The Marine Hall displays the development of Oman’s rich marine history. You will see a complete history of the Maritime trade and ship building industry of Oman, with meticulously carved replicas of the ancient boats and ships of the Omani Maritime trade. Afterwards you will drive through lush green plantations of vegetables and fruits and make a brief stop to experience the locally grown fruits and vegetables at fruits and vegetable stalls. You will also visit the impressive Sultan Qaboos Mosque in central Salalah, built in 2009 to welcome thousands of worshippers. You will then see the official palace of His Majesty the Sultan (Al Husn Palace) and stroll through the old Haffah souk, famous for the sale of high- quality Frankincense & numerous other Dhofari traditional souvenirs.
