I like to talk about tourism in Yemen. It is the first time I walked in the old market of Taiz. I was happy to see the number of tourists there, but I was struck by many stupid things. Young people looking at the tourists and laughing in their faces. Rude teenagers were saying unknown words and phrases to the tourists as they are speaking a foreign language. These negative action are bad and may make tourists hate our country. I hope that parents advice their sons to respect tourists. When tourists are beyond their country they are feeling many strange feelings. So we should encourage tourists and make them feel as they are in their countries and families.
