The Sultanate of Oman is a country in The Arabian Gulf yet to fully embrace the modern world like its neighbour Dubai. During my few days in this mystical land, I experienced a taste of traditional Arabia, past and present around Muscat, Sharqiya and Al Dakhiliyah regions of the country. A land where white-robed Omani men – young and old – saunter under cobalt blue skies; where old-world culture and desert villages that have existed for hundreds of years shimmer under the intense heat of the Arabian sun.
