5 of the best geek holidays
Star Wars fanatics will be able to die happy after a trip to the sandy North African country, which provided many of the locations for Luke Skywalker’s home planet of Tatooine. Stay at Matmata’s Hotel Sidi Driss – which you might recognise as Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru’s house, then visit La Grande Dune, aka the Dune Sea, where C3PO and R2D2 crash.
You can also wander down “Star Wars Canyon” at Sidi Bouhlel, the gully where the two droids are captured by jawas, before visiting Mos Eisley itself – or rather Ile de Jerba, which provided the exterior for the wretched hive of scum and villainy’s famous cantina.
