In the 1500s Portuguese sea traders came to occupy this area, followed by the French, and ultimately the British who made this place a protectorate until the 1970s. Discovered in the mid-70s, the main resource in Oman is still oil – producing 1 million barrels a day with a large international export market, including the U.S. Today, natural gas is also exported … 10.4 million tons of gas exported internationally. Muscat is not the glitzy high rises of Dubai, Doha or Abu Dhabi. This is a more traditional development albeit with everything ultra-modern.

A thriving and strategically located port of the Arabian Peninsula in ancient times, Muscat, retains its somewhat medieval appearance. The seaside, ceremonial palace of H.M.Sultan Qaboos Said, nestled between steep rocky hills, offers a spectacular sight. Muscat, the official capital of Oman, is only a small part of a larger grouping of cities and towns strung along the coast of the Gulf of Oman, which is known locally as the “Capital Area” or the “Muscat Municipality.” These towns are sandwiched between the sea to the north and a very rocky, primeval-looking range of barren mountains to the south.
