Oman has a hot, dry climate with fewer rainfalls and therefore the desert style of flora can be found here. Desert shrubs, desert grass, and Date Palms are found everywhere in this country.  Dolphins and turtles are found in blue waters of Oman with other species of fish.  Goats /sheep are the most common animals which you can find everywhere and even crossing the roads while driving.  Camels are the most important animal of this place. There are many wildlife animals too but can be spotted if you go inside the mountains.

You will find sugar cubed houses in mud color with arched doors all over in Oman. As the whole country is having rugged mountains some of the clusters of houses or towns are located on zig-zag mountain base. It is like Santorini of the Middle East. Doors are the special feature in the Omani houses. If you love traditional doors or arches, then you would love this country as there are many photo shoot options with them.

  1. That’s such a treat to eyes. The photos are really enthralling, I did not know much about Oman before, but looking at your pictures, I think I would like to visit it soon. My favorite is the flora and fauna section.

    1. Thanks Shreya, Oman is very picturesque and sometimes flora and fauna of desert are also interesting though it is found very less.

  2. I have always felt that Oman is an underrated destination as compared to places like Dubai and Sharjah. But these pictures burst the myth. The varied natural landscapes that Oman is blessed are really stunning. The architectural treasures too are of course exquisite. Your pictures have captured the best of Oman in vivid detail.

    1. Thanks Sandy, I too agree before going to Oman, I also thought to be non-touristy part but after visiting it twice, I am interested to go again and again

  3. Some of these pictures are absolutely stunning! I have never visited Oman but you’re making me want to pack and go there right now! I never knew Oman has so much to offer. Thank you for sharing this lovely article and these beautiful pictures

  4. Such beautiful photographs! I had heard about the beauty of Oman, and now I know that it is so true. There is such diversity in landscape, the architectures are also so wonderful. after seeing these pictures, I realy want to make a visit to Oman now!

  5. I have not visited Oman yet but do have it on my list to visit places and there are s few reasons for this. Your photo tour only wants me to get there sooner and soak in all this new budding tourist destination has on offer for the world. There is natural beauty in those mountains and I am quite a fan of Middle Eastern cuisine so that’s another tick. One of my go to place would be the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque for the grandeur and peaceful aspect it carries I must say. Overall a photographers paradise and you have captured it really well. Thanks for sharing Oman with the world

    1. Thanks Amar for all appreciation. Oman is really beautiful but not known to many people as a tourist destination.

  6. I’ve recently visited the Middle East and am now intrigued to see more places like Oman. Your post showed a great variety of landscapes and I didn’t know there were fjords in Oman! Your photos were beautiful and hopefully will convince more people to plan a trip.

  7. Oman looks so beautiful. Not just the rustic feel of nature but the architecture of the mosque and fort really make me want to plan a trip there right away. Your post took me on a virtual tour and I would save this post to plan my trip there.

  8. I love photo tours of destinations. It gives me an idea of the personality of the place and what all I would want to see. Oman has recently come onto my radar. It is quite diverse in topography it seems! Most on your list I would want to see the fjords, the sinkhole (wow that color!) and the mosques. I find them so beautiful!

  9. Oman looks like a gorgeous place for a photo tour! There is such gorgeous stunning architecture – the mosques and especially the opera house. I didn’t think about the beaches until I read this post, those beaches look pretty spectacular too. There are so many beautiful lines and textures to photograph in Oman. Gorgeous.

  10. What a beautiful destination!! The date palms are beautiful. For us, we always know we’re on vacation when we see palm trees. Date palms are new to me though. Swimming in the colourful Bimmah Sinkhole looks wonderful. I love the architecture and the souks. It’s like nothing we’ve ever experienced before which makes it all the more lovely.
