Ten Essential Things To Do When You Visit Tunisia

Feb 20, 2008
Whether you are a history buff who loves visiting archeological and historic places or a classic vacationer who is in for some adventure on a foreign place, Tunisia is the place for you. From the beautiful beaches to the momentous landmarks, you will surely find that Tunisia is yet another great place in Northern Africa to visit. Here are some places that you have to visit.

1.) Tunisia' Coastal Farmlands

The known Atlas Mountains divide Tunisia into two - the crop-yielding and the barren region. You will find the coastal farmlands of Tunisia to be surprisingly heterogeneous, meaning you won't see the same site twice. If you think farmlands are boring, wait until you visit Tunisia's farmalands.

2.) Saharan Oases

Tunisia covers a part of the Sahara, the largest in the world. Because only the edge of Sahara is covered by Tunisia, Saharan Oases are abundant in the place. Get a glimpse of the Saharan life by going to Tunisia's Saharan Oases.

3.) Beaches in Tunisia

The best beaches in Tunisia are found in Jarbah and Hammament. Because of Tunisia's coastal position, many beaches can be found in the place. The kind of experience you will have in Tunisia's beaches is bound to be one of a kind because of the hot weather condition.

4.) Ancient City of Carthage

Tunisia was founded by Carthagians - Phoenician traders who eventually settled into the land and built their own city there. Until now, the vestiges of the Ancient City of Carthage still stand strong. If you are into history, you will surely love the sight of it.

5.) Roman ruins at Northeastern Tunisia

Once upon a time, Tunisia was under the rule of the Roman Empire. A visit to Dongya and El Djem will have you enraptured as you see the splendor of Roman architecture. Make sure that you visit the Amphitheater, which was built as early as the 3rd A.D.

6.) Fortified Granaries in Tunisia

To protect their crops from invading nomads from nearby lands, the early people of Tunisia built granaries of impressive architectural design and structure. Until now, these granaries still stand strong and, in fact, have been visited by tourists all around the world. You will surely be impressed with the splendor of Tunisian architecture.

7.) Tunis Panorama

After having treated yourself to a multitude of history trips, you ought to visit the capital of Tunisia, Tunis. Tunis Panorama is very well unlike other capital cities as you will feel as if you are in two places at once. Tunis is divided into two areas - the Muslim quarter associated with narrow and meandering streets and the European quarter with the capacious streets built during the occupation of French in Tunis.

8.) Mosque of Sidi Sahib

If you are interested in matters of religion, you would love Tunisia's mosque of Sidi Sahib. It is the resting place of Sidi Sahib, a known associate of the founder of Islam faith, Muhammad. Religion buffs as well as pilgrims all over the place flock to this special place of Islam.

9.) Rediscovery of Faith

Most people who have been to Tunisia claim that they have gained a renewed sense of faith. Because the majority of the Tunisian people are Muslims, you will certainly find your faith in the front line. Tunisia is the place to go if you want to have peace and quiet as well as answers to your questions of religion.

10.) Tunisian Market

Though the products of Tunisia are not as popular as other African products, you are bound to purchase a lot of cheap items in Tunisia, most especially in Tunis. Tunis is a commercial port. Its strategic location has allowed a variety of goods to be sold at a thrifty price.
