Officially the Sultanate of Oman, Oman is an Arab country in the southeastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula. With its wild mountain, desert landscapes and a pristine coastline, you can enjoy a fantastic natural beauty here. Meanwhile its rich heritage and embracing society offer you an ancient, traditional and frankincense-trading past.
Unlike its resource-rich neighbors, Oman has modest oil reserves, ranking at 25th globally. It is an absolute monarchy and Sultan Qaboos is the longest-serving ruler in the Middle East. Its human rights record has been the subject of criticism.
