Wander the Medina. Tangier’s Medina, or Old City, is a labyrinth of cobblestone streets and a mixture of several architectural styles including Moorish, Andalusian, and European colonial. Its vibrant atmosphere and quirky shops make it the perfect place to wander aimlessly. The street plan in complex and many are uphill climbs, so be sure to bring a comfortable pair of walking shoes and don’t forget your camera. If you lose your way, most of the locals can point you in the right direction. Rue Les Almohades is where you’ll find the largest concentration of shops selling things like antique doors, coffee tables, fabrics, mirrors, and other decorative items. Most stores will gladly ship your goods internationally. In this guide to Tangier, we recommend Boutique Majid for its large selection of furniture, jewelry, and ceramics. If you’re in the market for an authentic Berber rug or kilim, visit Coin de L’Art Berbère (53, rue des Chrétiens).

For shopping, I liked Santa Monica. It has the big retail stores along 3rd Street Promenade but if you go into a few smaller streets you can also find some cool boutiques.

The country of Malta is made up of several islands, of which Malta, Gozo and Comino are its three largest inhabited islands. Comino is a small rocky island that has just a handful of inhabitants and is mostly visited as a day trip for beachgoers. Gozo, especially, is the absolute best island to stay in if you’re craving quality R&R. The local restaurants aren’t fancy, but they serve up delicious dishes with local Gozitan goat cheese, olives, olive oil and sweet tomato paste. For more about what to see, do and eat in Gozo, see our article 10 Places to See in Gozo.
Brief Intro to Malta
If you want to experience a typical Santorinian village, head to Pyrgos, which is located at the highest point on the island. Here you’ll get some amazing panoramic views of the island and get the chance to see its traditional archictecture.
7. Don’t miss the Napali Coast.
It would be a shame to come to Bitola and miss Pelister National Park, a 17,150-hectare nature preserve on the north side of Mount Baba. Its mild climate and gentle slope make it ideal for hiking and skiing. Pelister National Park is home to a unique array of flora and fauna, as well as natural springs, waterfalls, and glacial lakes. 29% of Macedonia’s flora and fauna are found in Pelister. Its most famous species is the Molika tree, which can grow up to 40 meters (131 feet) high and live for over 200 years.

Usually, your tour company will be able to kit you out completely, but they are more likely to overcharge for bigger gear. We advise that you definitely bring your own bags and daypacks and to pack your own clothes, headgear (beanies, sun hat, headlamp, sunglasses), gloves, toiletries, sleeping bag, technology, medication and other bits and bobs (like Ziploc bags to keep things dry and energy bars).
