TUNIS, OCTOBER 16, 2022 - Tunisia has once again emerged as one of the top 10 destinations to visit in North Africa. With an arrival of over 6 million tourists with predictions of it doubling by 2030, this North African beached beauty has been attracting more and more tourists compared to its other North African counterparts. It is a picturesque nation with plenty of irresistibly arresting spots that make every moment worth the time and money spent.
A mere 3 hour flight from the UK, Tunisia is a stunning place with a moderate climate, very amiable people, and a stretch of buildings and sites serving as a reminder that various cultures predating the Phoenicians and Berbers established themselves here whose remnants still remain. Both hymnal and secular music playing in tandem with Tunisian instruments captivate the travellers and locals alike every single time. Overlooking the majestic Mediterranean, the beaches are daintily scenic leading right to the desert regions with clear night sky, the stunning cultural attractions and windswept yet exotic souks, some of which remind of the times gone by.
Tunisia offers great many adventures for the winged travellers that include diving, snorkelling, wind surfing, water skiing and many others. A country that used to be the breadbasket of Rome and Koh-i-Noor of Arab Empires, Tunisia also boasts of jaw-dropping tourist attractions that is way different than most other Middle Eastern of North African countries. Add to it the fascinating and vibrant capital city of Tunis with the popular and charming village of Sidi Bou Said resplendent with blue and white houses which is just a 30 minute drive from capital.
The culinary habits of Tunisia is rich and diverse. Dishes like Lablabi and Couscous show the influence of multiple cultures in the country. Alcohol is widely available compared to its counterpart Arab nations (except on Fridays). Pound, Euro, Dollar or Dinar stretches a long way in the country; even more so with plenty of hotels and restaurants serving international cuisines. With the Mediterranean on one side and the Sahara on the other, Tunisia is truly a wondrous nation that deserves to be on every traveller's checklist
