  • Algeria – Kingdom of Grassland in Alpha
    Algeria, a republic in the north of Africa, has its north side bordering on the Mediterranean. The tourism resources in Algeria are abundant, where seven natural and cultural attractions are listed as UNESCO World Heritage site. In Algiers, the capital of Algeria, there exist famous Notre Dame d’Afrique, 319 mosques and many museums. The golden beach of the Mediterranean in the north bears a pleasant climate. In the south, there are vast Sahara, plateaus, snow mountains, and quite a few ruins of ancient Rome. Why not take your UnionPay cards (card number starting with 62) to accept the natural gift in Algeria.
