Oman is a desert land of fragrant incense full of beautiful beaches and canyons, lying on the edge of the Persian Gulf. The head of the country is the Sultan, who led his country to significant economic prosperity. There are no skyscrapers in the capital, the Omani really enjoy the traditions and are very conservative. Muscat offers you beautiful mosques, souq and the historic city centre. Oman boasts breath-taking nature with well-maintained Arab fortresses such as Nizwa or Jibreen Castle. Tourists head for huge canyons such as Jabel Samhan or Wadi Ghul. Wadi are dry river beds, somewhere filled with water, which are one of the most beautiful places to swim. You shouldn’t miss the beauty of sandy beaches, which are empty and completely without tourists.
