Comparatively Algeria is way much safer


I'd like now to know now which one is better for sightseeing and which one is cheaper . ?????

I would not have any issues with visiting Algeria. Do they have major problems with Jews or with Israeli passport stamps?

All Islamic countries do, especially Arabs.

Based on two visits, I'd agree with most of what's been posted here. For the most part, I've felt safe in Northern Algeria and around the national park Tassili d' Aijer (sp?). And Algeria is a reasonably interesting and tourist-friendly country. (Speaking French helps, of course.) I wouldn't really characterize it as "non-tourist" Africa. It's not Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania or South Africa, but it certainly draws more tourists than what I think of as non-tourist Africa. But that's a "plus", if you want easy travel. Southern Algeria is another story.

Not a doubt,Algeria is one of the most beautiful country in the world,the largest country in Africa with the largest open museum in the world ( Ahaggar & Tassili N'Ajjers)

Algeria is way much cheaper ,located at 40mns from Fran
ce,20 mns from Spain & Italy,3hrs from UK.

No comparison,Algeria is way much cheaper than South Africa

Not true,Iran,Afghanistan are not an Arab countries,still prohibit Israeli passport holder to enter their countries so is Cuba,Venezuela.
They're just applying the reciprocity,israel prohibits entry to citizens of Arab & Muslim countries including Palestinians.

Algeria welcome Jews in general,not the criminals,army,police,and government officials.

Famous Algerian born Jewish actor was a friend of Algeria during the Algeria's independance asked to be buried in Algiers & he was.

Several Algerian Jews live peacefully in Algeria Algeria

Just like Algerians have issues traveling to Israel,it is much easier to use a different passport.

Algeria is applying the reciprocity rule,every country that applies visa to Algerian citizens,will have the same requirements as a matter of reciprocity
