Tunisia was ranked as the 7th ‘rising star in travel’ with the potential to become among the best post-covid19 destinations in the world after Ethiopia, Iran, Myanmar (Burma), Georgia, the Philippines, and Slovenia, reported an article published by Forbes.
The following is a direct quote by Jared Ranahan, Forbes Travel Commentator who believe that each destination has its own story to tell: “Rife with picturesque Mediterranean beaches, ancient ruins, and Maghrebi cuisine, Tunisia is shaping up to be the perfect destination for those wishing to experience the vibrant and unique culture of North Africa. For many potential visitors, the nation’s extensive coastline serves as a major draw – the northeastern Cap Bon peninsula is packed with idyllic white-sand beaches, with the bustling capital of Tunis just a short distance away. For history enthusiasts, the remnants of Carthage, one of the wealthiest cities to exist during the classical era, is an absolute must-see, while more daring adventurers can make the trek south for a tour of the Sahara Desert, the perfect destination for encountering remnants of historic Berber settlements.”
As announced by covid19.tn and the updated online statistics from the worldometers, with 1,087 total cases (including 49 deaths and 982 recoveries) and with zero new cases for more than 4 days till today June 8th, Tunisia is almost on the way to be a virus-free country very soon.
With the decision of reopening of air, sea and land borders on June 27, 2020, after two months of lockdown, Tunisia, as reported by Targa Consult, is among the safest tourist destinations in the Mediterranean region as well as in the MENA and North Africa. The new positioning amidst the chaos created by the Covid-19 Pandemic, Tunisian tourism is expected to thrive again.
