Additionally, delegates had the opportunity to explore archaeological wonders such as the Al Baleed archaeological park, the land of Frankincense museum, and the Samharam archaeological park, which stand as testaments to Oman’s ancient civilizations. The itinerary also included immersive experiences amidst nature, with visits to scenic locations like Samhan mountain, Wadi Darbat, and Taqah castle, providing a holistic exploration of Oman’s natural beauty and historical heritage.

As it embarks on this transformative journey to bolster its tourism sector, these initiatives underscore the nation’s commitment to sustainable development, cultural preservation, and economic prosperity. By leveraging its rich heritage and natural landscapes, Oman is poised to emerge as a premier destination for travelers seeking authentic experiences and unforgettable adventures. Through strategic investments, collaborative partnerships, and visionary leadership, Oman is charting a course towards a vibrant and sustainable tourism future, enriching the lives of visitors and locals alike while preserving the nation’s cultural heritage for generations to come.
