Yemen is shrugging off its image of being a country with a security issue, to reveal its stunning landscape and fascinating culture ? justifiably worth visiting by professional archaeologists, historians, the business traveller, or those making the most of Yemen's adventure sports, such as hiking and scuba-diving. All will gain thrills treading on ground which is the site of the Sabaean dynasty, the era of the fabled Queen of Sheba. Yemen is undoubtedly the choice of those interested in digging deeper into regional culture.
