The Blue and White town is located in the north of Tunis, Tunisia's capital, and is one of Tunisia's gateways across the sea to Europe. The reason why it is called "Blue and White town" is because this town is located on the cliff of the Mediterranean Sea, all the houses are only two colors, white walls, blue doors and Windows. When it comes to blue and white towns, many people probably think of Saint Ni in Greece first. But when you reach the foot of Sidi Bouzayd and look at the blue and white eyes set against the Mediterranean light, smell the faint sweetness of the mint tea, and look at the Arab children who occasionally weave through the streets of the town trying to sell you a floral blanket, you realize that it is different. Why many people call it the "best place to propose" and why it was named the "World's top 10 outsiders", these titles are not in vain. The TGM, a light rail from Tunis Marine, takes about 40 minutes to reach this small town on the cliffs of the Mediterranean Sea and is open all day
