All things aromatic, including frankincense, bukhoor, myrrh, and conventional perfumes, are famed in Oman.
Oman begs to be explored, with an irresistible blend of old world Arabian beauty and heritage, and modernism that is less ostentatious than some of its neighbours.
Oman, which occupies the southeastern section of the Arabian Peninsula and is bordered by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, is breathtakingly gorgeous. With rugged rocky mountains and deep water inlets in the north, vast windswept dunes and salt flats in the central interior, verdant green hills in the southern Dhofar province, and a coastline stretching thousands of miles with spectacular beaches and secluded coves, its topography is varied and dramatic.
Muscat, the port capital, has a rich history that can be felt as you walk through its historic streets. Explore the unique sights, sounds, and smells of the majestic Stately Mosque, the frenetic Mutrah souq (bazaar) and fish market, and the grand Sultan's Palace.
