The city of Shibam, Yemen, rises from the Rub al Khali, or Empty Quarter, a sea of sand that occupies one-fifth of the Arabian Peninsula. The distinctive mud-brick skyscrapers that house Shibam’s 5,000 residents have earned the city its nickname: “Manhattan of the Desert.”

也门Shibam古城矗立在一片名为鲁布哈利,或称为空域,占据了阿拉伯半岛1/15面积的沙海里。容纳了Shibam的5000居民特色泥砖摩天楼使这座城市被誉为”沙漠中的曼哈顿”。
