Although El Aaiún in Western Sahara may not draw a lot of tourists yet, it can be just as fascinating to explore as neighboring Morocco. Founded by the Spanish and administered by Morocco since 1976, the city has an interesting mixture of cultures. Perhaps the best way to see the El Aaiún is to hire one of the locals as a tour guide. Explore the local markets – be prepared to bargain, of course – and later take a trip into the desert, usually by jeep. If you're adventurous enough to brave the desert winds, your guide can arrange for you to share a meal with a local Bedouin family – taste camel kebab if you dare! When your stomach is full, share a cup of coffee and end the day by watching the sun setting over the dunes. Sounds appealing, doesn't it?
