Your new local habits in Oman

Hello everyone,

Living in Oman is a great way to immerse in a new culture and lifestyle.

Have you embraced local customs since you've lived in Oman? If so, which one(s)?

Did local customs change the way you see things, appreciate life or organize your daily routines? As far as the language is concerned, did you learn new expressions or words and do you use them?

What do you like most about the lifestyle in your host country? Are there any local specificities you are still struggling with?

Thanks in advance,


I'm since 16 years working in Oman I like very much. Because here calm and no pollution.
I like custom and culture. Life style is good .

I have liked Oman a lot except this long summer. Learned the Arabic greeting only till now which is Salam walekum..and reply etc.

People here are co-operative which is a great thing.

Sometimes it becomes difficult to explain a person who does not know English or Hindi like while searching for flat but that time other colleauges who knows local language helps..

Im glad to saw oman,specialy salalah,the khareef so nice,the tourism is good,weather is very good also.i liked it too much.

Oman was a nice place to be although always had been a bit boring but now the new labor laws have damaged their reputation. less opportunities and restricted/limited business. Not prosperous at all.


Oman is really good country for living.... as far the language concerned it is interesting to learn new words ....
peoples are very good and very co-operative...
