CultureGrams — New Kids Country: Oman

The CultureGrams editors are excited to announce a new Kids edition country report!

Oman Kids

The new Oman report includes detailed information on the history, culture, language, food, and daily life of this country.

Here are some fascinating Did You Knows about Oman:

  • Most of Oman’s drinking water is desalinated (a process that removes salt from water) seawater.
  • Rare frankincense trees, located in Salalah in southern Oman, were once considered as valuable as gold and have grown in Oman for thousands of years.
  • Many Omani men wear a large curved dagger called a khanjar around the waist during official ceremonies or functions.
  •  In Oman, making bukhoor (incense) is a popular money-making activity for many women in Oman.

Find out about popular Omani foods, learn a traditional Arabic song sung during Qaranqashoh, and discover what a child’s average day is like all in this colorful new report. We also added two new interviews with native Omanis to our Faces of the World page.

Tell us what you like about this new report in the comment section.
