Why visit Oman
Oman is a sultanate located in the Asian continent, it faces the Arabian Sea to the south-east and the Oman Gulf to the north-east.
Its territory is mainly characterized by deserts and mountains, that create natural barriers to its borders, but also plains and wide sweeps of dunes which form amazing landscapes, even if they do not host many vegetable species because of the drought, the strong irradiation and the unexpected variation of the temperature range. Therefore, the vegetation is divided into two main categories: the “rain plants” and the “water-retaining plants”. Among those, the Boswellia plant, or in other words the incense plant, is very important for the local culture. Indeed, it is used during religious celebrations and to produce an essential oil, which has tonic and energetic effects and prevents infections to the respiratory system.
