Dominated by an interior of jagged mountains (jebels), vast desert and plains, Oman is a panoramic delight occupying the eastern bulge of the Arabian Peninsula, and until recently has been among the backwaters of world tourism. The country’s vast and varied landscape has almost a childlike innocence – unspoilt, unblemished and uncorrupted.
Geographically the country ranges from the fiord-like barren majesty of the Musandam Peninsular that plunges into the Strait of Hormaz in the north, to the lush, monsoon-laden tropical Salalah in the south. In between lays the vast sandy desert (Rub al Khali, the famed ‘Empty Quarter) and the fertile Batinah Plain.
Populated as early as 6000 years BC, few countries can boast to have suffered so little oppression. Only in the 17th century was Oman partially occupied by the Portuguese, and once expelled, the country has maintained self rule through the royal sultan family of Bin Said. Held back by years of over-conservative, inward thinking rule, Sultan Qaboos bin Said came to the throne in 1970 after disposing his father which began a renaissance that brought Oman from the dark ages into the 21st century. Today the country has great prosperity through its oil, copper, gold, marble & granite, and more recently tourism. With this wealth Oman has gently modernized the country without the show of flashy excesses as displayed by its neighbour, the United Arab Emirates.
