Yemen's Beauty

Beautiful Sights in Yemen:
  • The Ancient Tombs in Sana'a: Tombs which date back to the Paleolithic era. These lands were inhabited by ancient civilizations and cultures before nearly 40,000 years.
  • Sand Dunes, Socotra Island: One of the most famous destinations and most impressive landscape formations.
  • Archer Beach, Socotra Island: White sandy beach with immense sand dunes. Warm and crystal clear water.
  • Bottle Trees, Socotra Island: Their typical shape allures the tourists to see the amazing wonder of God. The stem of these trees are very big, and it is thicker near the ground and thinner near the crown. The crown's branches have different leaves.

Traveling in Yemen

"The U.S. Department of State warns U.S. citizens of the high security threat level in Yemen due to terrorist activities and civil unrest."

"The Department urges U.S. citizens to defer travel to Yemen and those U.S. citizens currently living in Yemen to depart when you are able to safely do so."

"Terrorist organizations, including Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), continue to be active throughout Yemen. The U.S. government remains extremely concerned about possible attacks on U.S. citizens."

So...although there are beautiful sights to see in Yemen, it is currently not an appropriate place to travel to.
