  • The sultanate of Oman is shrouded in legend and largely unknown. In recent years, the country has opened up to western visitors, who enjoy the endless expanses of the desert, verdant high mountain regions, fertile oases and miles of coastline with turquoise waters. In the capital, we see that the sultanate is well on its way into the modern age. Muscat is spotlessly clean and neither surprisingly un-traditional nor typically Arabic. While the city focuses on luxury and extravagance, sporting the region’s first opera house, the villages remain steeped in the atmosphere of oriental fairy tales.
