Salalah city Tour
Salalah is the southern most country of Oman. This part of Oman has a different flavor then you would see in muscat. I recommend taking a city tour especially during the monsoon season as this is a city you do not want to being walking in!The only way around is by car and public transport is close to non existent. Walking will not get you far.
