The museum hosts an impressive collection about the archaeological and maritime history of Oman.

These ruins of Al Balid were once visited by Ibn Batuta and Marco Polo, describing it as a beautiful, large and noble city.

On the way to the mosque you can enjoy the green plantation of Salalah lined with coconut and banana trees. Soon it’ll be time to enjoy a scenic drive to the Gold souk which offers modern and olden style Dhofari ornaments.

Then proceed to Haffah souk which is very attractive with its small shops lined with straight piles of incense boxes and clay incense burners colorfully decorated with traditional patterns and bags of incense crystals.  Also on your way to Haffah Souk you can see some typical Dhofari houses with caravan windows and doors. Shop around for whatever catches your eye before enjoying a comfortable ride back to your hotel.
