Salalah Mini Guide
What can you Tell me About Salalah?
Salalah is Oman’s second city and has traditionally been the home of the Sultan until in 1970 when Sultan Qaboos al Said moved to Muscat on his accession. It’s rarely visited despite being a beautiful part of Oman and relied in the past and until this day, on the trade in frankincense. The area puts on an air of independence from Muscat as it is populated by tribes who have traditionally held a rivalry with those from the capital. Surprisingly for the Arabian Peninsula, the country suffers a heavy monsoon period.
How do I get Into Salalah?
Salalah has its own international airport which has three daily flights from Muscat
. The airport mainly takes flights from India
and the Arabian Peninsula and last year saw nearly half a million passengers use the airport. Plans are in place to expand Salalah Airport with the soon to be opened first phase expected to handle two million passengers, rising to nearly ten million when completed.
What Should I do in Salalah?
Most of the attractions are outside the city and the most popular is a drive along the coast road to Hasik where you’ll drive along towering cliffs, past pale powder sand beaches and beautiful blue seas. Another popular trip is to the Wadi Darbat where at all times of year the wadi is green and has flowing water. It’s at its best in the monsoon season with waterfalls gracing the landscape.
