    Travelling to Yemen

    Today, travellers do not have the privilege of visiting, as the country is in crisis, with civil war taking a desperate toll on most of the population. Needless to say, it is not safe to travel there. Yemen is a difficult country to get around, but the rewards for the persevering visitor are an unforgettable experience, populated with very friendly and open hosts. Despite being adjacent to Saudi Arabia and on the same peninsula as the United Arab Emirates, Yemen is definitely a place apart. However, the country is embroiled in civil war and the situation on the ground continues to deteriorate.

    The impressive grand mosques that grace each Peninsula capital city are often open to non-Muslims. A mosque tour can be inspirational in terms of cultural insights.

    Is it safe to travel in Yemen?

    Anyone entering the country should try to keep up-to-date on the exact security situation of their intended destinations and be prepared to change plans if the situation mandates it. Terrorist groups continue to plot and conduct attacks in Yemen and may attack with little or no warning, targeting tourist locations, transportation hubs, markets/shopping malls, and local government facilities.

    Gay and Lesbian visitors are unlikely to encounter outright prejudice or harassment so long as they remain discreet. However, this may well change if you become involved with a local. Room sharing is generally not a problem (it will be assumed you’re economising). The public consumption of alcohol is punishable under Islamic law in Yemen. Tap water should be avoided. To stay safe, it is recommended to stick to the bottled variety.

    ATMs are rare in Yemen, if you want to find one you will want to look in the large cities as you there are almost none outside of them.
