For a safe holiday destination, it seems Finland is the place to go, however for those who crave winter sun, there is a far more appealing option, Oman.
According to the World Economic Forum (WEF) Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Report 2017 Oman is the 4th safest holiday destination in the world. They also say that between 2016 and 2026, Oman will be in the top 10 fastest growing destinations for leisure-travel spending.
Certainly the Oman government is striving to ensure that its growth matches those expectations, with a continual flow of new hotel openings, upgrading existing hotels and airport improvements to attracts visitors.
An area that the WEF highlights is Oman’s improved cultural resources.The report includes the need to enhance Oman’s human resource and labour market and emphasised a very low achievement on international openness.
Certainly there is lots for Oman to consider especially to enhance its ability to grow tourism in a very competitive environment. Read the full report here www.tonywalsh.me/s8tg and of course you can buy my Oman Guide on Amazon.
