Living in Oman
An Arab country, Oman is situated in Western Asia on the southeast coast of the Arabian Peninsula, which is considered a subcontinent of Asia. It lies at the mouth of the Persian Gulf sharing bordered with the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Yemen. Islam is the official religion of Oman, with 85.9% of the 4 million inhabitants following the Ibadi Islamic school. Historically, Oman has held a strategic position and in the 17th century challenged both Britain and Portugal to control over the Persian Gulf; it eventually lost its power and became under the influence of Britain. In comparison to the rest of the region, Oman has tried to diversify its economy, but oil exports account for 61% of exports with a further 12% being natural gas exports. With oil losing its value since 1998, Oman is actively attempting to diversify, and tourism is beginning to grow. There are popular cultural festivals such as the Khareef Festival, which attract tourists alongside the lush mountains and attractive coastlines in the country. Lonely Planet named the capital city of Muscat the second-best city to visit in 2012 and it has also been named Capital of Arab Tourism in 2012. Tourists may look out for the traditional dress culture of Oman; the dishdasha is a collarless, ankle length gown with long sleeves, often in a white colour and is the male national dress. The women wear colourful national costumes full of embroidery and decoration, often reflecting the tradition of a tribe, though this costume is mainly saved for special occasions.
