Yemen


Mountain fortress of Shihara

After more upsets than a first-time traveller to India, Yemen is developing a calm and collected air. Although the country is rapidly modernising, you'll find plenty of old-style Arabia - from spicy souqs to presumptuous palaces - wherever you travel.

The country is covered in ancient skyscrapers - eight-storey buildings made from stone and mud - where people live on top of their animals and the views are spectacular. You'll also see mind-blowing mosques, sultans' palaces and villages perched on top of remote mountains.
