The Sultanate of Oman offers the visitor a unique opportunity to witness a modern commercial centre existing in harmony with its traditional culture. With its natural harbour, Muscat means “Anchorage” and lies in a natural volcanic bowl. The Sultanate of Oman has one of the oldest civilizations in the Arabian Peninsula. Oman has developed under the leadership of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos Bin Said, today it ranks as a highly developed nation with modern infrastructure.

The interior of Oman has some spectacular mountain scenery and colorful village environs to offer the outdoor explorer. The beaches have excellent quality sand grains. The countryside is dotted with large forts dating from the 17th and 18th centuries. The people of Oman offer a very warm welcome to guests. You will find that traditional Arab greetings are still widely observed and it is good manners to exchange greetings and handshakes when meeting Omanis. These courtesies should be observed in commercial dealings and on a personal level.

While in Oman, one should respect the local customs. It is recommended that women not wear strappy sundresses, miniskirts, shorts or low necked dresses in public places. The most suitable wear in public is shoulders covered and below knee length skirts with a top that is appropriately long (below the hip). Men should wear shirts and long trousers. Shorts or beachwear should not be worn except at the beach or pool area.
