Understanding Oman - An Overview
Oman is a popular getaway in southeast corner of the Arabian Peninsula that is home to well-preserved heritage, rich Arabic culture and renowned destination resorts.
A majority of Oman’s population is clustered in and around Muscat, its capital, and around its coastline. A historic city, Muscat today is a bustling modern metropolis, representing Oman’s global vision and ambitions. In contrast to Muscat, a visit to Oman’s countryside and its glistening desert and stunning valleys takes you straight into the world of ‘Arabian Nights’.
For the adventurous, Oman’s abundant natural beauty, diverse landscape, golden desert, and pristine coastline offer exciting opportunities for enjoying 4x4 desert safaris, mountain trekking, scuba diving, dhow sailing and a lot more.
Oman is a popular getaway for evolved travellers looking for an alternative to Dubai / UAE.
