Salalah Road Trip - 30 Aug - 3 Sep 2017

4 posts in this topic

Planning a road trip to beautiful Salalah in Aug end to escape the UAE summer during upcoming Eid Al Adha break. Going to Salalah soon after the rainy season (July-Aug), is best treat you can give to your eyes and mind. Everything turns lush green during that time and looks like you are in some heavenly place. Apart from the endless natural beauty, Salalah also offer some interesting places to visit like anti-gravity point, boat rides, kayaking, visiting blowholes, waterfalls, exotic birds watching etc.

Just to beat the rush at border, hotels and salalah we will start one day earlier, which will give us enough rest and time to explore Salalah for 3 full days + 2 for road trip. Planning early will help in securing all rooms in one hotel for Carnity members and we might get a good deal in bulk booking, so please decide ASAP.

Tentative Travel plan:

  • Start: 30 Aug 2017 – 4 AM
  • Drive 1200 kms with 30 mins break every 200 kms
  • Reach Salalah: 30 Aug 2017 – 7 PM
  • Hotel check-in and relax
  • Salalah Places to visit: 31 Aug – 2 Sep 2017
  • Return: 3 Sep 2017 – 4 AM
  • Reach Dubai: 3 Sep 2017 – 7 PM

Level of drive: All are welcome
Type of Car: Any car is acceptable
Plan: Road trip + daily trip in Salalah after the lazy breakfast
What to bring along: Camera, music, lots of casual clothes, beach wear, smiles, stories, enthusiasm

Please list your name and mobile below and RSVP the calendar.
