Sun, sea and sand are what most people come to Tunisia for - and you can easily pick up a bargain holiday here from Britain, Ireland or mainland Europe, and sun it for a fortnight on the beach. But if you're a bit more adventurous, beyond the beach and the hotel disco there's a land of desert oases, Roman relics, beautiful mosques and fascinating walled cities. The easiest option is to join an organized tour, but you can also rent a car or scoot around on public transport. Tunisia is friendly, safe and generally hassle-free, yet it offers an experience you can genuinely call an adventure. Format: 13 sm x 19,5 sm.
Morocco (Footprint Travel Guides) - Anne McLachlan

The back cover of Footprint's new Morocco guidebook cites praise for earlier editions of Justin McGuiness' book: described by London's Traveller Magazine as "excellent--stands apart from the rest", this is a slick, erudite and attractive guidebook to the most easily accessed country in Africa for Europeans. McGuiness is clearly deeply immersed in the cultures and history of North Africa. A graduate in Arabic, and having lived widely in Tunisia as well as Morocco, his book benefits from his knowledge of the area. There are excellent sections on, for instance, the history of the small Spanish enclaves in Morocco and remote peoples of the Atlas mountains, as well as first-rate coverage on the history and architecture of Morocco's famous medinas. Practical information is also strong, although the book is perhaps tailored most to travellers with a little more than a basic budget to spend--description and information on the cheaper hotels is less detailed than on the more expensive ones. Still this book will be of use to people of all budgets, ages and interests planning a visit to Morocco. The language section benefits from McGuinness' training in Arabic, and some of the architectural descriptions bring to mind the descriptive prowess of Patrick Leigh Fermor--particularly when McGuinness describes the great mosques, such as Marrakech's Koutoubia Mosque. Providing insights into both historical and contemporary Morocco, this is certainly a book to take with you when you travel. --Toby Green
Advantages: Very Clean, Good Food Disadvantages: A Fair Distance From The Main Resort
...The Hotel Royal Kenz in the Resort of Port El Kantaoui in Tunisia was recently my Home for 7 nights between the 2nd and 9th July 2006. The Holiday itself was a last minute booking but the Girl at the Travel Agent's said that She had stayed at this Hotel and that it was superb.
The price for the total package, including Flights and transfers was incredibly cheap at just under £200 Half Board...
Advantages: Good Bargains At The Medina Disadvantages: Industrialised, Hassle From The Locals
...You could be forgiven for missing Sousse off the itinerary whilst visiting Tunisia. After all it is Tunisia's second largest City, but unlike Tunis the Capital, Sousse has a reputation of being a lot more industrialised.
During my recent visit to the Country I stayed in a Holiday Resort called Port El Kantaoui, which is a purpose built Resort just 12 Kilometres from Sousse.

Review of Sousse (Tunisia)
Advantages: Gives a brilliant insight into what it was like to live in an ancient Roman city. Disadvantages: Took ages to get there.
...with rolling plains below the city. I was pleasantly surprised how green the countryside was as I had always imagined Tunisia to be dry and arid the surrounding hillsides are covered with olive trees, Pomegranate trees and vineyards.
The nearest place to get something to eat is about 3 miles away in the one and only Thugga hotel in the village of Teboursouk. We stopped here for lunch which was quite...
