ATM to Highlight Cultural Tourism

According to Colliers International, Saudi Arabia and Oman will lead the GCC’s investments in cultural tourism, a segment which is set to feature heavily at Arabian Travel Market (ATM) on April 24 – 27.

Under its Vision 2030, Saudi Arabia is ready to invest USD2 billion to boost its cultural offering, one off the highest commitments in the region.

This will see the number of museums grow from 155 to 241 as well as the total UNESCO World Heritage Sites increase from four to 10, among others.

Meanwhile, in 2015, Oman pledged USD2.5 billion for Omagine Project, a mixed-use complex that will add to the country’s growing cultural tourism sector.

Upon completion, Oman will boast 18 museums and Royal Opera House Muscat, to name a few.
