About Yemen

Located in the heart of the Arabian Peninsula, Yemen is a country where ancient traditions and modern life coexist in harmony. 

Yemen boasts a diverse cultural heritage that spans millennia: from the bustling markets of the capital Sanaa, where you can bargain for exquisite handicrafts, to the melodies of traditional Yemeni music.

Yemen is often called the "Arabian Felix" (Happy Arabia) due to its lush landscapes and historical significance. It is home to the ancient city of Shibam, known as the "Manhattan of the Desert" for its stunning clay skyscrapers, and the legendary Queen of Sheba, who once ruled the land. 

Yemen's natural beauty is a testament to the wonders of the natural world. From the dramatic landscapes of the Socotra Archipelago, home to unique dragon's blood trees, to the serene beaches along the Red and Arabian Seas, Yemen is a paradise for nature lovers and adventurers.

Visit Yemen and savor the flavors of the national cuisine, where aromatic spices and bold flavors combine to create a culinary journey unlike any other. Discover traditional dishes like mandi and salah and learn how to recreate them in your own kitchen.
