These ruins have been well-restored to get a good picture of a frankincense trading port town of about a thousand years ago. Some signage and a small information center on site. See Khor Rori while you're there.

Another interesting place! :)) You can see ruins of this city and river delta. I was lucky because I saw many camels here. The museum is small but definitely worth a visit.:) Nice walk and I definitely recommend. :))

Wadi meets the sea at this place overlooked by the ancient ruins dating back to BC. The place has unique beauty of its own. Lots of camels and birds around.
