Muscat: In a move to increase interest in domestic tourism, the Ministry of Tourism has launched a social media competition.
Three questions are asked on the ministry’s facebook page about the different tourist destinations in Oman in the competition and the participants will stand a chance to win a night stay and Iftar at one of the Sultanate’s hotels.
One question is posted in English every Tuesday while two Arabic questions are posted every Sunday and Thursday.
The competition is open to residents of Oman and people from abroad.
“Engaging with the residents of the Sultanate is one of our main priorities, and through this competition we would like to encourage our residents to discover the beautiful attractions of this country and to promote these destinations. Our presence on social media also gives the Sultanate the opportunity to be present on a global scale,” Haitham Al Ghassani, Assistant Director General of Tourism Promotion for Tourism & Domestic Events, said.
To enter the competition, the participant must answer from their personal facebook account and answer the questions through the link provided.
The winners are announced at the next day and to receive their prizes they can visit the Director General of Tourism Promotion at the Ministry of Tourism at the end of each week.
