Oman is a state on the Arabian Peninsula, which has a desert, oases in the beds of dried-up rivers and long strips of beaches on the coast of the Arabian Sea, as well as the Persian and Oman Gulfs. In the sandy desert of Ramlat el Wahiba, Bedouins live among the dunes. The capital of Oman is located in the port city of Muscat. It is home to the modern Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque and the old Matrah quarter with its labyrinthine bazaar and lively fish market.
