Oman planning to build iconic landmark like the Eiffel Tower

Oman is planning to build an iconic landmark similar to the Eiffel Tower in Paris in a bid to attract more tourists.

The plans, unveiled in the 2019 annual report produced by the Implementation Support and Follow-up Unit (ISFU), would see the tourist attraction built in a mixed-use development.

The report says, “With Oman increasingly finding itself in the international tourism spotlight, this initiative aims to create an iconic landmark that a global audience could associate directly with the Sultanate of Oman.

“Similar to landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France, the proposed landmark would also function as a destination product to attract tourism into the country.”

No further details were revealed as to what the landmark would be, but the report noted that the team were looking for a suitable location.

Other initiatives covered in the report include eco-tourism, creating food and beverage cultural precincts - including a Muscat food court - and targeting new tourism markets such as Russia and China.

Oman also plans to classify its restaurants and create a food directory app.
