Getting There Getting Around
Flights go from San'a's airport to most of western Europe, Moscow, Kenya, Tanzania, Egypt, Ethiopia, Sudan, the Middle East, India and Pakistan. No buses travel to Yemen. If you hire a car, you can drive from Oman through Salalah or from Saudia Arabia along the Tihama road, but leave plenty of time for bureaucracy. There's a departure tax of US$10.
There are plenty of internal flights in Yemen if you're in a hurry and can spare the cash. Buses go along all major asphalt roads - you need to buy a ticket beforehand at the terminal or at a major stop. Service taxis run on predetermined routes but without timetables - when they're full, they leave. Taxis travel most bus routes but also run on unpaved roads. You'll pay up to 50% more than you would for a bus. You can also hire private taxis. Rental cars generally come with their own drivers and are hired at travel agents.
