Unlike its constantly changing neighbours, Oman, situated in the southeast of the Arabian Peninsula and washed over by the Gulf of Oman and the Arabian Sea, boasts a very well-preserved ancient Arabian atmosphere and near-pristine nature. Authenticity and tradition are highly cherished here. Oman opened its doors to tourists only recently.

The coastline of the Sultanate of Oman stretches for over 2000 km and is filled with warm sandy beaches and quiet, pristine shores, framed with lanky palm trees and dotted with boats and ships. Here you’ll also find many rocky shores, caves, islands and lagoons that are ideal for fishing or water tours. The country is a real haven for travellers who long for romance and tranquillity. Oman shares borders with the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Yemen. The spectacular Al Hajar Mountains stretch across the Gulf of Oman. The country has many magnificent white sandy beaches.

The mountain range, the hundreds of historic forts, the scores of local vendors selling copper and silver articles, and the smell of frankincense is only a small part of the authentic Oman. The Sultanate consists of 4 provinces and 5 regions, each of them unique. The country’s modern face – and especially the capital city Muscat and the flourishing cities of Salalah and Sohar – is also quite charming. Here, contemporary architecture intertwines with Indian and Persian elements, and tourist innovations mix with the ancient Arabian culture and traditions.
