Experience the scenic beauty, diverse terrain and ancient history of Salalah during this orientation tour of the Garden City, and its surrounding areas.

Depart the pier for the drive to East Salalah to see the contrast between the lush vegetation of the Garden City and the surrounding desert landscape. Your tour begins with a visit to Taqa. Camels may be seen roaming along the roadside on the approach to this old fishing village. Upon arrival in Taqa, you will visit an interesting fort and view typical houses belonging to the local fishermen. The elegant white stones used in the construction of Taqa's homes are heat-resistant, and can be found nearby.

Next, you will continue on to Khor Rouri Creek, site of the city ruins of Samhuram, ancient capital of Arabia's exotic frankincense trade. Excavations at the site have produced evidence of an ancient city with trade links by sea to Far Eastern destinations, and even distant Greece. From here, a photo stop will be made at the tomb of Prophet Mohammed Bin Ali, who died in 1135 AD. Both the twin-domed structure and tomb are fine examples of medieval architecture.

Please note: The order of the visits may vary. Due to local customs, appropriate dress is required; shorts, beachwear, and sleeveless shirts and blouses will not be permitted on this tour. This tour involves several steps that must be negotiated to access the Taqa Fort and Samhuram archaeological site.
