The Sultanate of Oman is the third largest country in the Arabian Peninsula. It borders the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in the west, the United Arab Emirates in the northeast, and the Republic of Yemen in the south.
Muscat is the heart of the sultanate, the political and administrative hub of the nation, the centre of tourism and commercial activities. The capital area is a prime example of intelligent and aesthetic development, amalgamating modernity with tradition.
Modern Muscat is home to a range of luxury hotels with upscale restaurants. Among its attractions are a number of magnificent beaches and breathtaking creeks such as Qurum Beach, Al-Jissah, Yitti, and Al-Bustan. Several restored forts, folk museums and traditional souqs are other popular attractions not to be missed.
Oman has consistently ranked first in peace and stability in the Middle East and North Africa, and it also ranks high in economic freedom among all the Arab countries. For more information, visit www.omantourism.gov.om.
