Book a flight to Salalah and you'll find That Oman’s 'Second City' and capital of the Dhofar region has plenty to offer.Visitors flock to the town for its annual Khareef (monsoon) season, from June to August, when the weather is unseasonably cool for the Arabian Gulf region.
Fruit plantations, coconut-fringed beaches, bustling souqs and archaeological wonders are scattered across a landscape that is more tropical than desert.
So book a flight to Salalah with Qatar Airways and lose your heart to a city teeming with fun, character and warmth.
Sultan Qaboos' Palace and Grand Mosque will whet your appetite for Salalah’s numerous charms; you can always leave the archaeological digs behind and take to the ocean floor, with some of the best dive spots in the world.
Many people travel to Salalah for Scuba diving and snorkelling that are extremely popular in the city. There are plenty of dive centres here, and in Mirbat, which is about 70km to the east.
The annual Khareef Festival, from 15 July to 31 August, celebrates monsoon season and Dhofari culture. This colourful tradition is the perfect excuse to enjoy live music, entertainment and street food.
Pack your binoculars and visit Khawr Salalah, a beautiful lagoon in which you can indulge your ornithological bent, as you spot ospreys, flamingos and other migratory birds. Or take a leisurely stroll through the city's fruit plantations of bananas, papayas and coconuts, located near the corniche.
The wealth brought by the port has led to international restaurants springing up across Salalah. Almost everywhere you turn, you can find Thai, Indian, Chinese, and Arabic food. The city's buffet restaurants are the ideal place to sample local specialities such as hummus (chickpea dip) and shawarma (meat kebab).
For fine dining or a romantic meal, five-star hotels offer à la carte dining. There are very few restaurants outside the city, so if you plan on visiting attractions further afield, it is best to pack water and snacks for the journey.
Frankincense is the most popular purchase when you travel to Salalah. There are different grades of frankincense, which is sold as resin nuggets in Oman. Cost varies according to grade.
You will also find a wide selection of Omani perfumes and hand-crafted Dhofari-clay incense burners. For souvenirs and handicrafts, head for Salalah Handicraft Centre or Haffa Souq, where you will get to practice your bargaining skills.
Al-Husn Souq is the best place to mingle with locals and see traditional Omani hats being made. The colourful tangle of streets near the Sultan's Palace are filled with the aroma of frankincense, and it's easy to find handicrafts and hand-made jewellery here.
