The Sultanate of Oman is a place of mysticism, natural beauty and archaeological marvels. Oman is an Arab country on the southeast coast of the Arabian Peninsula, bordering the United Arab Emirates on the northwest, Saudi Arabia on the west and Yemen on the southwest. Its coast is formed by the Arabian Sea on the south and east and the Gulf of Oman on the northeast. Oman exudes great untouched natural beauty from its golden sandy beaches to the towering mountain ranges with an unspoiled culture and traditional lifestyle in almost every aspect. Oman is distinctly Arab and offers visitors a glimpse of many unique old-world wonders.
