Al Husn Souq

Market in Salalah

Head for this souq to rub shoulders with the jovial Dhofari people who have been assembling in this spot, albeit under different awnings, for centuries. The souq, spread over a number of alleyways next to the sultan’s palace, flaps with colourful cotton headdresses, smokes with aromatic frankincense and sparkles with imitation jewellery. Traditional ceramic incense burners and spices are on sale here.
