Y is for Yemen 🇾🇪 How good and interesting does Yemen look?! It's not one I have ever considered but now I am intriguied. Yemen is a country at the southern end of the Arabian Peninsula. Yemen is the second-largest Arab sovereign state in the peninsula, occupying 527,970 square kilometres. The coastline stretches for about 2,000 km.
Yemen claims to be the ancient homeland of the Queen of Sheba. Her dealings with the Jewish king Solomon are mentioned in the Bible and the Qur’an. Yemenis take much pride in their wedding traditions. An average wedding feast lasts 21 days. Socotra island is also very famous destination for the tourists, and also famous as the house to other endemic tree spot- The bottle trees. They grow on the rocky terrains. The stem of these trees are huge, and it is thicker near the ground and thinner near the crown. The crown itself consists of a couple of branches in most cases, and these branches are embraced by different leaves. The Bottle Trees are really captivating sights to witness during your trekking trip to the rocky terrains of Socotra Island. There are also incredible towns built into and on hillsides which you can see in the pictures.
To visit you need to get a visa before travel and see the restrictions the country implement.
