Tunisia Medical Tourism

Tunisia Medical Tourism has extremely attractive prices, often 50% or less that the price in Western Europe

Located in North Africa and bordered by Algeria and Libya, Tunisia is a premier tourist destination because of its constant sunshine and golden sandy beaches. It lies just south of Sicily on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea and is situated along the Atlas Mountain Range. Also, 40% of the country lies in the Sahara Desert. Tunisia’s varied terrain coupled with its multi-ethnic history (it was part of the Roman Empire, various medieval Islamic states, and a suburb of the capital city of Tunis was the famous Phoenician city of Carthage), makes for a pleasant stay that will fulfill almost anyone’s taste.

Tunisia Medical Tourism Fame

Tunisia has just recently made its debut into the medical tourism game.  Its primary lure is its extremely attractive prices, offering, for example, breast augmentation surgery for half of the price in Western Europe.  Popular surgical procedures sought in Tunisia are in cardiology, urology, and gynecology.  Also, the country’s cosmetic surgeons have good reputations for quality and experience, and the majority of Tunisian physicians were trained in the United States and Europe.

Language

The official language of Tunisia is Arabic; however English is spoken by some businessmen and in tourist areas/major cities.

Climate

Tunisia has a Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers and mild winters.  The most pleasant time to visit is in the spring (mid-March to mid-May), and the summertime is popular for beach bums, but note that this is also the high season, so expect high prices and crowds.  For those interested in visiting the Sahara Desert, the best time to go is during late Fall (November to early December).  November is also the time when the date harvests have wrapped up and some of the music festivals have begun.

Visa / Entrance Requirements

U.S. and Canadian citizens do not require a visa for stays up to 120 days; however a valid passport is required.

      Sightseeing

      With 713 miles (1,148 km) of coastline, Tunisia is a premier destination for beach bums.  Djerba is an island with sandy beaches, a dominant Berber culture, and peculiar, whitewashed domed-hut architecture.  Sousse also has a lovely beach and it is one of Tunisia’s liveliest towns; packed with students, visitors, and locals.  One of Islam’s most holy cities is the walled city of Kairouan.  The city is so important in Islamic hierarchy that seven visits to Kairouan equal one visit to Mecca.  For those of you who are interested in seeing the desert, a trip to Douz is a must.  The city itself is not very exciting, but it does offer desert tours.  Archaeologists will enjoy seeing the ancient ruins of Carthage in Tunis.  Tunis is also home to great shopping, cafes, and nightlife.

      Nightlife and the Arts

      In Tunisia it is not appropriate for women to be out at night, however the cities of Sousse, Hammamet, and some nighttime venues in Tunis are the exceptions to the rule. Note that the club and bar scenes in Sousse and Hammamet are mostly based around the hotels.  The majority of nightlife in Tunisia generally involves private beach parties, BBQ’s, and pool parties.

      The most famous museum in Tunisia is the Bardo Museum in Tunis, which houses collections from the prehistoric, Carthaginian, Roman, Christian, and Islamic eras of Tunisian history.  The museum itself is an architectural landmark and a superb example of Arab-Muslim 17th and 18th century architecture and decoration.  The Carthage Museum, just east of Tunis, has Punic (Phoenician and Cypriot) and Roman collections, and is also an archaeological site.
