Car Hire in Oman
The Sultanate of Oman may be just over the border from Dubai, but it could not be more different from its glitzy Middle Eastern neighbour. Oman blends constant sunshine with an air of ancient Arabian mystique and wraps it in magnificent desert scenery soaked in history. After all, Oman is associated with such legends as the Queen of Sheba, Alexander the Great, and Sinbad the Sailor. The country’s history and character remain largely intact, especially in the port capital, Muscat.
