Yemen is an Arab country in Western Asia at the southern end of the Arabian Peninsula. Yemen is the second-largest country in the peninsula, occupying 527,970 km2(203,850 sq mi). It is bordered by Saudi Arabia to the north, the Red Sea to the west, the Gulf of Adenand Arabian Sea to the south, and Oman to the east-northeast. Although Yemen's constitutionally stated capital is the city of Sana'a, the city has been under rebel control since February 2015. Because of this, Yemen's capital has been temporarily relocated to the port city of Aden, on the southern coast. Yemen's territory includes more than 200 islands; the largest of these is Socotra.
With its long sea border between eastern and western civilizations, Yemen has long existed at a crossroads of cultures with a strategic location in terms of trade on the west of the Arabian Peninsula.
Yemen was the home of the Sabaeans (biblical Sheba), a trading state that flourished for over a thousand years and also included parts of modern-day Ethiopia and Eritrea. In 275 AD, the region came under the rule of the later Jewish-influenced Himyarite Kingdom. Christianity arrived in the fourth century, whereas Judaism and local paganism were already established. Islam spread quickly in the seventh century and Yemenite troops were crucial in the expansion of the early Islamic conquests.
Administration of Yemen has long been notoriously difficult. Several dynasties emerged from the ninth to 16th centuries, the Rasulid dynasty being the strongest and most prosperous.
The Zaydi Mutawakkilite Kingdom of Yemen was established after World War I in North Yemen before the creation of the Yemen Arab Republic in 1962. South Yemen remained a British protectorate known as the Aden Protectorate until 1967 when it became an independent state and later, a Marxist state. The two Yemeni states united to form the modern republic of Yemen in 1990.

10 Most Dangerous Tourist Destinations in the World
Get more Tips here!
While escaping the everyday routine to go on an extreme vacation, some risky places require a lot more preparation and forethought than others. Aside from the war-torn hotspots, here are a handful of dangerous places that you might dare to visit.
1. Kokoda Track, Papua New Guinea
The Kokoda Track presents many challenges and dangers to the increasing number of adventurers that it accommodates, but by far the greatest danger is the perpetual infestation of malarial mosquitoes.
2. Death Road, Bolivia
Claiming around 250 lives per year, the aptly named Death Road is one of the most dangerous roads in the world. One wrong move, and you could end up plummeting down a 2,000-foot vertical drop. At its highest, the road reaches over 15,000 feet before descending to only 3,900 feet above sea level.
3. Chernobyl, Ukraine
The whole region, spanning some 1,000 square miles, was evacuated in 1986 due to the devastating explosion at the local nuclear power plant. However, the danger comes not so much from radiation any more, but the countless precariously abandoned buildings.
4. Cliffs of Moher, Ireland
The Cliffs of Moher reach a maximum height of 700 feet, but with the huge vertical drops right into the sea and frequent high winds, you certainly won’t want to veer too close to the edge. Sadly the cliffs also have a reputation for attracting self-destructive and even suicidal behavior.
5. Acapulco, Mexico
The crime rate has become astronomical in recent years, running at nearly 30 times higher than the US average. The vast majority of the crime largely involves drug cartels and does not specifically target tourists. However, you best take heed before planning a trip to this pretty seaside town
6. New Smyrna Beach, Florida
Named one of the world’s 20 best surfing towns by National Geographic in 2012, this unfortunate region also has highest number of shark attacks anywhere in the world. There have been 238 incidents on record, 12 in 2008 alone.
7. Danakil Depression, Ethiopia
This is a highly active volcanic region. It’s also extremely inhospitable, being one of the hottest spots on Earth. Unfortunately, the area is made even more uninviting due to border disputes with neighboring Eritrea.
8. Mount Everest, Nepal
Standing just over 29,000 feet above sea level at the summit, the air is so thin that oxygen tanks and breathing masks are essential. Over 250 people have died attempting to reach the summit. Many bodies still lie frozen in the snow. Some have earned nicknames and serve as trail markers along Everest’s routes.
9. Hua Shan, China
The walk consists of unstable wooden boards precariously clinging to the cliffs. With no guard rails and a largely unstable construction, many lives have been claimed by this walk, which features drops of up to 7,000 feet.
10. Mont Blanc, France
With a peak of over 16,000 feet, Mont Blanc in France is one of the most breathtaking yet dangerous hiking spots in Europe. There's a threat of high wind speeds and a constant risk of avalanches. The mountain has claimed dozens of lives in recent decades.
