visiting Socotra Island

hi!

first of all I aplogize... cannot speck German!

i am Yemenite from Socotra island, a small paradise 300km from Yemen and Somalia coast.

I would like to give information on this wonderful place to all people interested in visiting it...

After visiting Europe last summer, i realized that Yemen is not coming very popular... so since the development of my island is basically linked to tourism, please just keep this forum alive with all your questions and opinion on Yemen and of course Socotra

Hi,

We are planing to visit Socotra via Sharjah in April 2012. Is there something we should be worried about?

My biggest concern is that we wan't be able to use our cellphones. Is that still valid?

Waaaaw thank you for sharing everyone.

May I ask the last poster how much did he paid for the agent how took care of all the arrangements?

I look really forward to visit such a nice place but I don't feel like I wanna have a driver or a guide as I would not feel comfortable....

Best regards

I guess I am just like Komodo :) because I am a female solo traveler too! Maybe we can think about going on a journey together ? Hahhahahahaha
