How dangerous is Sana'a nowadays?  (1 Answer)

My family goes on holiday to Sana'a almost every year due to a lot of my relatives and immediate family living there. But I'm very worried because of hearing all the news about Yemen, which is getting much worse nowadays, after Houthis and Dammaj and Al-Qaeda. But how dangerous is it whilst being there currently? Should I be worried?

safety january 2010  (10 Answers)

I will visit Yemen for a few days in the middle of this month (January 2010) I stayed in Sana'a exactly a year ago (and visited the surrounding villages in the Haraz mountains), but due to resent changes in the political climate, and the fact I am a Norwegian journalist, what precautions should I take? Should I wear an abaya and hijab this time? What airline and hotel would be 'safe' (went by Yemeni Air last time and stayed in Burj Al Salam. Great) How about travelling by car south of Sana'a? Pls advice. Shukran!

Visiting Sanaa in 2010  (8 Answers)

Hi all… Just signed up as a member of virtual tourist and this is my first post :-)

I am planning to visit Sann'a in Yemen next February, travelling on my own via Dubai (ex-UK with Emirates). My plan is to spend a few nights in Sana'a (Old Town) and I have no intention of visiting other parts of Yemen. I know that Yemen has an image for not being a safe country to visit, mostly due to threat of terrorism in the northern Sa'ada region. I have visited the UK's FCO website, Yemen is included in the "against all travel to parts of the country" category, along with a dozen of other countries which also includes Thailand and Italy (!).

Although I have seen lots of negative news about terrorist threats in Yemen - one of the most recent being a group of Korean nationalities being attacked near Sana'a - I wonder if there is any members who are currently living or visited the city recently? Would you be able to let me know your experience, or your impression with regards to safety in Sana'a, has the whole terrorist threat thing been exaggerated?

Many Thanks in advance.
