Cairo, Egypt to Tunis, Tunisia

August 4th 2012

After I had a nice four days in Cairo I got all of my belongings and I headed to the airport. I was able to get a flight that was a one way trip from Cairo to Tunis, Tunisia. I was able to get this flight at a cost of $236.02. The airline that I flew with was EgyptAir and the class of my flight was economy class. The actual cost of my ticket alone was just a mere $103.00 but there was a service fee as usual. The service fee was $12.00 and the taxes on my flight were $121.02. There was no connecting flight and it was it was a quick flight. I left the Cairo airport at Jul 31, 2012 10:15 AM and I arrived at the Tunis airport at Jul 31, 2012 12:45 PM. The total flight time was 2 hours and 20 minutes.

The hotel that I stayed in at Tunis was LE DIPLOMAT. This is the second four star hotel that I stayed in so far. This hotel has a large sized lobby, 24/7 room service, beauty parlour, and babysitting. The hotel was situated in the business district. The hotel had three different restaurants and one of them is able to accommodate up to 200 guests. The lobby has a high ceiling and it's decorated with marble floors and marble pillars. Also, the hotel was just 2 km away from the city centre.

At the LE DIPLOMAT I stayed for four nights as usual so I was charged for four nights. I was able to get a single standard room. The price per night that I was able to get was just $64.96. This is pretty inexpensive considering that it is a four star hotel. The total for the four nights that I stayed was $259.84. This was the only hotel that I have been to so far that did not charge tax. I paid $259.84 without taxes.

The three sightseeing places that I went to go see in Tunis were the Medina of Tunis, the Dougga and the Bardo Museum. The first place that I went to go see in Tunis was the Medina of Tunis. The Medina of Tunis is similar to the bazaars and souks of Morocco. It's a bunch of people selling stuff. You can buy rugs and carpets from there. The second place I went to go visit the next day was the Dougga. The Dougga is an ancient ruin that you can visit. The Dougga is a ruin of an ancient town which once had a capitol, a theatre and a mausoleum. The last place that I thing I went to go do in Tunis was go to the Bardo Museum. It is an art museum and it has spectacular Roman mosaics. I also saw ancient artifices along with beautiful paintings. After spending 5 days in Tunis I got ready to leave for my final destination which was Tangier, Morocco.
