Yemen, officially the Republic of Yemen, previously written Yemen is a republic south of the Arabian Peninsula. It is bordered by Saudi Arabia, the Red Sea to the east, Oman in the east, the Gulf of Aden to the south. The border with Saudi Arabia has not been finally determined, while the border with Oman was established in 1995. Yemen is the second largest country in area in the Arabian Peninsula. The country is slightly larger than Spain, and is number 50 on the list of the world's countries by zone.

The landscape in Yemen is full of contrasts, from the fertile highlands in the west to the barren coastline and mountainous hinterland to the east. The dominant climate is hot, dry desert climate, apart from the highlands to the west, where it is slightly cooler. Along the coast of the Red Sea, temperatures up to 40 degrees, while the average temperature is about 21 degrees in the highlands.

Yemen's highest point above sea level is the mountain Jabal an Nabi Shu'aib extending 3666 meters above sea level. Mountains Dene have more V-shaped valleys that are dry in summer. Yemen has no permanent rivers, but when the snow on the highest mountains melts, occurs a short rivers. The north-eastern part of Yemen belong Rub al Khali, or the "Empty Quarter", one of the world's sandørkener. Very few people live there and there is not much vegetation.

Yemen is the poorest country in the Arab world. It relies on oil reserves are decreasing.

In spite of a long and culturally advanced history, four sites on UNESCO and great swimming, Yemen has not been initiated tourism to speak of. This is largely due to the numerous internal conflicts and that these in recent times has meant that rebels have taken Western tourists hostage.
