Ramlat as-Sab'atayn

A great journey form Marib to Sayun is across the impressive Ramlat as-Sab'atayn desert. You'll need a Bedouin guide to accompany you (and you should tip him afterwards).
Streaming for hours across the desert in the wind, sun and sand, you'll soon get an idea of how vast the desert really is.
En routen you can stop at Bedouin encampments and take tea under thier woven, goat hair tents.
Some may offer to sell you locally made handicrafts.
