Nice place where you can go around walking or by golf carts. After that you can take a tour in the electrical boat around the historical city. The picture attached is for a new resturant on the side of the Baleed

It is interesting to see how the tree grows and how they harvest the frankincense. The views through the mountains and windy roads are fantastic. Camels abound, very friendly and clean!

I loved Oman and hope to return for a longer trip. I travelled by long distance bus and hired a car in Salalah.

On your way to the Empty Quarter you should not miss to see the park with frankincense trees. My guide explained how incense comes from the tree and it's different qualities. This is an Unescorted site and I think they should improve the visit to...More
