  • There are many things to do in Khasab even. The visit of about 45 minutes is instructive on the traditions and traditional trades. Do if you have a time to beat before embarking on the Fjords.

  • From Western or European perspective we have little knowledge of the importance of this region in the history of the global action of different fabrics, fruits, spices, etc. Then, one discovers as a fortress which here should defend, could keep acting in the course of centuries. Interesting and somehow the fantasy of the Orient to be touched.
