Euro exchange rate better than USD? Many sights to visit like the Roman ruins in Tipaza, west of Algiers. You can also visit the beautiful gardens of 'Le Jardin d'Essais' in Algiers. Algeria has stunning beaches untouched by tourism. Try to see the old Casbah in Algiers, an old city built by the Ottoman Empire.

Good luck and have a good time!

Hi ,

It is better if you bring Euro ,because its exchange rate is higher than USD,for hanging out you can go to Tipaza (west of Algiers) it is must to see place especially for the summer period.

If you want to go shopping the best place is the commercial center(Bab Ezzouar) near Algiers airoport.

You should know that if you will have some appointment ,you have to move earlier because the traffic is too heavy some days ...so just take precaution.

Another thing,if you want to buy from a shop ,choose the one who show the price ,because you may be cheated .

Anyway have a good trip,and enjoy your time.
