Yemen: Tourist Destination

Yemeni blogger Omar Barsawad is encouraging people to visit his country. “Due to some few incidences, associated with the so called ‘terrorism’ – Yemen has been (wrongly) made to appear dangerous and unsafe.But contrary to what some or many think, Yemen is very safe. Where else can one stop by on any high way and rest or help others, so easily, without fear? Where else can one walk the streets at any time of day or night without the fear of being mugged or robbed? Very few countries can claim or boast that,” he writes.
