The Sultanate of Oman is a truly wonderful country, full of beautiful places to visit and interesting things to see. Some tourists are content to spend their holidays within the confines of their luxurious Arabian styled 4 star hotels, and there is nothing wrong with that.

I have traveled extensively throughout the Sultanate and not seen half of all there is to see. Will you follow me and شوف Oman?
