BANGALORE: With an Indian population of 7 lakh, Oman is no stranger to Indian culture and its citizens understand Hindi and occasionally enjoy a Bollywood movie. This was one of the highlights at the II Oman Roadshow held in the city on Monday.
Titled ‘Opulence of Oman’, the roadshow sought to provide information on Oman tourism.
“The best time to visit Oman is between October- March,” said Lubaina Sheerazi, Ministry of Tourism, Sultanate of Oman.
Muscat, the capital city, is only two-and-half hours by flight, from Oman.
With the exchange rate standing at 128 Rupees to 1 Omani Riyal, Sheerazi admitted that the country was looking forward to attract only the affluent travellers, and added that best value deals to Oman would be provided soon by the Tourism Department. “A 3-night leisure trip to Oman would cost about `50,000,” she said.
