ADVENTURE TRAVEL HOLIDAYS IN DHOFAR, OMAN

Luxury Holidays in Salalah

The town of Salalah, known as the "perfume capital of Arabia", is situated in the Dhofar region, in the southern part of Oman.
 
This area is the only one directly exposed to the South East monsoon which creates an ideal micro-climate for lush green vegetation, spectacular waterfalls that make it a real tropical paradise, in contrasts with the neighboring barren Empty Quarter Desert. Baobab trees, coconut cultivation, all the vegetation remind the African one.
 
Salalah represents the perfect balance of a glorious past and the modernity splendor: the ruins witness to its past prosperity, whereas every street of its modern part reflects the progress and the achievements of Oman. The vestiges of past ages enchant tourists and bring them back to another time. There are three archeological sites and traces of an ancient wall and fort.
 
Salalah has not only picturesque ruins to offer: the natural attractions of the nearby mountains and abundant stands off ranking cense trees, many landscaped gardens and parks, make the city a favoured resort for tourists.
