Oman is flourishing under the banner of an international tourist destination. Not very popular a few decades ago, it has clearly made its mark on the markets in Australia and New Zealand alike with arrivals growing at around 13 percent per year. According to the tourism officials of Oman, the emphasis is now on tactical marketing, working closely the wholesale and retail partners, not only to increase awareness but also to motivate people to travel by putting appropriate packages in the tourist market place. Hence the spotlight is on tour operators in Oman to see how well they use the support of their government to their advantage and in turn make Oman a list-topper on the tourism world map.
Infrastructure-wise Oman is all set for the flow of foreign tourists. Its fast-expanding portfolio of hotels and hotel apartments are drawing tourists from all over the world. Tour operators have self-designed packages to satisfy every type of traveler. From adventure getaways to quiet holidays, from wildlife excursions to scenic pleasure travel, every tour operator has the ideal target audience for every tour. All of the tour companies in the Sultanate are aware of the rules and regulations governing tourists and destinations such as wildlife observation and visits to protected areas. But only some tour operators are extremely well equipped to cater to almost any of the varied preferences.
In Oman even the government organizations work hand in hand with tour operator to benefit the tourists. The Historical Association of Oman is a non-governmental organization that has a special interest in the natural history of the Sultanate. Birdwatchers can obtain information and copies of the Oman Bird List from the Oman Bird Records Committee. The Oman Natural History Museum houses superb displays wildlife found in Oman, marine fauna and flora and a separate and outstanding whale hall.
No matter what your interests are, you can be assured that you are in good hands with a government certified tour operator in Oman.
