Oman has a long history steeped in isolation which has helped maintain its ancient culture and amazing natural landscapes. Some amazing experiences await the intrepid traveler- such as savoring saffron halva within the ancient walls of Nizwa , exploring the cliffs of Salalah rich in frankincense, working on turtle conservation on the beaches of Ras al Jinz, or sailing through the 'fjords' of Musandam. Now fully open to tourism, Oman has been reluctant to follow in its neighbors' path by building miles of skyscrapers and shopping malls. It is one of the few places in the Persian Gulf where you will find genuine tolerance for different perspectives and where nomadic Bedouin traditions mix freely with modern city life. From fabulous luxury retreats on the Gulf of Oman to outdoor accommodations in the Wahabi sands –staying anywhere in Oman is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
