Things to do: historic sites, sightseeing, shopping
One of the oldest cities in the world, the capital Sanaa provides visitors with a rich taste of ancient Arabian culture. Divided into two central districts, the Old City is listed as a World Heritage Site, peppered with ancient relics, giant mosques, and unique geometric architecture. Catch a "dabaab" mini van bus to the newer district; within this sprawling urban metropolis you'll find the country's governorate buildings and historical museums. Due to recent civil unrest and terrorist attacks, check travel advice websites before visiting the city for safety concerns. Add Sanaa and other destinations in Yemen to your travel itinerary using our Yemen trip builder.

Where to stay in Sanaa
With a clear divide between the old and new districts of the city of Sanaa, visitors will find a selection of accommodation options in each. Prices tend to be more reasonable in the new district, with many mid range hotels offering well serviced facilities within walking distance to the more charming old district. For a more luxurious stay on your Sanaa vacation, a handful of 4 star premium hotels are scattered both in and out of the old district, although all are fairly close to the city center.
