LOCAL FACILITIES

Oman has so much to offer the visitor to Oman regardless of nationality, creed or cultural background. In fact Oman is becoming a serious tourist attraction for travellers from within the Middle East.

The capital area has some of the best hotels in the world, splendid modern shopping malls with the latest goods stocked in well known international stores that you find in London, New York or Singapore. Good restaurants abound, covering the complete range of tastes and budgets. There is plenty of social nightlife and of course as everywhere you go in Oman there is a welcoming friendly greeting for all visitors.

Local Coffee Shop One can enjoy the wonders of the sea fishing, diving, windsurfing, sailing or just cruise the coast in a traditional dhow or a modern cruiser. A short drive from the capital area takes you into breathtakingly beautiful countryside with mountains almost 10,000 feet high and deep wadis and gorges where you can cool off in crystal clear pools. Further afield is the beautiful and unique Wahiba sands. A great weekend pastime for students is to head off into the hills or into the desert with a rented 4-wheel drive to camp under the stars with friends.

If you are not an outdoors person then the capital area offers in addition to the shops and hotels, internet cafes, bowling alleys, shisha restaurants, excellent comfortable cinemas showing the very latest films. There are numerous health clubs available and many varied and interesting cultural and educational clubs and organisations.
