Shisr has little of note except that it is possibly built on the ancient site of an old caravan post that some have identified as legendary Ubar. The equally legendary Empty Quarter beckons beyond. Ask tour companies in Salalah about overnight camping trips to the edge of these famous sands from the settlement of Al Hashman, an hour's rough ride from Shisr along a badly weathered unsealed track. The attempts at farming in the area quickly peter out beyond Shisr.
