Why We Love Oman – Oman is quickly gaining steam as an international tourist destination, thanks in part to the fact that it is one of the safest and most beautiful countries to visit in the Middle East. Its capital Muscat offers stunning architecture, excellent cuisine, and infrastructure that’s ready to welcome tourists. Further afield you’ll find gorgeous beaches – some home to nesting turtles – mesmerizing sand dunes, tropical oases, and much more. Get to Oman quick before the word gets out.
