The variety of activities happening in Oman at any given time is immense. Some attractions, however, stand out as must-sees when you visit Oman .
Planning Your Adventure
There are many attractions available in Oman, and it may be difficult to decide which ones you should visit. It may be even more difficult to plan the order in which to see them. If you are not familiar with Oman, you might end up planning a visit to two separate attractions on completely opposite ends of the city. You could easily hire a coach instead, which will transport you in a logical order to the popular attractions, without losing precious time on bad planning when you could be sightseeing.
