“Don’t go to Algeria”

Under the nickname “Tolt”, Benjamin Martinie describe his travels, providing suggestions based on his experiences.

In summer 2017 he visited Algeria. He published a video that became viral in a very short time: “Don’t go to Algeria”.In the video, he likes to debunk all the commonplaces related to Algeria (the lack of security, the history of poverty in the Country, …). He concludes that you don’t have to go to Algeria because you will want to remain there and you will won’t come back.

His articles, appeared on “National Geographic”, “ABC” and “The New York Times”, describing the snowy dunes of Ain Sefra, the best 10 tourist destinations of 2018 and Constantiné, also mentioned in”USA Today”, have directed the foreign media’s attention (finally positive) on Algeria and its tourist heritage.
