OMAN, A HIDDEN JEWEL
The Sultanate of Oman is a breathtaking country, rich in natural beauty and history, and intertwined with myths and legends. As the oldest independent state in the Arab World, Oman has embraced modernisation while retaining the core aspects of its heritage, such as seafaring, trading, and exploration. Today, these long-standing traditions blend seamlessly with modern day living – the latest fashion and electronics brands are sold alongside traditional hand-made crafts, jewellery, and even goats and cattle in souks around the country. The people of Oman are warm and hospitable towards visitors from other countries, a fact reflected in the famous Omani hospitality.
