Oman has been one of the most isolated Arabian outposts that have maintained the traditional Bedouin culture. Despite its exceptional safety record, the Sultanate of Oman was seldom visited by foreigners until 1970. Things have changed as modern Oman is on par with the development pace set by neighboring Middle Eastern states such as UAE and Qatar. Sultan Qaboos bin Said overtook government in 1970 and propelled the nation towards economic reforms in health, education, construction, and social welfare. Here are five interesting facts that are bound to entice anyone to visit this beautiful land:
5 Facts You Might Not Know
Oman has nearly 2,700 km of pristine coast untouched by hordes of visitors. A network of tracks and graded highways from Filim to Shwaymiyah makes these desolate sandy beaches accessible to public. There are a number of world-class beach resorts offering an array of activities including kite-surfing, swimming, snorkeling, and diving. Traditional fishing villages are only accessible by driving through narrow dirt tracks.
The first Oman World Fireworks Championships was held in 2010. It is one of the largest and most spectacular firework events in the world. Teams from six continents took part in the latest championship. The government of Oman has announced ongoing annual championships that will enhance the international reputation of Oman as a gateway to the Middle East.
Oman is one of the few countries where every major city has its own fort. Most of these forts were built around 1624 and 1744 during Al-Yarubi dynasty when Oman was considered one of the citadels of Arab civilization. Some of these forts such as Bahla and Nakhal are in pristine conditions. There are functioning water wells and secret tunnels ending many kilometers away from the edge of the fort wall.
Falajs is a unique irrigation system in Oman that dates back more than 2000 years. These water tunnels still play an important role in the irrigation system of the Sultanate. The World Heritage Committee has named five Falajs in its list of international importance.
Oman is famous for its world-renowned Frankincense route. Recent documentaries on National Geographic and Discovery channels have highlighted the importance of this route since the middle ages. In 2000, numerous sites on Frankincense trails were incorporated as world heritage sites including Frankincense land museum, Al Balid City, Khawr al Baleed, Khawr Ruri, Awbar, and Wadi Dukah.
