12 days backpacking in December.

Hi there,

As a single male traveller, I am planning a 12 days trip which will begin and end at Tunis Airport.

I feel there will only time for 6 cities / places. I am planning to use trains as much as possible.

I'd particularly like to visit the Sahara - is there any local guides or travel agencies you can suggest? My budget is limited so can't do one of those expensive expeditions.

Any advice about cultural places worth a visit and ideas for accommodation ideas will be highly appreciated.

Thanks everyone.

Here's three good value budget B&B hotels that we've used:

- Tunis: La Maison Doree. Very close to the main train station, the centre of the city, the Medina, and about a 20 minute walk to the TGM station for trains to Carthage and Sidi Bou Said...


- Hammamet: Les Citronniers...


- Sousse: Kaiser Hotel...


A reasonable budget place in Tozeur is The Warda Residence, but when we were there it was full of university students on a Field Study...


If you want the Tunisian trains timetable...

Bring warm clothes, we are in Sousse now and it gets cold in the evening.
