The climate in Yemen is ever hot hence favorable for enjoying holidays because rains rarely appear in this state. Yemen is also blessed with large coastal beaches, and it has mountains that create a temperate climate to regions near them. Yemen is an Arabian country located at the southern side of the Arabian Peninsula, and it neighbors Arabia and Saudi Arabia. The capital city of Yemen is Sana’a, and its climate is temperate thanks to its high altitude. There are four ways of getting into Yemen from another country. There are many international flights that take place between the capital city of Sana’a and the rest parts of the world. These airlines are: Air Arabia, Yemenian Airlines, Lufthansa Airlines, Turkish Airlines, Qatar Airlines, Royal Jordanian Airlines and Syrian Airlines. The Air Arabia connects Sana’a to Sharjah, Yemenia from Europe and Cairo, Turkish Airlines from Istanbul, Qatar Airlines from Doha, the Royal Jordanian Airlines from Amman, and Syrian Airlines from Syria. There are two borders using private car transport. These are the border from Oman and Saudi Arabia. However, if you are afraid of your fuel finishing up due to the design of your vehicle, you can opt for available public buses in Salalah, but if you are a tourist and you would like to travel to the Indian Ocean coast you would be required to use an airplane to reach the coast since visitors are not allowed top travel from the Eastern border of Yemen to the west where Yemen’s coast of the Indian Ocean is situated. To explore the coastal feel, then board a passenger ferry in Djibouti, Ethiopia to arrive at any of the ports of Yemen.
Accommodation in Yemen is available in the cities but outside the city, the tourist rooms are equipped with only a few basic facilities.

Alcohol is prohibited to Muslims, but non-Muslims can take alcohol and carry alcohol anywhere they move within Yemen.
