Driving Directions Oman
OMAN, or the Sultanate of Oman, is an oil-rich state in the southern Arabian Peninsula. It has a new enclave at the northern tip of the Musandam Peninsula, which is separated from the rest of the country by the United Arab Emirates.
Oman is a small country in two parts. It comprises a small mountainous area, overlooking the Strait of Hormuz, which controls the entrance to The Gulf, and the central part of the country, consisting of barren hills rising sharply behind a narrow coastal plain. Inland the hills extend into the unexplored Rub al Khali (The Empty Quarter) in Saudi Arabia.
