One of the largest sea ports in the Gulf, Frankincense has been produced here since ancient times and the scent of it lingers in the air wherever you go. Salalah is defined by its fragrances as much as its scenery - to the north, mountains, springs and waterfalls contrast with long stretches of beautiful palm-fringed white sandy beaches to the south – some of the most beautiful in the country. And in the interior, past the plantations of papaya, banana and coconut palms, the rolling red dunes of the Empty Desert await. Less than two hours’ flight from Muscat, Salalah is Oman’s second largest city and a year-round holiday destination offering a wide range of outdoor activities no matter the season. Explore the Frankincense Museum, shop for souvenirs at the Gold Souk and visit a local mountain-dwelling family to learn about their daily lives, culture and traditions.
