(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) Salalah Tourism Festival 2015, a leading tourist event in Oman, is set to kick-start in the Omani city of Salalah in the second day of Eid Al-Fitr.

Speaking to KUNA on the occasion, Chairman of Dhofar Municipality and chief of the organizing committee Salim Ufait Al Shanfari said the festival will open by the end of July and last until September.

The festival, which features many economic, tourist and cultural activities, is part of the Khareef (monsoon) season that extends from June 21 to late September every year, he said.

Efforts are being exerted continuously in order to ensure a better and more attractive festival this year, Al Shanfari pointed out.


The event always reflects the loyalty and gratitude of the Omani people to their nation and promotes the Gulf nation's heritage, customs, tradition and arts, the chairman of the organizing committee added.

More than 1.8 million visitors often take part in the celebrations of the Salalah Tourism Festival annually and enjoy the unique climate characterized by light rain, mist, balmy weather, green-carpeted hills and the well-preserved culture and traditional lifestyle of Oman.
