A destination which proves that size doesn’t matter, Tunisia packs a real punch when it comes to offering fantastic holidays. One of the smallest countries on the African continent, it successfully combines influences from around the world to provide the perfect destination for travellers in need of some escape from the stresses of everyday life.
There are many cheap holidays to Tunisia readily available, which means you can enjoy this diverse landscape without it costing you a fortune. A wealth of attractions and activities are all on offer at affordable prices and, but with so much for you to enjoy, here are our top five suggestions of things you can’t afford to miss:
Tunisia offers everything from modern shopping centres to districts filled with traditional medinas and market stalls.
Haggling is a part of life here, so come with a few bartering phrases committed to memory. If you lack the confidence to negotiate then there are plenty of fixed-priced shops which are still highly affordable.
Traditional amphitheatres still stage performances of local music and entertainment in Tunisia; but there are also plenty of nightclubs with soundtracks provided by world-class DJs for those with more modern tastes. You’ll find plenty of high-quality, local cuisine served in the good restaurants in every town too.
Whatever your pace of life is, Tunisia has the perfect sporting activity for you. Leisurely camel rides can be taken across the extensive desert whilst those wanting to get their hearts racing can cover the same sands in 4x4s. For water lovers there’s everything from windsurfing to jet-skiing, surfing and deep-sea diving, whilst hot air balloon rides offer a bird’s eye view of this amazing country. You can even enjoy a round of golf at the various courses found here.
With the weather averaging over 20°C across the country, even in autumn, Tunisia offers the perfect environment for exploration. If you’re looking for great ways to spend time on your holidays in Tunisia then consider visiting archaeological sites such as El Kef, Dougga and Tunis. Tunisia has also provided the backdrop for films such as Monty Python’s Life of Brian and Raiders of the Lost Ark, so why not take the Hollywood tour and visit well known film sites?
Finally, cheap holidays are all about getting some much needed ‘R and R’. Beaches are the perfect location for this and the Tunisian coastline delivers more than its fair share. Popular spots such as Sousse receive large numbers of visitors during peak seasons while less known coasts in El Hawaria offer a quieter setting.
