From the publisher:
Oman is the land that enchanted Marco Polo. It is the country of Sinbad the Sailor, of jinns, of ancient cities that slumber under the desert sands. The foundations of the modern Arab nation of the Sultanate of Oman were laid in 1970 by its monarch and architect, His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said bin Taimur al Said, under whose watchful eye it reemerged onto the global stage and reclaimed thousands of years of its identity.
Today, Oman is a modern-day oasis where the old lives in harmony with the new. People flock to its shores from all over the world for the sparkle of its beaches and the generosity of its people. The world is still discovering the magic of this ancient Arabian land, from the whiff of its legendary frankincense to the hush of its yawning deserts and the sweetness of its sticky halwa. Come immerse yourself, Oman welcomes you marhaba!
