Life in Oman

Oman is a land of contrasts and is known as the Pearl of Arabia. It simultaneously surprises with its diversity – of landscape, history and culture – and encapsulates the epitome of Arabian experience.

Oman overlooks the Arabian Sea, the Sea of Oman, and the Arabian Gulf. It also overlooks the Strait of Hormuz, which links the Sea of Oman with the Arabian Gulf.

Oman is a country with a relaxed way of life. It is welcoming, safe and family-oriented, which make it one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Middle East.

Discover the magic of the desert. Explore a rich and diverse landscape, savour souqs, taste the best Omani cuisine, see the hustle and bustle of traditional fishing villages and hear the echoes of centuries-old local culture.
