Douz a porta do deserto do Sahara na Tunísia

Douz Sahara desert door in Tunisia

June 21, 2018 0 By Christian Gutierrez and Priscilla Gutierrez

Douz, to Tunisia, It is considered by the Tunisian city gateway to the Tunisian Sahara desert, We went there on a trip 7 days made by Tunisia and one of the stops was in that city.

First very important information and many asked us was, if Tunisia is a safe country to travel, after we know the country and people, we consider a safe country, and that many Europeans go to vacation because, It is a very cheap country, We not normally took tours, but as access was not so easy to places we took a tour to Douz, and some other cities that will count on other posts and this tour had many Europeans of all parties and large groups. We also think it's safe because we walk in various cities with camera in hand and had no problem, the roads are well policed, too much and people are very kind. One more important detail WELL, never point your camera or mobile phone to a police officer there, they confiscate your camera or mobile phone for safety.

Going back to Douz, It is a small town with less than 40 thousand inhabitants, well within the Sahara desert, and what to do in Douz?
