Sana´ai weddings
Yemeni weddings have  unique customs – especially those of Sana’a, which are so for the wedding dress and shoes as well as the engagement ring. As for men,  they buy a large quantity of good quality qat to give away to of cloth that is still worn today, especially elder women in Sana’a's Old City.

The beauty of Socotra
Socotra is one of those “lost world” islands (separated from the world six million years ago) where intrepid travelers – particularly those seeking exotic nature and wildlife in a remote tropical setting – can go days on end without rubbing shoulders with that less -than-endangered species…tourists.

The beauty of Yemen
Yemen is a Treasure of ancient history, culture and traditions. It is a place of mystery with a proud and honorable heritage. It’s people are warm and friendly, welcoming to guests and of the most hospitable in the Arab world. We await your visit.
