Last month, 55,329 Brits spent their summer holiday in Tunisia, an increase of 26.5 per cent on 2012’s figures and topping the record-breaking 2010 visitor figures by 22 per cent.
“Tunisia has long been a popular destination with UK holidaymakers and these record-breaking figures are testament to our diverse and strong tourism offering. With over 3,000 years of culture, stunning natural landscapes, over 45 lavish thalassotherapy centres, and a range of boutique Dars and family-friendly seaside resorts, we are confident that 2013 will be our best year to date,” says Wahida Jaiet, UK & Ireland Director for the Tunisian National Tourist Office.
“Summer may be over, but Tunisia still has plenty to offer holidaymakers looking to combine a fascinating cultural break with indulgent thalasso spa treatments this autumn. With cooler days in the coming months, visitors can enjoy a pleasant day on our prestigious golf courses or take in the impressive salt lakes of Chott el-Jerid, desert festivals and movie set locations of southern Tunisia, for a thrilling alternative to the traditional sun, sea and sand holiday,” continues Jaiet.
With an average temperature of 25°C in October and at only two and half hours flight away from the UK, Tunisia is a great destination for some early winter sun.
