  1. Assalamualaikum, Administrators.

    My name is Yung. (zxplot@gmail.com)

    I have a plan to trip to Socotra this year.
    I saw the post that recommends this web site for travel to Socotra on trip-advisor.
    And I’m writing the emails now.

    I have some questions about trip to Socotra.

    1. Travel time or season and climate
    I have a plan to go to Socotra between 29th May to 9th in June or
    6th to 11th in Feb, 2016. I know the Feb is the best time to travel to Socotra.

    But I wonder the travel conditions from late May to early June.
    Is it still possible to travel to Socotra? of course it’s not the best.

    If I go to Socotra, I’d like to do camping on the beach also.
    Is it still possible from late May to early June or You don’t recommend
    for travelling that time?

    2. Flight to Socotra
    I saw many news that Yemenia Airways operates direct flight frome Dubai
    to Socotra But I couldn’t find any available schedules on Yemenia Airways Website.

    Is there a regular flight once a week from Dubai to Socotra nowdays?
    And I saw the price of air ticket is about $650. But some information tells that
    the price is just for one-way. I wonder the round trip price from Dubai to Socotra.
    Could you please check the information?

    Lastly, are there other cities that is connected to Socotra in a short period of time,
    like Doha and somewhere else?

    3. Visa and letter of Invitation
    Is the arrival visa at Socotra airport possible or you recommend to issue in advance?

    And is the letter of Invitation needed also?

    If I go to Socotra, hope to make a good memories with unexplored-socotra

    I’ll wait for your reply.

    Have a nice day.
