Are you a long-term resident in Oman? If you are, you can apply at the China Embassy in Oman if you can provide your legal residence certificate. If you are just a normal tourist there, then it will be hard for you to get a China visa and you are advised to apply in your home country.

I'm not sure if you can apply for it in Oman and it is better to confirm with the local China visa service center. Generally, an invitation letter is must to apply for a visa.
