Tozeur makes an excellent base for longer forays into the surrounding area, including the mesmerising Chott El Jerid, Tunisia's largest salt lake, and the mountain oases to the north. Bounded on one side by an enormous palmeraie and with the desolate snow-white expanse of salt on the other, the town feels at once far-flung and urban and lively.
