HUFFINGTON POST

The Huffington Post thinks that Algeria might just be the most beautiful country in the world...

NEW ALGERIA PHOTOS

We've just put some new photos on our Facebook page - why not take a look?

Algiers in the Guardian newspaper

"Few travellers visit Algeria these days but the country's capital - famous for its brilliant light - has a beauty that belies its recent history" - a rare thing: an English-speaking newspaper is taking an interest in Algeria, and has just published a very positive article on Algiers. We re-print the article in its entirety here.

What makes the Algerian Sahara so unique?

The rock arches, gueltas and immense dunes of the Tadrart occupy the deep, deep south of Algeria; the kingdom of the M'Zab, with the town of Ghardaia at its heart, is hundreds and hundreds of miles further to the north... yet both belong to the great undiscovered Algerian Sahara - what is it that makes these vast expanses so special?

UNESCO Algeria

Algeria is now proud to have seven sites inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage list, all of which can be visited on tours operated by Expert Algeria: Beni Hammad, Djemila, the M'Zab Valley, the Tassili, Timgad, Tipasa and the casbah of Algiers.

ALGERIA: A CONTINENT IN ITSELF

So says The Washington Post!

"The largest country in Africa boasts a pristine Mediterranean coastline, fertile green highlands, snow-peaked mountains and the majestic Sahara down south. Unlike its immediate neighbors Tunisia and Morocco, Algeria is not a busy tourist destination, yet it is a country of rare beauty. The main differences is that there are virtually no foreign tourists in Algeria (with the the exception of some French visitors)."
