Tourists Flock to Oman for Khareef Season

Oman’s Ministry of Tourism revealed that there was a large turnout of tourists visiting the Sultanate in time for the Khareef season, which takes place every year from June to early September.

The latest report from the National Centre for Statistics and Information noted the number of tourists visiting Dhofar reached 52,017 between June 21 and July 03 an increase of 35.4 percent, as compared to the same period in 2017 which recorded 38,404. Dhofar, and its city Salalah, remains a highly preferred destination during this period because of its cool refreshing weather.

One of the highlights of the period is its annual Khareef Festival, which features traditional performances, stalls selling local handicrafts and local Omani culinary offerings.
