The memories you have with Oman are something worth to be treasured. And it would be a lot more remarkable if you have something you can display to remind you that you’ve been in Oman. Don’t think of this as an extra expense but imagine this like you are collecting your trophies because not all people can fly abroad and qualify for a job. Here’s the list of the best souvenirs you can find in Oman
Souvenirs You Need To Get Before Leaving Oman
Dates are the sweetest souvenir you can get in Oman. Apart from being a part of Omani’s diet, it’s also a good gift to your family and friends back in your home country. These fruits can be eaten fresh or dried but since you are flying for hours or even for a day, dried dates would be more appropriate to bring home. These are good with coffee if you want to enjoy a balanced sweet and bitter taste.
Frankincense and Incense Burner
As you all know, Oman is the Land of Frankincense and this is the best place to get your incense burner you could use at home. Burning incense in your home country would surely make you feel that you are Oman again! To enjoy this souvenir, buy the medkhan (incense burner) with resin drops and charcoal discs at any souk in Oman.

You have the option to bring either the smallest or the biggest one.
