Probably cultural differences occur between the people in the larger Arabian Peninsula, ranging from Saudi to Oman. However, relatively this is a uniform area. Through thousands of years of equal circumstances the inhabitants were formed and shaped further over time towards a unique sort of people. Standing on the shoulders of the giants before us we can look far and understand; and work on our way of communicating and behaviour. For the respectful and long lasting cooperation we are after.
