A stone throw away from Rome, Paris and London, Tunisia has become on of the world's tourist hot spots. However, beach tourism is not the only attraction the country offers, Saharan tourism, golf tourism, cultural tourism, sport tourism, and health tourism are also increasingly luring millions of holiday seekers to Tunisia.


There are great swathes of desert, with stunning oasis, tropical style beaches and ancient cities, you’ll also find a abundance of carpets! The people are warm and friendly and this all makes for a very attractive desination.

The old towns of Sfax and Mahdia are well worth a visit. However, a few of the coastal towns are hugh tourist traps which some people will want to avoid.


If your looking for stunning scenery then the west of Tunisia is for you. You can take an old train which dates back to the 1920’s which is refered to as the lizard due to the way that the track winds through the mountains.


You will find the south of Tunisia is mainly desert. If you are a Star Wars buff, the first film was made at the cave dwellings at Matmata. Dream Island , or to give it its official name Jerba, is another fantastic destination in the south.
