Scent of Arabia

Yemen is a country which anchors you to reality but Jiblah is a place extracted from Arabian Nights. It has retained its antique atmosphere, even in the people's way of life.

Tomb of Queen Arwa

This is one of the few mosques in Yemen which a non-Muslim can visit. The imam will hover about you like a hawk chewing qat until you give him some money. Pictures are allowed but respect for the place is important. After all Queen Arwa was a remarkable woman who reigned and ruled Yemen for a number of years, hundreds of years ago.

Museum of Queen Arwa

There isn't much to see in the museum but the view from its roof is magnificent. The guide is very good: he is just 10 or 11 years old and can speak English very well. He also knows how to ask for tips though I think a 100 or 200 rials would suffice.
