Discovering the Hospitality of Oman

Posted by : Daniel James Clarke

The impressive architecture around the city is no more evident than at the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, its doors open for all who wish to visit. On the Muttrah Corniche as the sun sets, I stroll past families and friends laughing over coffee and dates, an occasional person offering me one. I watch the last of the day’s sun from a bench by the Fort, excited to discover what else Oman has to offer.

Destined to Come to Oman

Posted by : Raya Al Maskari

In 1989, my husband was offered a position with an Omani company and I learnt that my father in law also had come to Oman in 1964 on board INS Brahmaputra. That’s when I knew we were destined to come to Oman and we did in 1990. I just fell in love with Oman. It was definitely love at first sight. I got off the plane and the drive into the city along Qurum Heights to Corniche was most spectacular. As I got to know Omani people, I knew we were in a great place.
