Oman is a well-kept secret of the Middle Eastern region. Its four regions: Northern Oman, Central Coastal Oman, Zufar, and the Empty Quarter offer a little something for every kind of traveler.
Northern Oman is home to the capitol city of Muscat. The capitol is full of stunning mosques and buildings styled in unique Islamic architecture. The Muttrah quarter is a shopper’s paradise, with a thriving fish market, silver shops, and perfumeries.
In Central Coastal Oman you’ll find towering sand dunes and a coast dotted with ancient forts and beautiful views of the Arabian Sea.
Zufar, or Dhofar, is located on the southern-most point of Oman. The most visited site is the Museum of the Frankincense Land, which is an almost complete set of ruins that are lit by the atmosphere at night.
The Empty Quarter is, as you might expect, quite empty. This huge desert wilderness creates an undefined boarder with Saudi Arabia.
Oman is, at the very least, a geographically diverse and unique travel destination.
