*The '''Museum of the Sahara''' - a small but interesting collection portraying traditional Saharan life where the founder and curator, who's also a popular local poet, will courteously and patiently give you a fascinating tour of the collection. Open Tu-Su 9:30AM-4:30PM.

If you take an '''overnight camel trek''', you will get to sleep out in the desert (and hence save the cost of a night's accommodation!).  Be warned though - despite pictures in the tour offices of luxury Bedouin style tents, in practice the shelter is somewhat more basic and bathroom facilities may be somewhat primitive. Still, it is a great experience with campfire, ad hoc drumming/dancing sessions, fire-baked flat bread for breakfast and camel treks back to town the following morning.

*'''Hotel 20 Mars''' is reasonably priced, very clean and relaxed, with simpler rooms downstairs and en-suite rooms on the first-floor all around a cool, pretty courtyard for breakfast, snacks and games of chess.

Yes, it is great fun - with campfire, ad hoc drumming/dancing sessions, fire-baked flat bread for breakfast and camel treks back to town the following morning  -  and facilities not that primitive, either. Highly recommended.
