Mini Guide to Oman

Oman is divided in two by the United Arab Emirates. A small mountainous area at the tip of the MUSANDAM peninsula overlook the strategic Strait of HORMUZ, which controls the entrance to THE GULF. The main part of the country consists of a fertile coastal plain (BATINAH) in the far north, the limestone HAJAR MOUNTAINS rising to 3018 m (990 I ft), and a largely barren plateau with small fishing harbours to the south. The DHOFAR coast in the far south is fertile and has reliable monsoon rain from June to September, and there is good pasture in Dhofar's mountains. Inland the plateau merges into the largely unexplored 'Empty Quarter' in Saudi Arabia. 

Oil, found mainly in the north, provides 90 per cent of exports, and there are also copper and natural gas. However, 70 per cent of the people live by farming or fishing. With high temperatures and low, generally unreliable rainfall, only 0.1 per cent of the land is cultivated. This area includes the Batinah a potentially rich garden area, land around mountain villages which have ancient irrigation systems, and sheltered mountain valleys. Whilst Muscat and Salalah are the main tourist destiantions, there is plenty to see beyond the city limits.

Located at the tip of the Arabian Peninsula, Musandam is separated from the rest of Oman by the UAE and home to some of the country's most dramatic landscapes, as well as the world-famous Zighy Bay. Nicknamed the 'Fjords of the Middle East', the crystal clear waters surrounding the area, coupled with the chance to spot dolphins, migrating whales, hundreds of fish species and beautiful coral, make it the perfect location for a diving or snorkelling break.

With familiar car hire companies located at all major arrival points offering an extensive range of cars, there's little to be concerned about when it comes to driving in Oman.

To make life easier, all rental cars in Oman are automatic models so even if you are not familiar with driving on the right hand side of the road, changing gear is one less thing to worry about.

Whilst speed limits in Oman are modest, you can be fined for driving too slowly on the motorway, aim to keep up with the flow of traffic and avoid the left-lane (fastest) on the motorways until you are comfortable with overtaking.
