Holidaymakers are still booking flights to Tunisia despite the ongoing economic uncertainty.

This is according to the Tunisian National Tourist Office, which said that the north African country offers a mix of "sun, sand, spa, spice and shopping".

Anissa Ramoundi, TNTO’s UK and Ireland director, said that flights to Tunisia typically last for two-and-a-half hours.

"Despite the recession, visitor numbers to Tunisia are continuing to grow, with many Brits looking for holidays that offer a wide range of activities at a price they can afford," she commented.

Tunisia is suitable both as a holiday and city break destination, with the country boasting an impressive blend of history, culture and adventure.

It also serves as a gateway to the Sahara, with many holidaymakers embarking on a camel trekking expedition, paragliding experience or having a go at quad biking or hot air ballooning.

Earlier this month, Tunisia was named as one of Thomson and First Choice’s top 2010 destinations, with the nation praised for its good standard of accommodation and "pristine" sandy beaches.
