Yemen is on the list of places that can't visit you but this does not really apply to the remote island with plants that are up to 20 million years old. The island, often called “the most alien-looking place on Earth,” is so isolated that more than a third of its plant life does not exist anywhere else. The dragon trees are on some of the most famous photos of the place.
