Khareef & Buses to Salalah

by victorwkf

Based on experience, normally when does the Khareef monsoon starts in Salalah? When can one expect to see the green sceneries?

This is because I may be at Dubai or Abu Dhabi around 11-12 June, and is thinking of visiting Salalah if the Khareef has started and the green sceneries can be seen.

Also, are there buses that travel from Dubai or Abu Dhabi to Salalah on a regular basis?

Regards
Victor

Monsoon season in Salalah is from June- Sep, but it can be unpredicatable. Suggest that you try Google weather nearer to the time that you will be there.

Hi,

The Khareef season starts on 15th july uptill 31st aug. But sometimes July doesnt see much rain. Best to go in 1st week of August. you will see the greenary & water falls as well.

Buses to Salalah are there from Muscat quite regularly, dont have idea from Abudhabi/ Dubai.

Travel Tips for Salalah

Plantations

by iwys

The lush plantations of coconut palms, bananas and papayas give Salalah's coastal strip a tropical appearance, which sets it apart from the rest of the Middle East. This is definitely one of my favourite things about the place.

Hotels in Salalah during the Khareef Season

by JohnniOmani

During the khareef (monsoon season) all accommodation in Salalah is heavily booked, so you will need to organize your stay well in advance to be sure you get a room. Prices during this time of the year a considerable amount higher and the city is buzzing with foreign and local holiday makers. You can camp near Salalah and you also rent or buy camping gear in the city center.

Money & Currency

by amna_alshamsi

The local currency is called the Omani Rial, which is often seen written as RO or OR. It is divided into 1000 baiza (bz). Notes come in the following sizes:

100bz; 200bz; 250bz (1/4 rial); RO 1/2; RO 1; RO 5; RO 10; RO 20; RO 50

Coins: 5bz; 10bz; 25bz; 50bz

Cash is the preferred method of payment, but most of the large shops will take major credit cards. Personal cheques are rarely accepted. Currency can be exchanged in the hotels, banks and exchange houses. Take your passport for ID purposes when exchanging money or cashing Traveller's Cheques.

Most of the banks have Automated Teller Machines (ATM) which will accept cards such as VISA, American Express, MasterCard, Cirrus and Global Access.

Banks are open from 8.00am to 12.00pm, Saturday to Wednesday, and 8.00am to 11.30am on Thursday. Transfers of money are easy to arrange as the Omani Rial is freely convertible and there are no controls governing its exchange.

Fruit

by TomorrowsAngel

Salalah has a real tropical feel. There are banana and coconut plantatins with camels wandering through them - sometimes having a wee nap in the shade. There are roadside fruit stalls located by the plantatins between town and the souks.
You can buy all kinds of fruit: fresh coconuts, bananas, mangoes, citrus fruit and other fruits.

Fruit Stalls

by iwys

Salalah's fruit stalls are famous in Oman. They line the roadsides in the coastal strip, especially Sultan Qaboos Street in the Dahariz district. They sell the produce of the plantations, i.e. coconuts, bananas and papayas. The stallholders will cut open coconuts so you can drink the fresh juice with a straw.

The fruit is very cheap, for example, a kilo of bananas costs from OR 0.2 to OR 0.3.
