Muscat Daily - - NATION -

Mus­cat - The Min­istry of Tourism (MoT) con­tin­ues its en­deav­our to main­tain, de­velop and up­grade tourism ser­vices in the Dho­far gov­er­norate dur­ing the kha­reef sea­son.

One of the most im­por­tant ser­vices be­ing pro­vided for vis­i­tors and tourists to Salalah this year is self-clean­ing toi­lets that have been in­stalled at a num­ber of tourist at­trac­tions in the gov­er­norate, stated a press re­lease.

In pay­ing sig­nif­i­cant at­ten­tion to en­hanc­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal tourism the min­istry wants to en­sure tourists and vis­i­tors en­joy an ideal ex­pe­ri­ence in all as­pects on their visit to the Dho­far re­gion, while also en­sur­ing that they keep the tourist at­trac­tions clean and hy­gienic.

In the first phase, ten self­clean­ing toi­lets have been in­stalled in dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions such as Al Saadah walk­way, Al Haffa Souq, Al Salam Street, the Fish Mar­ket, Al Ri­bat Street, and Salalah Tourism Fes­ti­val park­ing lots.

The toi­lets have au­to­matic doors that can be set for a cer­tain open­ing and clos­ing time, with the stan­dard tim­ing be­ing 15 min­utes. An Ital­ian com­pany has de­signed and main­tains the op­er­a­tion of the toi­lets us­ing the lat­est tech­nol­ogy.

An­other health and san­i­ta­tion fa­cil­ity pro­vided by the min­istry in the Dho­far gov­er­norate is the tem­po­rary mo­bile toi­let. Such toi­lets have been in­stalled at sev­eral lo­ca­tions across the re­gion.

The min­istry has also worked on de­vel­op­ing Al Da­ha­reez beach which is a pop­u­lar des­ti­na­tion for vis­i­tors and tourists, by adding a num­ber of ser­vices in or­der to meet the ex­pec­ta­tions of the grow­ing num­ber of vis­i­tors.

Set near the sandy beach and sur­rounded by the co­conut trees, the min­istry has re­cently con­structed a park that at­tracts cit­i­zens as well as vis­i­tors.

Not just this, the min­istry is also work­ing on adding two open as well as shaded yards for events, so­cial cel­e­bra­tions and BBQ gath­er­ings, a walk­way along the beach, new toi­lets, park­ing lots, and a wash­ing area near the beach. The place is to be de­signed by Golden Tri­an­gle En­gi­neer­ing Con­sul­tancy and will be built to re­flect an Omani am­bi­ence.
