If you want to experience “old Arabia”, check out the Sultanate of Oman.

There is a lot to see in this stunning country.  Jagged mountains, beautiful beaches, fertile oases, ancient mud-built towns, imposing forts, unique architecture, and endless seas of desert sands.

The oldest independent state in the Arab World is also one of the most peaceful, stable countries in the region.

Omani culture is rich and varied.  People here are famous for their warmth and generous hospitality.  Frankincense fills the air, while dhows (traditional wooden ships) moor up alongside ultra-modern sailing yachts. 

Oman is a fascinating place to explore.  And best of all, it’s still relatively undiscovered.
