Algeria Backpacking and Travel
The best time to visit Algeria is from November to April to avoid the heat and cold (of your county)! Hindered by Civil war previously it still isn't on the radar so there are some real gems for the adventurous tourist here.
Things to see in Algeria
- The Casbah in Algiers - I love this street video, just like backpacking. It does make me feel like it takes some of the adventure out of travel all these videos but at the same time I like it.
- The roman ruins of Djemila - UNESCO video link.
- The Sahara via the northern towns of MZab Valley
- Rock Art in Tassili N'Ajjer gallery
- Tipaza Port -
I personally love Khaled Aisha for example- which I came to learn from living in France it's another of Algerias most famous musical exports. Try it out for some easy listening evocative tunes.
And now some more boring stuff... Algeria in French: Algérie is a country in North Africa. In terms of land area, it is the largest country on the Mediterranean Sea, the second largest on the African continent after Sudan, and the eleventh-largest country in the world.
Yes its big and is just opening up again after the civil war ended.in 2002 the government won and we wonder if the recent political turmoil of the regions neighbours will bring anypart of it back. We say Salaam Aleikum or peace be with you.
Algeria is bordered by Tunisia in the northeast, Libya in the east, Niger in the southeast, Mali and Mauritania in the southwest, a few kilometers of the Moroccan-controlled Western Sahara in the southwest, Morocco in the west and northwest, and the Mediterranean Sea in the north. Its size is almost 2,400,000 km2, and it has an estimated population of about 35,700,000 as of January 2010. The capital of Algeria is Algiers.
Algeria is a member of the United Nations, African Union, and OPEC. It also contributed towards the creation of the Maghreb Union.

Bienvenue, Algeria. To hear French spoken in this part of Northern Africa, isn't a surprise since it was once colonized by France. It was also ruled over by the Ottoman Empire at one time.
Perhaps they all fell in love with Algeria's 1200km of beach, its mountains and forests that cover only one-fifth of the country's 2.3 million square kilometers. The other four-fifths are the sands of the Sahara Desert.
