I have visited the Souq previously, the shops have increased but the quality has not improved much. Apart from Frankincense in many different varieties& and some oils, there is not much worth the trip. It is disappointing in all honestly if you are looking for...More

Nice to visit this old Souq, it is a good place to buy unique items related to Salalah or Oman. It has resturant also. The main issue is availability of clean toilets and parking.
