Salalah is located on the southern coast of Oman, on the Indian Ocean. It is the main town in the region and the mountains surrounding it turn emerald green in the summer. Salalah owes part of its fame to the Frankincense trees that grow here and in all of Oman; Haffa Souq is the best place to buy the aromatic resin.
