Salalah's Light Park Shines as Tourist Destination This Khareef Season

The Light Park event in Salalah Public Park is a recreational destination organized by the Dhofar Municipality for this year's khareef season. It will remain open until August 31st.

The event will provide visitors with an array of enjoyable activities.

Ahmed bin Awad Al Rawas from the Department of Events and Awareness in Dhofar Municipality said: "The illuminated garden includes models and shapes of animals and plants in artistic design using three-dimensional techniques, while decorating them with lights to contribute to creating a wonderful atmosphere in the place."

Al Rawas added that the illuminated garden gives the place a distinctive atmosphere through the use of sound effects and simulating animal sounds, adding an extra touch of authenticity to the experience.

Dhofar 2023 activities are distributed in different locations, including: Salalah Gardens, Awqad, and Al Saada.

Khareef season ('Autumn' in Arabic) 2023 astronomically started on Wednesday, June 21st, in the Dhofar governorate of Oman and will last until September 21st.

It causes the lands to become covered in green, the hills to be surrounded by white fog, and light rain to drizzle almost 24 hours a day in Dhofar and its capital city Salalah.

This year's khareef tourism season has witnessed the influx of several visitors and tourists from inside and outside Oman. The number of visitors to the Khareef season in Dhofar last year was about 813,000, according to the National Centre for Statistics and Information.
