Incentive Travel in Oman: Salalah Summer Escapes

In the summer, when sweltering heat envelopes the Middle East, the monsoons sweep across Asia. By the time they reach Oman, they spray a gentle cooling mist across Salalah in Oman's southern Dhofar region. It's known as Al-Khareef season when Salalah, "The Garden City". , is cool, comfortable and lush. Coconut palm trees shade pristine beaches. It's the perfect time to schedule incentive travel, business meetings, conferences, and corporate retreats.
