Itinerary

Sultan Qaboos Mosque Salalah
Sultan Qaboos Mosque Salalah

The Sultan Qaboos Mosque in Salalah is by far not as big as its counterpart in Muscat, in which 20.000 believers find place - here there are only 3.200 people. Its interior does not look so overloaded, but rather radiates an airy lightness thanks to the bright, friendly colors. The brightly painted windows, which let in a lot of natural light, also contribute to this, creating an inviting atmosphere that invites you to pause and linger. The separate prayer room for the women - the Ladies Prayer Hall - is located on the north side of the mosque, which was inaugurated in 2009.

Al Nahdah Tower
Al Nahdah Tower

The tower has 4 sides, all of which feature a beautifully designed clock. In the time before every resident of Salalah had a mobile phone, the clock served as the central timekeeper of the place. The sight is located on a roundabout that connects the busy Ar-Rubat and Al-Matar road.

Al Hosn Souq
Al Hosn Souq

The tour continues with the visit of the Souq, a traditional market where you can experience the friendly atmosphere and have the chance to buy traditional perfumes, frankincense, dresses or souvenirs for your loved ones.

Al Hosn Palace

Al-Hosn Palace, the summer residence of the Sultan, can only be admired from the outside.

Museum of Frankincense Land

On the way to the The Frankincense Land Museum you will have the chance to buy some fresh fruit or a coconut drink at the huts besides to the plantation farms. The museum is besides the Al Baleed Archaelogical Park and divided into six sections: the Geography of Oman, Oman in Ancient Times, the Land of Frankincense, Islamization of the People of Oman, Chapters of Omani History and the Renaissance of Oman.

    Beautiful City Tour

    Me and my friend really enjoyed the city tour. We took some amazing pictures and my highlight was the mosque and the plantations where we tried one of the delicious coconuts.

    Thank you!

    Me and my wife booked the Salalah City Tour and the Salalah East Tour im September this year. We can highly recommend to visit Salalah in September because the spring waters are all still carrying water because of Khareef season. We saw everything we wanted and our guide Ali showed us as well Ayn Khoor which was not included in the itinerary. Thanks a lot and we will definitely come back!
