Salalah Vacation Packages
Visitors commonly use Salalah as a jumping off point for further adventures. Oman is home to numerous wonderful cultural and natural attractions. Taqah, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the west, and Mirbat, 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the west of Salalah are good places to visit if you're keen on learning more about this region.
For a budget-friendly, outdoor experience that the whole family will enjoy, take the time to visit the region's popular open-air markets.
Have some fun in Oman's waterways by going boating or sailing.
Often, the most rewarding vacation moments can be found in local eating establishments. Fish and lamb are two of the key ingredients. Don't end your stay in Oman without sampling mashuai (spit-roasted kingfish) as well as maqbous (rice dish). And when you are ready for the final course, you can't go past lokhemat (balls of deep fried flour and yeast). Try a tea, an alcohol-free Oman drink that is very common in Oman.
Take note, if you are planning to be in Oman around the 18th of November, Birthday of Sultan Qaboos is widely celebrated at that time and banks, business and some attractions may have different opening hours to normal.
The closest major airport, Salalah Airport, is located in Salalah, 2 miles (3 kilometers) to the northeast of Salalah, a handy point to remember when planning your trip.
