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.
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.
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, the summer residence of the Sultan, can only be admired from the outside.
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.
Salalah is famous for the plantations growing bananas, papayas, coconut and other vegetables. Next to the plantation these products are sold directly to the customer. Don't miss here the opportunity to try fresh coconut water or one of the tasty bananas. Our guide will also explain you the specialties about the plantation gardens in Salalah.
Dahariz beach is located close to Salalah where you can spend a wonderful time like a local between high coconut trees and the Indian Ocean. Next to the Dahariz beach you find the Dahariz Lagoon which is perfect for bird watching and highly recommended for the flamingo lovers among you.
