  Nasr with typical beat-up Sana'a taxi
by travelinxs

A taxi to and from the airport should be about 1000YR ($5 / UK2.50) but I think I was lucky and most seem to be paying about 1500YR. Expect to pay more again after dark. A (private - not shared) taxi across the city will be around 400YR ($2 / UK1.00). There are two types of taxi, both yellow but easy to distinguish. The modern Roha company taxis are metered and less negotiable but perhaps more reliable. The beat up yellow taxis owned by everyone else may possibly be a little cheaper but need to be haggled down.
