    im taking a job with Shell Oil in Oman and i am not hearing good tales about the place. apparently, women needed accompanying by man in public or else could be arrested? is this true?

    Has anyone ever been there? Is it safe? Are there dress restrictions? What are the living conditions? Any information would be helpful. Thank you.

    When I travel to more exotic locales, I usually take a peek at the government travel advice sites, but if you want my humble opinion based on my own experience as a female traveler in the middle east is that most of you hear isn't quite the picture.

    I understand the anxieties expressed by many people, but fortunately I also understand that most of these fears are unfounded.

    What you'll get in places like Oman is quite possibly being hassled, but you won't have to worry about your personal security, but expect to be the object of great attention and even being prepositioned.
