At the very eastern end of the Arabian Peninsula, on the promontory of Ras al Hadd, you will find a castle in the town of the same name, which is practically unvisited by tourists with period decorations. Definitely worth a short visit

Free tour of the castle

Unlike in Europe, there are guided tours and all exhibits freely available – probably not really stolen here.

A walk along the walls

The walls and bastions are also freely accessible, so it is worth the climb just because of the view
