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.

Frankincense, sometimes referred to as olibanum, is a common type of essential oil used in aromatherapy that can offer a variety of health benefits: helping relieve chronic stress and anxiety, reducing pain and inflammation, boosting immunity and even fighting cancer.

To be really honest, I would have skipped this if I knew it before. The museum is okay, but not as thrilling, and the trail itself doesn't really give you the right feeling. It's just a little walk you're doing, without experiencing the way it...More
