Modest oil reserves have allowed Oman todevelop, but rather than get caught up in the Gulf State oil mania, the Omani peoplestill identify more with their age-old traditions as a trading and seafaring nation.A stable and hospitable state, Oman provides, perhaps more than other MiddleEastern country, an enchanting blend of colorful, exotic landscapes, rich history andculture, and an understanding of and careful integration with the modern world.
