Located on the southern end of the Arabian Peninsula, Oman is a welcoming nation of rich history and diverse landscapes. Oman is historically known as a country of traders and fishermen but thanks to the oil wealth in the middle east, it has developed at a lightning speed in recent decades. From spectacular mountains and dramatic deserts to serene coastlines and grand mosques, Oman is an exciting destination with beautifully preserved Omani heritage as well as many pristine natural wonders.
The Sultanate of Oman is in the Middle East, on the southeastern end of the Arabian Peninsula. It borders the United Arab Emirates in the northwest, Saudi Arabia in the west, and Yemen in the southwest. Oman has two exclaves separated from it by the United Arab Emirates, the Musandam Peninsula and Madha. (Oman Wikitravel)
