On 22 September 2022, Oman welcomed the first ever Chinese tour operators FAM trip to The Sultanate, probably the first Chinese FAM trip to overseas destination since pandemic. 

Not many people know, Chinese did travel in 2021, mainly for business essential.

The FAM trip  welcomed 12 Chinese tour operators that focus on outbound travel, majority are Chinese agents reside overseas. The event was held on September 22-25. The objective is to introduce the destination to Chinese market in preparation for its much awaited reopening. 

Chinese tour operators arrived Muscat, visited Nizwa the ancient city, dolphin watching, boating & snorkeling (close encounter with giant turtle) !. They also visited Jabal Al Akhdar, the Grand Canyon of Middle East, which ranked No. 1 attractions according to Lonely planet. Rumours said that the late Princess Diana visited this place.

Feedback from Chinese agents: perhaps not many Chinese thought about Oman previously, the long beach, desert, valley, wadi, mountain, greenery, Unesco heritage sites and  over 500 forts and castles definitely worth visiting.

The event was organized by Ministry of Heritage and Tourism, supported by China Travel Online.
