Living in Salalah
Oman is a welcoming, politically stable and friendly country and nowhere more so than in Salalah on the Southern coast. Access to a huge variety of foods and other goods is relatively easy and Muscat is only an hour’s flight away. Salalah is a friendly and welcoming place in which to live with incredible scenery, wonderful beaches, a rich culture and a sunny climate that enables a wide range of water & land activities to be pursued.
It is well situated for travel to other locations around the world and has a variety of local expat groups, sporting teams and adventures for those inclined to participate. Oman is hot and humid in the Coastal areas and hot and dry in the interior except for the higher mountains, which enjoy a moderate climate throughout the year. Rainfall is generally light and irregular in Salalah except for the summer months when it bursts into vibrant life as the monsoon rains arrive - expect the days to be slightly cooler.
