Jun 15th 2009 6:18AM I have just returned from a short business trip to Sana'a and although I was wary of the possibility of terror attacks and kidnapping I never at any point felt threatened.
The capital of Yemen and the people were both incredible and I was made to feel extremely welcome. I would have no hesitation in returning, and indeed will need to soon, however I would listen very carefully to the locals and heed their warnings about what roads and areas are safe to travel in. If you ask for and listen to local knowledge you can avoid areas of heightend danger and visit a country that is like no other.
I have travelled extensively and found Yemen and the Yemenis all and more than I anticipated. A truly unique and incredible destination, but be sensible and listen to local advice.
