9.지 리 - Oman is bordered to the west by the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and the Republic of Yemen. The
Musandam Peninsula forms a coastal enclave on the Strait of Hormuz. The 2700km (1700 miles) of coastline are surrounded
by the Arabian and Indian Seas. The Hajir Mountains divide the land stretching from the Musandam Peninsula to the
southeast. To the west lies the fertile narrow plain of the Batinah coast dominated by the Jebel Akhdar. Dhofar in the south,
which is divided from the north by a desert, has a coastal plain beyond which are mountains. Out to sea are the Kuria Muria
Islands. The Batinah coast is inhabited by descendants of Asian merchants, Baluchi traders and other Arab nationals, who are
more aware of the outside world than the tribesmen of the interior and mountains. Along the coast at Muscat and Matrah,
Arab traditions remain strong despite increasing Western influence. In the southern capital of Salalah are many black Omanis
descended mainly from former slaves, whereas the interior is populated by the nomadic Bedus (Bedouin).
