Experience Oman summer drive to promote domestic tourism

MUSCAT: The Ministry of Tourism has launched the 2018 summer campaign under the theme ‘Discover Beauty of Oman’ with 51 hotels taking part through offering attractive packages during the season in a bid to benefit from unique tourist potentials of the Sultanate during summer.
Saleh bin Ali al Khayfi, Director of Tourism Promotion and Marketing Department in the Ministry of Tourism, said that the campaign, which was launched on May 21, will last for three months. It focuses on moderate temperature zones in many locations, such as Jabal Shams, Al Jabal Al Akhdar, Al Ashkhara Beach and a number of villages and valleys as well as the beaches stretched across Al Wusta Governorate.
He said the campaign aims primarily at activating the domestic tourism movement and attracting visitors from GCC citizens and residents, in addition to highlighting the tourist sites that can be visited during summer.
About the offers given as part of the campaign, Al Khayfi said those interested can take advantage of these offers by logging on to www.experienceoman.om.
As part of the campaign, hotels are making efforts in coordination with Oman Air and SalamAir to offer a variety of packages which attract tourists from both within the country and abroad. Be it Muscat or other governorates, there are a wide range of choices of spacious Omani style rooms with non-conventional experience.
Oman Air is giving attractive summer offers according to which the tourists coming to the Sultanate can combine the Oman Air package and the hotel accommodation of their choice in any attractive tourist destination which includes a return ticket, stay at the selected hotel and tourist packages in Salalah, Muscat or Musandam at reasonable prices.
Tourists can enjoy the bright sun on the clean and pristine beaches of Muscat and visit amazing fortresses and castles in Nizwa or Musandam or enjoy the exceptional weather in Dhofar in autumn.
In addition to the reductions in hotel rates and costs of enjoying multiple facilities, there are also packages to experience the beauty of Oman.
