When I saw the dunes I remained speechless. Literarly. Fantastic people make you feel like at home, a must-do trip to the gold dunes for over night in a real nomadic tent with a real berber delicious supper and at last for the most stunning, a breath taking sunrise seen from the Biggest of all dunes. Go some 5 km further from Hassilabied to see Gnawa people who perform some traditional dance. Try to destinguish which one is the best among all the berber whiskey (green tea with mint and a looooot of sugar) you are offered anyway you go. Reliable, gentle people;clean cozy rooms and the most superb cuisine (oh how I miss their tajine!!!). I'll be back there for sure
