I have visited Salalah in 2013. it was a refreshing trip. Though Salalah is a small city that's why its peaceful and surrounded with beautiful ocean on on side and mountains which turn green from August to September on the other side. My trip for Prophet Ayub's tomb started around 1 in afternoon, Because of the peak season for tourists... More

Tombs of ancient saints are always in doubt. That Job has other potential tombs in Syira and Turkey does nothing to diminish the importance of this holy place for the people around here. Particularly interesting are the prayer spaces outside which were originally oriented toward Jerusalem, but now have prayer carpets facing toward Mecca. Inside, there are plenty of signs... More

The place location and its spiritual value are great, unfortunately the place and surrounding area needs further care especially with the increasing number of local visitors and tourists especially during the seasons. Decency in clothing for both males and females are appreciated.

It is really nice to have a trip to Ittin during drizzling and fog (maximum care to be taken while driving during fog). During fog, visibility will be less. To enjoy the greenery from the hill top, journey to be taken place during a clear weather. Both are different experiences.

But actually the drive there and out towards the canyons in back wins the day but you you will need a 4 wheel drive to snake down the dirt road to the deserted wadis below except for camels.
