of unique cave systems in the country; one of which is the Majlis Al Jinn which is amongst the largest in the world. While cycling enthusiasts can enjoy Oman’s seemingly limitless number of tracks and trails, as one of the best countries in the region for mountain biking.
Equally interesting is the wildlife of Oman, with more than 500 species of birds that can be found on throughout the country, and the sea turtles nesting along the Omani coastline from Ras al Hadd to Ras Al Ruwais, to name a few. There are also 20 different species of dolphins and whales from Salalah to Khasab.
Trading activities create an atmosphere that is uniquely Omani, where the age-old custom of buying and selling quickly turns into social occasions where friends exchange news over a cup of Omani coffee. This is the quintessentially Omani atmosphere experienced in the traditional souqs.
