Voice of Travelers to Algeria

First time ticket to Algeria.

I boarded Air Europa from spain with ticket to Algeria. The onboard crew was very nice and I was very comfortable as I paid for First class ticket.I have been here in Algeria for only two days and I am already in love with the country. I have had a taste of some meals here and they are very delicious. I have tried some specialties in Algeria like brochettes, couscous, shakshuka, tajine, chickpea-cakes and pressed dates. Though the foods are great I was dissapointed by the fact that alcohol is not available in the expensive restaurants here in Algeria and where they are offered they are not of great quality. Algeria is a nice country and when I am through with my business meeting I will explore some places before taking a leave and I will also buy tickets for all my family members to visit.

Which place did you pay your ticket to visit in Algeria?

I arrived here in Algeria with a ticket from France.I boarded Air France and the services in the plane were good though not extremely since I paid for the normal ticket. I have specifically visited some mountains like; Atlas mountains, Aurès Mountains, Mount Tahat, Assekrem is a high plateau in the Hoggar Mountains of southern Algeria. The plateau rises from a larger plateau, Atakor. When you visit this place you also get to visit other places. When I visited Hoggar mountains I got to also visit Ahaggar National Park and the experience was very good and the places had good scenery and some outdoor activities like mountain climbing were very exciting.Though I bought a ticket in order to visit mountains in the country I will also visit some other popular places like Jardin d'Essai du Hamma, I have been hearing about the garden and I wish to visit it.
