Douz : Michelin's recommendations
Douz, a tiny oasis on the edge of the Sahara, is an ideal base from which to explore this huge desert, where locals will inundate you with numerous excursion options. Before heading off on your desert adventure make sure you visit the Sahara Museum, and try not to miss the Thursday market, when inhabitants from the oases of the Nefzaoua region, where former nomads have now settled, congregate in Douz.
