The rich history, stunning landscape, pristine beaches, Islamic culture and unmatched hospitality makes Oman a must-visit destination and there’s nothing that turns Oman into a stunning paradise quite like khareef season in Salalah (meaning 'autumn' in Arabic). The land is covered in green and the hills are surrounded by a white fog, while a light rain drizzles almost 24 hours a day. Cool, refreshing weather prevails in Salalah, which attracts visitors from around the world. To celebrate, Omanis host the annual Salalah Tourism Festival which features cultural performances alongside stalls selling local handicrafts and traditional food. All of this makes for an amazing weekend escape to discover the wonders of Salalah!
