Welcome to the Sultanate of Oman, a land of awe-inspiring natural beauty woven into a tapestry of history, stories, and adventures.Read below
Wadi Shab is one of the most popular activities in Oman since it combines the best of both worlds. You get to go hiking and then swim in crystal-clear, warm freshwater pools. There are three sets of pools, with the final set being the deepest and ending with a cave to swim to. Although the swimming area in Wadi Shab is smaller than it appears, there is still much to see and do. You can spend nearly 5 hours at Wadi Shab, and the views are so breathtaking that it had to be at the top of our list of things to do in Oman!
Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque is one of the most beautiful religious structures we've ever seen and one of Oman's must-see attractions. From Saturday through Thursday, from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque is open to the public. Non-Muslim visitors are not permitted to enter the prayer area of many mosques, which is one of the reasons Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque should be at the top of your list of things to do in Oman. The mosque is located in the center of Muscat and is easily accessible.
A stretch of virgin sand dunes stretches as far as the eye can reach in Oman. Because they are so easily accessible and unforgettable, the Wahiba Sands [also known formally as the Sharqiya Sands] is one of the best things to do in Oman. If you're visiting Oman, we recommend spending at least one night camping in the Wahiba Sands Desert. Don't worry if you despise regular camping as much as we do! In the Wahiba Sands, there are lots of glamping sites, so those of you who prefer a real toilet, shower, and bed may also enjoy one of Oman's best locations to visit!
The Bimmah Sinkhole, which is only 90 minutes from Muscat, was certainly one of your favorite things to do in Oman. What is the reason for this? It is one of the prettiest and most enchanting locations you've ever seen since it was easily accessible from Muscat and the main road, didn't require hiking and was one of the nicest and most enchanting locations we've ever seen. You'll also receive a complimentary spa treatment! What do we mean by this? When you remove your feet from the water, the fish at Bimmah Sinkhole will nibble off the dead skin on your feet [or anywhere else on your body if you allow them], leaving them absolutely smooth and soft.
Mutrah Souq is one of the Middle East's oldest and largest souqs, and it should be at the top of your list of things to do in Oman. The Souq was extremely crowded, hot, and overpowering, so if you want to visit Mutrah Souq, go when you aren't jet-lagged for the best experience. Mutrah Souq is one of the greatest places to go shopping in Oman since you can shop with the locals. You may easily visit the souq after dinner because it is open until extremely late.
Wadi Bani Khalid is divided into two halves. The first section is a large lake/lagoon with more fish to eat your dead skin, which is highly crowded and popular on weekends. The second section features a beautiful gorge of white granite with crystal-clear blue pools of water. The water is warm, and the scenery is breathtaking. This location is much less busy than the lake portion.
Wadi Bani Khalid, one of the most well-known Wadis in Oman, is well-known for its sizable pools of emerald green water surrounded by tall palm trees. Wadi Bani Khalid is renowned for having a year-round continuous flow of water, unlike other wadis in Oman that get dry in the summer. It is frequently referred to as the "desert paradise" because of the Hajar Mountains' stony cliffs and canyons, which are breathtakingly picturesque. This popular hiking area and well-known picnic location is only 2.5 kilometres from Muscat.
Wadi Bani Khalid has been improved with a bridge, dining places, and a restaurant, making it one of the most easily accessible Wadis in the vicinity. Swimming is a great activity in the Wadi's pools.
The Wadi Bani Khalid is divided into two parts. While the southern portion (also known as Wadi Hayer) includes rocky terrain that is ideal for trekking and bouldering, the northern portion is a leisure area with palm trees, immaculate pools, and rock faces for picnics and swimming. It even contains Miqil Cave, a cave system in the region that leads to a tiny waterfall.
