Oman announces magnificent megaprojects from a theme park to cable car

Check out the three new developments taking place across the country.

We love megaprojects at FACT. So, we were excited to see that Oman’s Ministry of Housing and Urban Planning has announced three developments. As part of Oman Vision 2040, the projects will be located in Dhofar, Musandam and South Batinah, and include a theme park, dining destination and transport network.

Rimal Park will be a family-friendly destination, which aims to promote tourism in the country. Located in Al Batinah Expressway, South Al Batinah, the RO6.9 million project spans 225,000 square meters and will take two years to complete. The site includes a thrilling theme park, and aerial cableway offering panoramic views. Plus, it will be home to features ranging from street food stalls to a shopping mall.

Rathath Boulevard celebrates Omani customs and traditions, and hopes to attract tourists. Located in Salalah, Dhofar, the RO40 million project spans 470,000 square metres and will be completed in four years. The project will be a dining destination showcasing local as well as international cuisine. The features include a theatre, garden with diverse plant life, suspended pathways and an artificial waterway.

Aames Bay Development plans to improve the region’s infrastructure. Located in Niyabat Lima, Musandam, the RO6.9 million project covers 68,700 square meters. Upon completion, it hopes to enhance tourism, create new investment opportunities and improve connectivity in the country.

Visiting Oman became easier, thanks to the new visa rules. Oman recently announced that tourists from more than 100 countries will be able to enter the country without a visa. Plus, residents from GCC countries will be able to visit Oman visa free.

A sucker for a good story, if you invite Kohinoor to a gallery, comedy night, new restaurant, hiking trip, cycle ride, pool day or just about any activity, she’ll probably say yes – that is if she isn’t busy planning her next adventure.
