Located between Yemen and the United Arab Emirates, Oman is the oldest independent state in the Arab world. This Arab nation is officially called Sultanate of Oman and is a member of the United Nations. The capital city of Muscat is a thriving metropolis with a vibrant economy. Besides the spectacular scuba diving in Oman, tourists also enjoy breathtaking landmarks like the Ras al Jinz Turtle Reserve, Wahiba Sands, the Salalah rain forest, refreshing Jebel Shams water canyons, and Wadi Bani Khalid wadis.
