Nestled on the eastern edge of the Arabian peninsula, you’ll discover a country rich in history and tradition, and blessed with a mosaic of changing landscapes unique to the region. Similar to the many palm lined oases in the country, the Sultanate of Oman is an island of peace and respite from the turbulence of the surrounding area.
An oasis for travellers in the heart of the Arabian peninsula
Where the neighbouring UAE prides itself on a hectic pace of change and development, Oman has opted for a more measured approach to modernity, with a focus on accentuating its rich cultural patrimony. The result is a country of fascinating contrasts: the modern with the traditional, the sea with the desert, charming rural towns and its sparklingly beautiful capital, Muscat.
The lack of brash construction projects, and relative quiet on the world stage has meant that for the most part, Oman is unknown to the great majority of travellers. This makes it even more attractive for those looking for a destination that’s easily accessible but still untroubled by mass tourism. From its spectacular mountain peaks, unique rock formations and spectacular dunes to its crystal clear oases and unspoiled coastlines, Oman has so much to offer for those seeking the real Arabia.
