Oman

About Oman

Although modern in its approach, Oman is a country which believes in preserving its rich traditions and culture. Discover crumbling Portuguese forts, magnificent desert sand dunes or follow in the foot steps of centuries old merchant traders and explorers. String together the polished exteriors of Muscat and bind it with the bustle of a souk that adheres as well as serves as a departure from the usual impressions of an Arabic bazaar. Glide through the array of carpets and spices and push towards the silence of a bronze desert, as you weave your way through this Arabian delight making this a must visit destination for people in their 30’s and 40’s.
