Photos - Oman 

You can find the quintessence of the orient in the Sultanate of Oman, the homeland of Sinbad the Sailor and flying carpets. Oman's attractions include a largely untouched coastline, mountains, canyons, deserts and the burgeoning capital Muscat, with its forts and palaces. The Omanis are open-minded and unaffectedly friendly towards strangers - you'll feel immediately at home, even if you don't speak a single word of Arabic.

If you are planning to visit the Sultanate of Oman you may be interested in having a quick look at several photos we have compiled. Click the links below to view the pictures. We have taken any attempt to provide exact (GPS-based) coordinates of the positions where the photos have been taken.
