    Yes, my friend, this area in the south of Oman, is the only spot where the beauty of this is the nature of the Arab Gulf states in temperature in this area as low as 12 degrees during the summer as the rest of the Arabian Gulf and the rest of the Sultanate of Oman are the high temperatures of more than 35 degrees

    This is an area away from the capital of Muscat, approximately 1000 km

    Salalah, despite lying close to the Arabian desert, enjoys a tropical climate through most of the year. Temperatures are very hot in the summer soaring up to 40 degrees but in winter can fall down to 22 degrees. The town is subjected to the south-west monsoons. This period (late June to early September) is known as the khareef season. Visitors from across the Persian Gulf flock to Salalah to enjoy the monsoon and avoid the harsh heat faced by the rest of the region during the same period. Also in this period, the town's population nearly doubles and various fairs are organized, such as the Khareef Festival at Ittin.

    Salalah has an airport, mainly catering to domestic flights from Muscat and some regional cities such as Kuwait, Dubai, and Doha. Seasonly flights, some from as far away as Sweden, can be seen though during the Khareef season, the peak of the tourist season. Oman Air currently operates several daily flights to Salalah Airport from Muscat. Air India Express operates 3 weekly flights to Kerala, India, on Wednesday and Sunday to Calicut via Cochin and on Friday to Trivandrum via Cochin. Al Jazeera Airways operates seasonal flights to Dubai via Kuwait

    The city of Salalah is known as the "perfume capital of Arabia".The city is a popular destination for tourism due to the natural attractions of the nearby mountains and abundant stands of frankincense trees lining mountain wadi courses. Around the city and into the mountains the countryside is lush and green during the monsoon period with the vegetation supporting herds of cattle. The climate supports wildlife often more commonly associated with East Africa, such as leopards and hyenas.

    The beaches and coastline are also major attractions for scuba diving and bird watching.

    Salalah is a city of antiquity, boasting both the ruins of the fortified town Sumharam, an important port from 100 BC AD 400, and the alleged resting place of Job (Arabic "Ayoub") in nearby Jabal Gadu. It is also the alleged resting place of Nabi Imranfather of Hazrat Maryam. Modern Oman is also represented by the Port of Salalah, located approximately 15 km to the southwest of the city. The strategic location of this port has made it one of the major entry points to India, the Middle East, and Africa.
