A Magnificent Journey Through the Sands of Time 

 
“What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well”
— Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

This is old Arabia, a land reminiscent of what all of Arabia once was. A land of cultures and traditions going back to pre-islamic times. Otherworldly terrains, dotted with dominating forts in the North, to lush green valleys in the South. The desert is fragrant with mystery and incense.

Muscat is a serene maritime city, with a natural harbour and enchanting port. Though modern life has displaced the ancient bedouin ways, the country still retains a cultural innocence. Tales from antiquity of myth and legends are told from father to son. Only fitting for the land whose adopted son is Sinbad.

The friendly locals wear colourful caps contrasting with their spotless white robes. They proudly show visitors the beautiful beaches, untainted landscapes, old souks and historical sites. In the national museum there are books with a second book written in the margins. Similarly, the past and present coexist together in this magnificent city.
