It is located in the heart of three other Arab countries. In the south-west, it shares borders with the Republic of Yemen, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to the west, and United Arab Emirates to the north.
The Omani people are very friendly and loving. Arabic is the main language of Oman however, English is spoken frequently.
