Yemen Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 26%, Yemen has faced political turmoil and civil strife, which doesn't exactly make for an inviting environment and has kept most PlanetHoppers! away - other than the diehard adventure seekers. This is a real shame as Yemen has a lot to offer from amazing cultural sites, such as the cliff city of Al Hajjarah, to the UNESCO-listed cities of Shibam, Sana'a and Zabid.

The greatest hope is the uncertainty surrounding Yemen will achieve some level of tranquility soon, so it can be added back onto any PlanetHopper's! wishlist.
