Salalah City

Salalah City receives its visitors with large vistas of grass and water mist, opening its arms to them and spreading the shade of its palm trees (locally called Coconut). The smell of frankincense wafts through the city. This is the same frankincense that has been portrayed on the walls of ancient Pharaonic temples ever since Hatshepsut journeyed to Oman’s fertile lands. Salalah is famous for its lights that sparkle through the night’s lyrical breezes and the day’s sun rays beating down on the waves that dance in celebration of Salalah’s eternal spring.
