Let’s see what this unique Arab country is up to!

Recent history of Oman

Oman had become a British colony in recent history and gained its independence in 1951. After that, the country has been passed to its new King, Sultan Said and since 1970, under the administration of his son, Sultan Qaboos who’s the reason why Oman has become the cool grandmother it is today, along with Jordan. Sultan Qaboos just passed away on 10 January 2020, passing the Sultanate of Oman to his cousin, Sultan Haitham (Because Sultan Qaboos had no children, himself).

People in Oman

Only a little more than half of the population is made up of Omani citizens and the rest are Expats (Mostly from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Zanzibar).

What to do in Oman

Muscat, the capital of Oman

Home to more than %35 of the population, Muscat is Oman’s capital. This city is proudly representing its Arabic history and the city hall is not planning to modernize the skyline to something like their neighbor, Dubai. So, be rest assured that there’s a city that represents the history of Arab nations of the Persian gulf.
The buildings are all in white which is regulated by the City Hall to show a clean, bright look.

  1. Sounds wonderful. I love the waterfall and caves video. I also liked the look of the city with the all white buildings. I’m learning a lot about the world through your posts. Some of the countries I don’t know much about.

  2. Wadi Ash Shab looks amazing. When I think of the Middle East, I automatically think “desert”. I didn’t know Oman had its own natural water park!

    1. Well, when you go to the Middle Eastern countries, you’ll see that the Western media was always lying! For example, in northern Iran, they have the most beautiful jungles that I’ve ever seen, or the people in all of Middle Eastern countries are would treat you just like a celebrity when they know you’re from a western country, (again) especially in Iran!
      For some unknown reason, western media doesn’t want people to have a clear picture from beautiful Middle East!
      Thank you very much for your comment!

        1. Well, there’s no war in most Middle Eastern countries, only in Yemen and some parts of Syria and Iraq as we’re speaking, while there are 18 countries in the Middle East!
          Thank you for your comment dear Julia!

        1. I know what you are talking about!
          For me, I found peace while being in quarantine, but now that everything’s going back to normal, I feel a bit lazy to restart life, where things got left off! lol!
