Voice of Travelers to Oman

Great Adventure with a Cheap Air Ticket!

Last December, I was looking for a cheap air ticket to travel to a foreign nation in January. It was very hard to find one as I didn't book the ticket earlier. The tickets to Oman had the lowest price, so I decided to go there. As I did some research before flying to Oman, Grand Mosque and Mutrah Souq were very fascinating. The Persian carpet in Grand Mosque was very big and complicated. I heard that it took 4 years for 600 people to make. I almost got lost in Mutrah Souq, but thanks to the nice Omani, I had a great time there too.
For student travelers, I strongly recommend visiting Oman. Don't forget to book your air ticket in advance!

Oman Air was Great

Last year I bought an air ticket with Oman Air, and it still is the best service I have had. No other airline has come close to the quality that Oman Air had offered. Certainly, my reason to visit Oman again is to fly with Oman Air. Locals seemed so friendly, and tourist attractions were very exciting. I especially liked Royal Opera House Muscat and Sultan's Palace. If you are planning to visit some Middle Eastern country, you should book an air ticket to Oman with Oman Air.

Tickets for the National Museum in Muscat

Muscat is definitely a place to go to for all who haven't yet. Just by getting an air ticket to Muscat International Airport, anybody can tour a number of tourist locations with convenience. Mutrah Souq was very colorful and busy with people. Mutrah Corniche was breathtakingly gorgeous, especially at sunset. National Museum had numbers of quality artifacts displayed. Although the entrance ticket fee was not quite cheap, the time was worth the cost. For travelers with a budget, Muscat will be the best place.
