Douz Sahara desert door in TunisiaJune 21, 2018
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?
Things to Do in Douz and what are its main tourist attractions?
To be in Sahara desert door in Tunisia, the city revolves around the theme tours such as desert, like camel ride through the dunes of Tunisia, a different tour.
The ride through the desert can also be made of quadricycle, a better option not to wear much camels.
There is a giant in the region salt lake in Tunisia, a wonder of nature, O Tunisia salt desert It is immense and much places to make you have optical illusion (miragem) thinking it is seeing the sea. Before we did not even know existed this salt desert in the middle of the Sahara.
O salt lake He turned a desert, called Chott el-Jérid, we saw the sunrise on the lake was an unforgettable image.
Lastly, one of the most amazing (It was because of him that we did the tour) It is the ride up one of Oasis Tunisia, O Chebika oasis, people, what a wonderful place, on the mountain through the Sahara desert, We enter a region with water sprouting from the ground and making a killing around, We had never seen an oasis and it was really wonderful, love.
