Oman Cultural Highlights

Sunset at Oman's Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque.

Many of the members of the community at the U.S. Embassy in Muscat have known the joy of traveling throughout Oman, and getting to know the wonderful sights and experiences the Sultanate has to offer. Starting this week, we will be sharing with you some of the photographs and experiences taken by Embassy personnel, from their travels in Oman.

We hope these images and stories inspire you to explore the Sultanate as well, whether you are an Omani, or an expatriate who happens to be living or traveling here. We are grateful to live in such a beautiful country, with so many opportunities to explore, and get to know the enchanting landscapes, striking architecture, and friendly people of this land.
