‘Can you spend 3 days in Tunisia?’ I thought as I saw great flights from Manchester to Enfidha Airport in Tunisia? Well, the flight was just 3 hours and I’d fly to Europe for 3 days on a 3-hour flight so why not fly to North Africa for 3 days I figured!

Al Ain is where you get to feel what Abu Dhabi, and the whole of the UAE actually, was like before its growth boom.
