10 times Oman blew your mind!
Oman is an incredible place, full of history, nature and beauty. So it's only fair that at times we take a step back and go... Woah! Here are 10 times, Oman blew your mind!
1: When Nature did this!
Cyclone Gonu was a freak storm that formed on June 1st and dissipated on June 7th. It was unlike anything Oman had ever seen, and we've never seen anything quite like it since!
2: When you realise how old this is
Nakhal fort was built in the pre-Islamic times, and then refurbished for the first time in the 17th century! So we're not even sure how old it actually is!
3: When you look up and see this!
Nature did that! Whaaaat?!
4: When they built a hotel on top of the mountains!
Imagine waking up 6,500ft up!
5: When you go underwater and see this!
Grab a snorkel and go and explore underwater this weekend! We dare ya!
6: When you're driving along Sultan Qaboos Highway and see this!
Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque was completed in 2001 and has the world's second-largest hand woven carpet: it has 1,700,000,000 knots, weighs 21 tonnes and took four years to produce. And the world's second largest chandelier, which is 14 meters tall.
7: When you take the kids to the mall, and they play in this!
Your kids will never be bored ever again; that place is huge!
8: When you're driving home after a long day and see this!
You could stare at that all day!
9: When the earth decided to make this!
A part of the world sunk one day... And now we have the world's coolest swimming pool! AWESOME!
10: When you can spend your weekend swimming in this!
