OMAN, PALM GROVE IN THE MIDDLE OF WADIS

OMAN, PALM GROVE IN THE MIDDLE OF WADIS (55 photos) Send this reportage Send this reportage
Only few people can localize Oman on a map. Fortunately, the Oman Sea and the Oman Golf are here to remind us that this place does exist, facing Iran and surrounded by Yemen and the Emirates. Historically, its long coast was the place where eastern companies used to get fresh supplies and refuel their boats between Asia and Africa. Today, Oman is opening its borders to tourists. However, business used to have an other nature. In this country, trading is an old tradition.

The contrasts of the landscape are the richness of the place. Travelers can walk to the Wadis to enjoy dunes. Later on, they can enjoy a bath in a swimming pool full with natural water or chilling under a palm tree shadow. They can end their day by diving in the Oman sea.

However, this country can not by sum up by this ideal portrait. Along the coasts, there is a lot fishermen. Most of them are what we call immigrant workers. Indeed, we have to keep in mind that about 75% of the population are immigrants. And as long as there is work,their integration seems to work.

An other feature of this country is the large turtles population. They come on the coast to reproduce. The Ras el Jounaïz Centre aims to protect this species. It has an intense activity at night, when turtles comes to bury their eggs in the sand.
