Tunisia may be back on the agenda for Aussies

North African countries have traditionally been fantastic places to visit, but recent unrest in nations like Tunisia and Egypt has put many tourists off travelling.

It is a real shame, as both countries have sublime beaches, hot weather and a rich culture.

Reuters reports that Tunisia's visitor numbers fell from seven million in 2010 to just five million last year, but the nation is hoping to recover in 2012.

Now that things have settled down, tourism chiefs are hopeful that six million holidaymakers will visit this year and Aussies can find plenty of trips that offer great value for money.

Before you go, it is worth searching for the best exchange rates and one dollar will currently get you 1.6 Tunisian dinar.

One of the best features of north African countries is the thriving marketplaces, where bartering is a way of life.

Your overseas travel money can stretch a long way if you master the art of haggling and it is worth honing your skills before you get on the plane.
