Tadrart Acacus

Zoë Sheng Chinese-Canadian - 10-Apr-22

Tadrart Acacus

One thing I want to make clear: Tadrart Acasus and Tassili n'Ajjer, the eastern section also called Tadrart, are hardly distinguishable. If you visit the Algerian side you should only have a reason to visit Libya due to bordered defined by the UNESCO committee. The rock art is on both sides but I feel the countries don't want to cooperate and Algeria is limiting the site to what it is now, the western section of Tassili n'Ajjer NP. At the moment the Libyan land border is officially closed so you need to hike over the Tadrart plateau to get into Libya only to claim you have set foot into it, something I can't say is worth it. Or come from the Libyan side which involves a long, long drive and then the park may still be officially closed anyway.

Le site archéologique de Sbeïtla (T)

Zoë Sheng Chinese-Canadian - 06-Apr-22

Le site archéologique de Sbeïtla (T)

Sufetula ruins are quite big and some highlights as pictured but overall I found they aren't unique enough to be inscribed. Haven't we got enough Roman ruins already, better, more unique and really worth visiting.

The ticket office is across the entrance by the way, so if you just walk in they'll follow you to buy a ticket. Somehow they only do this to foreign guests which seems a little discriminating, and while I don't care about the difference in entrance ticket price the fact they can just waltz in but I get chased after with a buggy because there was nobody at the entrance made me feel like I dislike the place too...

Carthage

Zoë Sheng Chinese-Canadian - 06-Apr-22

I'm not even bothering to look for fitting pictures. The site is spread out far enough that on foot you may not cover all especially as some require crossing roundabouts, but you should do the bath, villas, amphitheater and the museum. They are all covered by one ticket.

I took the train from downtown Tunis all the way across which costs hardly anything and takes for 30 minutes. Your stop will be very close to the baths.

Overall there isn't much left of the place and I've seen much better ruins. As far as I understand, and don't take my word for it, the city was destroyed in favor of keeping Dougga. It's historically still important but not impressive.

Île de Djerba (T)

Zoë Sheng Chinese-Canadian - 06-Apr-22

Île de Djerba (T)

Absolutely horrible. Djerba is great for beach resorts but trying to include the crappy traces of archeology around is just pathetic. I would give it half a star. That "thing" in the top right corner is actually a site! The Meninx remains may be sort of interesting but you only see these symmetrically placed rocks... Seriously?! If you are on Djerba with a car then by all means have a look around but doing a tour, as I saw another couple do, is just a waste of money. You are better off visiting the Mos Eisley Cantina than mosques and towers.

Habitat troglodytique et le monde des ksour du Sud tunisien (T)

Zoë Sheng Chinese-Canadian - 06-Apr-22

Habitat troglodytique et le monde des ksour du Sud tunisien (T)

Troglodytes aren't too unique, cave dwellings are already inscribed. I don't see how much more the ones in Tunisia can offer but it does make for a great visit. The area has lots of them and they are not tourist museums but still in used by families today. The description calls them storage and granaries but they appear to be just homes. You can follow signs to visit one, pay the family some money to be shown around and try not to feel like you just intruded their lives, because it sure felt that way on my visit. If you can't find one you can always ask in town. I think I also saw one there that seemed more touristy but I had already visited two by then so I was good to continue on my journey.
