Oman stands in stark contrast to the UAE with its rich heritage, a strong sense of identity, a pride in the ancient, miles of pristine untouched nature and a chance to engage with the authentic Arab world without the distorting lens of excessive wealth. You will feel as though you have been transported back in time, when values such as hospitality, respect, kindness and generosity were still held dear. Omanis are simple people – they are religious, friendly and extremely hospitable. The country is replete with historical treasures from the olden times, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, magnificent landscapes, pristine waters and spectacular deserts. Oman has a beautifully traditional soul!
