Salalah hotels await Khareef thrill

Monsoon is hanging everywhere on the Salalah mountains for more than two weeks now.
Its clear impact can be seen in the city in terms of nice weather, off and on normal to heavy drizzling and big umbrellas put up everywhere in front of numerous coffee shops spread over all parts of the city.
But for the hoteliers in Salalah something is missing amid these niceties. That something lies in the number of visitors this time around.
“Occupancy is there, demand is there, enquiries are on for the last week of July and whole of August, but spoiled by the Khareef demand we hoteliers probably are in the habit of boasting our ‘full occupancy’ tag. That is missing,” said a city-based hotel manager. >>

The charm of Fanja Souq

Fanja is just about 25 kilometres from Muscat. It is a historical town renowned for its hot springs, forts and watch towers. But other than the natural beauty of the place, one of its top attractions is its traditional souq.
The turn on the road that indicates the direction of the souq takes you on a picturesque road with the Sultan Qaboos Mosque of Fanja to the left a hard reference point to miss.
Once you get to the area, a sudden splash of colour and the rush of different activities will definitely get your attention. The souq is a row of shops filled with merchandise depending on the interest of the shop owners. The souq itself is under the supervision of the Municipality. It takes a while to register the variety of products that are on display.
Fanja is located in the Wilayat of Bidbid, and is the first town you’ll pass by if one wants to explore the Al Dakhiliya Governorate. The Fanja Souq, however, has products from different parts of Oman.
Yaqoob al Farsi was preparing for another typical day when Oman Observer team arrived to explore the souq. The summer is in its full swing but the shoppers to the souq continue to drive in not minding the hot temperature. There is plenty of parking area for the vehicles to park.
One of the first products you’d notice are the potteries. They vary in shapes and sizes and depending on their purpose. There are traditional clay pots to store drinking water, there are ceramic garden pots for plants and many others. >>
