Paradise island in Middle East: it is so dilapidated that it is not as good as a remote mountain village. The villagers guard golden mountain in order to live a hard life.
There is a small island in world with resource-rich species, and even hundreds of species not found in other regions. This small island is called Socotra Island, located between Gulf of Aden and Arabian Sea. Although many people consider it an island of bliss, inhabitants of island live in poverty.
This is largest island in Arabian Peninsula. Due to fact that this area has little contact with outside world, as well as due to factors such as heat and wind, local population is sparse. Therefore, Suo Island has preserved its original ecological appearance very well. It is home to a large number of creatures with thousands of years of history, such as cucumber trees and dracaena, which are rare, and rare plants can also be found on this island.
After investigation and research, it was found that hundreds of unique species live on this island, and among these species, animal species are majority. In order to protect native species, Suo Island is very careful about alien species and once went as far as banning any alien species from entering country.
The actual population of entire island is less than 30,000. There are no tall buildings on this island, and construction situation here seems to still be in a relatively backward period. The biggest impression of buildings here is that Won.
Perhaps due to local climate and topography, proximity to ocean causes local humidity, and even if wall is painted, wall cladding falls off very easily. In addition, local sunlight is plentiful, and prolonged exposure to sun also adversely affects preservation of these buildings.
Although there are not many local houses and buildings to distinguish hotel from locals, locals have painted white paint on outer walls of hotel so that tourists who come here can clearly find location of hotel.
The experience of living here is not really good. There is not enough electricity on island. During day, air conditioner may be turned on for a short time, and some electrical appliances may be turned off. used, but after a night these electrical appliances basically can no longer be used.
The clear water of So Island is amazing. Therefore, beautiful sea has also become an important factor in attracting tourists. Once island of Suo received a large number of tourists. But later, due to special reasons, number of tourists coming here dropped sharply.
In order to protect marine resources in area, a diving and dumping ban has been issued, but due to lack of a perfect local government system, the implementation of these bans has not been effective . In order to promote tourism in Soo Island, these bans gradually ceased to exist, and these bans have also become local promotional content to attract tourists here. .
There are different types of plants on Seo Island, and Dracaena is one of them. According to locals, dragon's blood resin not only has medicinal value, but can also be used as a dye for clothes. Since local hot and humid climatic conditions are suitable for the conditions in which dracaena grows, a large number of dracaena are planted locally.
Sale of dragon blood oil has also become one of sources of income for locals. Walking along road to Suo Island, you can see merchants selling dragon blood oil everywhere. The process of extracting dragon blood oil from dragon blood tree is not easy, and this work is mostly done by people with rich harvesting experience. Since protection of trees is also considered, whole adoption process is very careful.
In addition to dragon's blood tree, bottle tree is also a local characteristic tree species. This tree does not hold much water, and due to climate change, bottle trees here are very different from those found in other regions. Most of water in bottle tree on Suo Island is hidden in roots of tree, and it has its own special way of storing water.
If you want to come here, you need to have a strong mental preparation. Due to backward development of area, urban sanitation here can be considered relatively poor among many tourist destinations. in world. Public facilities are not perfect and there are no wide roads.
Even in entire city, there are no clearly demarcated commercial and residential areas. Walking along street, you can occasionally stumble upon unfound garbage. On street, heaps of rubbish are especially striking. If there is windy weather, then this rubbish will fly around city as wind blows.
In terms of medical conditions, it is also very backward: there are not many places where you can be treated, and even in their capital there is only one small clinic that can work normally. As far as education is concerned, there is only one school on entire island, and it is built on seashore. This led to problem of backward level of education in area.
Food prices are not expensive here, because it is close to ocean, and seafood here is a common delicacy on table. But what's incredible is that some of restaurants here don't provide tables or even crockery. If you eat in such restaurants, customers can only solve problem as it is.
Although infrastructure on this island is not perfect, it is rich in views. For those who are interested in studying animal and plant species, this is a good place to study and research.
