The Nation’s Accelerated Development
The United Nations' "2010 Human Development Report" placed the Sultanate of Oman in first place among 135 countries, measuring the greatest degree of progress made in the last 40 years.
Particularly remarkable is the rapid development in the fields of education, health, infrastructure and the primary role of women in society.
Georg Popp and Juma al-Maskari
What makes this travel guide so special? This book is a product of the long-term personal friendship between the authors, Mr Georg Popp and Mr Juma Al-Maskari and their continuing fascination with the Sultanate of Oman. Combining their insights from European and Omani perspectives, they have produced a guide which is as much about culture and history as it is a practical guide for planning your itinerary.
