Yemen Things to Do: 143 reviews and 301 photos


At first, Sanaa Old Town and the Suk area seem chaotic and difficult to navigate (especially because of the lack of good city maps or streetsigns and because the houses look very similar). The easiest way to navigate is to memorize the way from your accomodation to the gate "Bab al Yemen". If you get lost, ask "Aina al Bab al Yemen?" (=Where ist the Bab al Yemen?"), and everybody will point you in the right direction.
