"Often overlooked" `Amran by dutchwindmill

`Amran Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 39 photos

Very quiet and charming

This old city is often overlooked as it may have no particular sights distinguishing it from other old cities in Yemen. But the ensemble is very nice and well-kept. And within easy reach. Amran makes for a nice stop on a day trip from Sana'a via Wadi Dahr to Amran and then onto Thula, Hababah, Shibam/Kawkaban and back to Sana'a. Total time behind the wheel: 3 hours.

Nice kids

Some will follow you around, but as this is a city low on tourists they follow the old Yemeni values, including 'no begging'.

Old houses

For those with a discerning eye the houses differ from city to city.
