According to what i see is that this place is one of the must-see places in Salalah which by itself explains the history of frankincense trading from many many years.

This UNESCO site is a wadi filled with frankincense trees. Apart from the sign at the car park there is no interpretive signage at all and there were no staff in attendance on the day we visited- it was a Saturday. If you look closely...More

The trail can be much more intresting to walk when it would be provided with information about what's there to see. Otherwise you just see some ruïnes and left and right an old brick. Although i understand that there's not much to see in Salalah,...More

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.

We know of frankincense from the Christmas story, of the wise men who came from the east, bearing gifts .... but not much more. The history, and the production are really interesting.

This is another place in Salalah which can be skipped if we have visited the Museum of Frankincense land. Apart from few more trees in a bigger location, there is nothing special about this place. I suggest not to plan for this place but see...More
