    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nestled in the coconut groves on Salalah's south side is a cozy souq in the Al Hafah section of town. Here are textile shops, gold and silver souqs and probably best of all, perfumeries where you can find frankincense, and bokhur that will send your olfactory senses sailing. All the accountrements are available as well-burners and charcoal. There are several local cafe's serving up the best in local snacks and tidbits-mishkak, hummus, etc.

    Lulu Hypermarket: Newest, Biggest and Best

    by iwys Updated Apr 1, 2011
    Lulu Hypermarket

    The new Lulu Hypermarket opened in February 2011. It is, by far and away, the best place to do grocery shopping in Salalah. The ground floor is a supermarket with the finest selection of foodstuffs outside Muscat. This is a great place to buy fresh seafood, New Zealand meat and every imaginable type of fruit and veg from snake gourd to dragon fruit. The first floor sells clothes and electrical goods while the second floor is a food court.

    Lulu Shopping Center: Supermarket

    Lulu Shopping Center
    1 more image

    Lulu is a large shopping centre. The ground floor is a supermarket and the upper floor sells household goods, including electrical goods and crockery. It was, until 2011, the best supermaket in Salalah but now it has been superceded by the much bigger Lulu hypermarket. If you are looking for a shop close to the airport and city centre which sells imported goods, Lulu will suit you. It is also a good place to buy nuts and coffee beans. The bakery department is good too.

    Centrepoint

    Centrepoint is Salalah's only large, modern mall specializing in women's and men's fashions, as well as home decorations. It's a good place to buy fashionable clothes and shoes for all sizes. Even I can find clothes to fit me here and I'm 1.94 m tall!

    Fish, Meat & Vegetable Souk: Fresh Fish

    Salalah Fish Souk
    1 more image

    Salalah's fish, meat and vegetable souk is the best place to buy fresh fish. The meat is not so good, however.

    The most common fish on sale are hamour, kingfish, tuna and sardines. There are very few shellfish, just shrimps and, very occasionally, crabs.

    The souk is traditionally a male domain and more than 95% of the customers here are Omani men.

    K.M. Supermarket, Salalah

    K.M. supermarket is the main rival to Lulu. It is nearer to the city centre and has more car parking space. It seems to cater mainly to the Indian and Pakistani ex-pat community, and has a great selection of curry spices.
