Oman occupies the far south-eastern corner of the Arabian Peninsula, extending 3,165 km from the Strait of Hormuz in the north, to the borders of the Republic of Yemen in the south and shares its coast with three seas: the Arabian Gulf, the Gulf of Oman and the Arabian Sea. It also comprises a number of islands off the coast, among them the islands of Masirah, Halanyat and Salama.
From the ancient city of Nizwa to the towns along the coast to the Capital to Salalalah, all seeped in history, you can experience Oman's sense of timelessness, rich in culture, history, arts, architecture, folklore and artistry.
The Sultanate enjoys an unspoiled culture and traditional lifestyle in almost every aspect. Even in its modernity, Oman is distinctly Arabic and offers many unique old-world wonders.
Oman boasts an unprecedented number of UNESCO-classified World Heritage Sites including Bat—with its tombs dating back 3,000 years, the Fort of Bahla, and the majestic Frankincense Route which commences from Dhofar and includes Al-Blaid; site of the ancient city of Zafar, Khawr Rawri, Shisr and Wadi Dukah.
