What are the pros and cons of living in Yemen?

Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Yemen responded:

"Expats and digital nomads living in Yemen appreciate the country's rich culture and history, as well as its stunning landscapes and diverse wildlife. They also enjoy the warm hospitality of the Yemeni people and the low cost of living. On the other hand, they may find the lack of modern infrastructure and the security situation in the country to be challenging. Additionally, the limited access to reliable internet and other amenities can be a source of frustration," explained one expat in Yemen.
