Capital of Dhofar

There is a palace here on the beach where sultan Said lived from 1958 until 1970. Inland to the west is the old town where you will find dilapidated houses. They used to be large merchant houses with ornate shutters.

There is a souq, but nothing like the one in Muscat.

We docked at Salalah known for frankincense trade
Going there was the worst decision we made.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:I can't think of any.
  • Cons:As somebody on the cruise said "Stay on the ship."
  • In a nutshell:Not at all appetizing.
