The Arab Spring was triggered by the despair of a Tunisian street vendor named Mohamad Bouazizi at the humiliation meted out by officials of a corrupt regime. He doused himself in petrol, set fire to himself, and died on 4 January 2011.Cheap Flights from Shanghai to Sapporo

His death triggered an uprising that spread quickly across the North African nation. Ten days later President Ben Ali fled to Saudi Arabia, a traditional retirement home for deposed dictators. That momentous day is commemorated in the Place 14 Janvier 2011.

As pressure for human rights rippled across North Africa and the Middle East, Tunisia experienced a peaceful transition to a pretty good approximation of democracy. Yet within days the Foreign Office declared the country off limits. The planes went in, the holidaymakers flew out, and the tourism industry — in which an estimated 200,000 people were directly employed — took the first of several heavy blows.

Budget airlines,” was my concise answer. I was thanked politely and told that the idea of allowing in low-cost airlines was on the agenda, but only when the national airline, Tunisair, was in good shape to compete.

Since then, things have got much, much worse for Tunisia. In March 2015, 20 tourists died in an attack on the country’s leading cultural collection, the Bardo Museum in Tunis. In June of that year, Seifeddine Rezgui gunned down 30 British sunbathers and eight other people at the Imperial Marhaba Hotel in Sousse.
