Lonely Planet’s 2015 Best value destinations – Tunisia is the winner
Bang for your buck is a great reason why this uncommon destination is considered their best value destination. But there are some challenges with a relatively recent terrorist attack so check the travel warnings before going.
Some areas may be considered quite safe, but other areas are at the time of this writing suggested to be only visited for essential travel.
This is such a shame, Tunisia was just starting to recover in it’s tourism and now with the attack the destination will fall short on a lot of people’s lists. But if you want to see an area of the world vastly different from Australia then this is surely high on the list.
