Welcome to

Oman

Effortless natural beauty, vibrant culture and extremely warm and cordial locals- all these make Oman the most sought destination. Oman is subtle but it swanks its rich culture and heritage with pride. The superfluous heritage protection strategies helped Oman save and beautifully preserve its Bedouin culture. Oman has a deep azure coastline with dusky deserts. And this makes Oman a perfect destination for outdoor activities and unique attractions. The authentic Arabian food prepared with its secret and untouched recipes awaits to give you a moment of a lifetime. Vegetarians don’t worry, Oman has a lot to offer. You are always expected to be dressed modestly while in Oman.

Local culture & heritage

Omani Clothing

Omani national dress is a symbol of pride and identity that has been designed with the dual intent of providing comfort and adhering to religious beliefs.

In Oman, men wear an ankle-length, loose-fitting garment made of white cotton, known as a kandora or dishdasha. A ghutrah covers the head and is held in place by the agal, a type of black cord. This garment was originally used to protect the face from the harsh desert environment

Omani food

Do you know your karak from your chebab? Can you tell your lugaimat from your labneh? While Oman is renowned for incredible dining options, local Omani cuisine stands apart. Make your way to some of the many Omani restaurants and sample the delicious dishes on offer.
