The Middle Eastern country of Oman is getting increasingly popular with tourists lately, but I still don’t think it gets the credit it deserves. Check out these Oman pictures!
This Arab country has some incredible sights that range from historic castles to desert canyons and rocky mountains. Oman is also a very safe place to travel, with one of the lowest homicide rates in the world.
Hopefully these Oman pictures inspire you to visit too!
Did you know there’s a “Grand Canyon” of Oman? Here’s what it looks like.
This canyon may not be as big as the one in Arizona, but the scale is still amazing. See that tiny foot path winding along the edge of the canyon?
The countryside of Oman is full of old castles and towers like this.
