OMAN IS A NATURAL LINK BETWEEN AFRICA AND INDIA
It is also one of the few countries where you can explore a great variety of beautiful landscapes; the Indian Ocean and its golden beaches, the mountains reaching 3000 meters, and the ochre desert still inhabited by Bedouins.
In Oman, the traveler has always been considered as a guest, hence the long tradition of openness and hospitality. MWT loves making you meet locals. The country’s rich history is still present today in the hundreds of stone castles of Oman, witnessing 5,000 years of history such as the Bahla Fort included on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Oman is a unique destination, where the mix of cultures is beautifully expressed, and the opposite of mass tourism must urgently be discovered! Ranked 2nd safety country in the world by World Economic Forum.
Long known as the world’s smallest capital, 40 km of highways are now crossing the city. Muscat offers many luxurious hotels with meeting rooms and a huge convention center.

THE DESERT OF ASH SHARQIYAH SANDS

THE PENINSULA OF MUSANDAM
