Long as tourists respect the culture and traditions of the Omani people, visitors are warmly welcomed and helped in Oman. A worthy example of excellent schools, hospitals and good governance, Oman has progressed rapidly since the 1970s. Situated on the eastern end of the Arabian Peninsula, Oman maintains the Musandam peninsula and Madha, a couple of exclaves separated from it by the United Arab Emirates. Expected to be one of the flourishing industries in Oman, tourism has considerably grown here within the last decade.
Featuring plenty of amazing beaches and touristic activities including diving, kite-surfing, turtle, dolphin, whale and bird watching, trekking, rock-climbing and caving, along with some great shopping; Oman also provides very interesting horse and camel racing events. Home to almost all international hotel chains seeing the vast tourism potential, Omani cuisine generally uses a variety of spices like cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, black-pepper, onion, ginger and garlic to create a distinctly traditional tasty blend widely appreciated by the visitors.
