Taiz today is the largest industrial base in Yemen. It is located in the Yemeni Highlands, and it is near the famous Port of Mocha on the Red Sea, at the centre of the coffee growing region and where cotton, leather and jewelry are also produced. Also, the sufficient rainfall in the surrounding areas also provides for agricultural production for vegetables and other cultivations. Lying at an elevation of about 1,400 metres above sea level, Taiz has a dramatic mountainous setting and has a population of over 2 million inhabitants. There are also many roads connecting Taiz to the rest of the country including to Sanaa, the capital, and the Red Sea Port of Hodeidah. The city is also served by an International Airport.
