Tunisia welcomes record number of British travellers

Tunisia enjoyed a bumper summer season, welcoming 287,541 Brits between January-August 2013, a boost of 29.4 per cent on the same period last year and up 22.5 per cent on 2010’s record breaking tourism figures.

Last month, 55,329 Brits spent their summer holiday in Tunisia, an increase of 26.5 per cent on 2012’s figures and topping the record-breaking 2010 visitor figures by 22 per cent.

“Tunisia has long been a popular destination with UK holidaymakers and these record-breaking figures are testament to our diverse and strong tourism offering.

“With over 3,000 years of culture, stunning natural landscapes, over 45 lavish thalassotherapy centres, and a range of boutique Dars and family-friendly seaside resorts, we are confident that 2013 will be our best year to date,” explained Wahida Jaiet, UK & Ireland director, Tunisian National Tourist Office.
