Best Places to Shop in Salalah – For a One-Off Shopping Experience

There is nothing like experiencing a one-off shopping experience when vacationing in Salalah, the "perfume capital of the Middle East". Here are some great shopping places you can try out.


Haffa Souk

A journey to the exotic Middle East will never be satisfying if you do not include the Haffa Souk in your travel checklist. Popular as one of the busiest regional souks, the Haffa Souk features a flea market lined along winding streets. You will encounter many tourists looking to savour the authentic Omani culture and the way of life amidst the vibrant atmosphere in the souk. Considered as one of the oldest markets in the city of Salalah, the Haffa Souk is a great place if you are looking to shop for some peculiar items and even souvenirs. You can find a wonderful collection of figurines made of ceramic, jewellery, woollen clothes, kaftans and even handicrafts made of wood.


Lulu Shopping Centre

One of the most popular lines of supermarkets throughout the Middle East, the Lulu Shopping Centre is another great place to gather some wonderful goods. Featuring all types of items ranging from crockery items to electronics, the Lulu Shopping Centre is located less than 20 minutes from popular accommodation options the likes of Al Baleed Resort Salalah by Anantara. If you are planning to do some shopping on your tour, make sure to look for great Salalah hotel deals that fit your budget and are located close to several major shopping centres in the country.


Al Husn Souk

Famous for the bustling silver shops, the Al Husn Souk is another place you should pay a visit to when in Oman. With a great chance to bargain and gather some items for affordable prices, the souk also features incense holders and containers to store kohl. With world famous perfumeries and textile shops, the souk is also the epicentre for local businesses that have been operating since the olden days. You can even catch some dexterous goldsmiths at work when shopping in the souk while they offer products that are made-to-order as well. These products are made with such distinction and intricacy that you can enjoy them for years to come.


Centrepoint Shopping Mall

The Centrepoint Shopping Mall is a place to shop for high-end clothing brands, jewellery, accessories and even decorative items. You can even find some famous international fashion brands and their outlets inside the Centre Shopping Mall. And if you are looking to savour something in between your shopping sprees, you can go ahead and visit the food court that features many cuisines as well as a play zone with video games that little ones would love to enjoy. If you'd like a change from the various traditional places and experience something a little more modern, then this is the ideal place for you. Given the more exclusive nature of this emporium, it's an ideal place to obtain souvenirs for yourself as opposed to souvenirs for your friends.
