From Exclusive Wadi Fun to Desert Camping, Oman Has Everything for the Travelers
The Empire of Oman is home to a whole range of attractions which, unless you are recognizable with the nation, come as quite a surprise. Whether you’re seeking fun or adrenaline pumping adventure, there’s no shortage of things to do. You can spend some funny moments with turtles or dolphins, or move for retail treatment in the renowned souks. If you love extreme adventure, then opt for camping, off-roading, diving and wadi-bashing in the beautiful wadis of Oman. Let’s have a look at some other things to do in the beautiful country of Oman:
A dhow cruise accustoms you with the varied landscapes of Oman ranging from towering mountains fusing out of the sea and villages settled amid rocky protrusions to sandy beaches & blue water. Get on a conventional dhow cruise to the coastal province of Muscat or the stunning fjords of Muandam.
It doesn’t matter whether you love hiking or swimming with your kids, Wadis in Oman are ideal for any kind of leisure activity.
Wadi Tiwi is an ideal weekend retreat for an individual traveler who wants to discover the central villages of Oman, and even great for a household with young kids prepared to swim in the sparkling water of wadis or strolling around in the serene oasis fragranced with cardamom & mint leaves. Tiwi is also admired for its white sandy beach.
Wadi Shab is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful destinations in Oman. Besides the awe-inspiring entrance, this wadi rewards you with sights of aquamarine pools, terraced plantations and waterfalls. For the adventurous, there’re plenty of possibilities for discreet swimming and a trip to the partially submerged cave.
There’s so much to keep tourists engaged in Wahiba Sands. In fact, it’s the most ideal site to indulge in quad biking, dune-bashing, camel riding, etc. Pack refreshments and snacks and head towards the summit of a sand dune and observe the sky changing colors. Rest at a Bedouin camp overnight and enjoy the calmness and silence – that is rare in towns.
Speckled with so many souks, Oman is a shopper’s sanctuary. For souvenirs and artifacts, Muscat’s Muttrah Souk is the best place to visit. Equally renowned is the Nizwas Souk, which boasts a maze of alleyways selling a variety of stuff – particularly antiques – which make superb souvenirs. Honey, frankincense, miniature dhow, traditional jewelry and craft can be purchased also.
Oman’s highest mountain – Jebel Shams can be tripped anytime during the day to witness stunning sights of the valley. The mountain is also a renowned spot for trekking, biking, hiking and other adventurous sports. Those seeking some adrenaline pumping activities can go for off-road drives, however, if you’re faint hearted then please stay away from such activities.
