FOLLOWING ON FROM THE SUCCESS OF WELCOMING A 15 PERCENT YEAR-ON-YEAR RISE IN VISITOR NUMBERS IN THE FIRST 10 MONTHS OF 2016, OMAN IS SET TO INVEST USD1.17 BILLION INTO ITS TOURISM INDUSTRY BY 2026.

The Sultanate will showcase its expanding hotel and tourism infrastructure at Arabian Travel Market (ATM) in April.

In 2016, Oman saw the addition of 2,022 keys, which despite an 11 percent decrease in occupancy rate, is expected to recover three percent this year.

While highlighting that Oman was named as one of the top places to visit this year, Simon Press, senior exhibition director, ATM, said, "[...] The USD120 million Majarat Oman futuristic theme park, set to open in 2017, will add to the huge selection of options available for families."
