Oman is a gulf nation nestled in the Arabian Peninsula. The terrain is so varied that it encompasses riverbed oases, desert, and long coastlines on the Persian Gulf, Arabian Sea and the Gulf of Oman, which all contribute to the diverseness of the country. The capital is Muscat, which is a port city. The colossalSultan Qaboos Grand Mosque is situated in the capital city whilst in the old waterfront Muttrah quarter, the intricate souk and the bustling fish market is located.
If settling in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), flying over the Gulf in transit of a few days, or simply holidaying in one of the states of UAE, a visit to Oman is a must and is only a hop-skip and a jump away from Al-Ain which borders Oman.
