Arriving in the Sultanate of Oman you feel as if you are on a Hollywood set. Orderly. Vast. Visually breathtaking. Often visitors liken it to Disneyland. Controlled. Well-organized, meticulously maintained public grounds. Friendly. Happy. Helpful. Tolerant. No litter. No vagrancy. No graffiti. No terrorism. No violence. No radicalism. No unsafe areas.It is all this and more.

Oman is a land where the colorful strands of history, traditions, languages, and landscapes are carefully woven into a vibrant tapestry rich in culture. The country is recognized by the World Economic Forum in 2017 at the 4th safest country in the world. Before 1970 the Sultanate was one of the least developed countries in the Arab world, with an average life expectancy of 49 years. Thanks to the leadership and wisdom of Sultan Qaboos Bin Said, the country experienced a period of rapid modernization lifting the nation out of poverty. Today, Oman has a highly-developed highway system, hundreds of schools, colleges, and universities, hundreds of modern hospitals, and a growing and innovative private sector. This period of modernization was met with reverence to the traditions of the Sultanate leading to the preservation of the rich Omani heritage and a harmonization between tradition and modernity.
