Every day, the Arabian Sea, along the coastline of Salalah-Dhofar, is getting rougher. Fog is slowly crawling into the remains of the ruins of houses still standing along the Corniche around Hafa Suq. Houses before and after 1970, still show in a certain way their beauty. 23 of July, the same date when Sultan Qaboos started with the modernization of the country, the yearly Salalah Tourism Festival will start. Visitors will arrive at the new airport. Last year 431.105 people, mostly from the Gulf region, visited Dhofar during the Khareef.
