The aromatic resin, Frankincense is the identity of Oman. The aroma and fragrance of it dominates the air in the country. You can find it everywhere, the streets, markets and even in the hotels. It is believed that before the discovery of oil in Oman, Frankincense happened to be the main wealth earner for the nation.
The city of Muscat goes a step ahead in glorifying Frankincense by hosting an illuminated Frankincense stove. The trees that grows Frankincense can live upto thousands of years and in Oman, they are found in and around Salalah, 600 miles south of Muscat. The desert of Salalah is another place to have some desert safari in the day time. Conquer the sand dunes now!
