Sitting strategically on the southern eastern coast of Arabian Peninsula and positioned significantly at the mouth of the Persian Gulf, the Sultanate of Oman is bordered by Yemen to the south, Saudi Arabia to the west and UAE to the northwest. Flanked by a long coastline of almost 1,700 km on one side that stretches from one end to the other, the country boasts beautiful geographic diversification. From deserts, mountain ranges to valleys, coastal plains and lush greenery, Oman has it all. Oman is the oldest independent state in the Arab peninsula that has experienced a long haul of international isolation and internal political turmoil that has kept it away from the eyes of the world until the 1970s. It was then that Sultan Qaboos Bin Said, the current Sultan came into power with a more liberal approach and opened up the country for more economic reforms.
