It's lots of fun to wander in here. Yes, shop keepers want you to come and buy stuff--that is how they live. You have to bargain. Don't be shocked, it's part of the experience. Take your time and cut the price in half. Change the subject. Don't get too attached to any one object. Make like you are going to... More

Busy, colourful, a must for anyone shopping or who just wants a taste of Tunisian life. Go with the right mindset, enjoy it. Don't go if you are in a hurry! Beautiful buildings, a very traditional atmosphere. So much to see.

Typically quaint Arabic town but not much to see or do, perhaps because we were visiting in early December.

Dirty, Scary, Pushy. The whole area is the pits and the sheer volume of people claiming to be the chef from my hotel was incredible. I will never go back to Tunisia

Not much there! Good to pay to go in and look over the bay. However, unless you want to buy a load of stuff in the markets as well you'll have to work for your view by running the gauntlet of sellers.

Lovely food very well cooked especially a brick which is an egg cooked in batter. Lovely hotel. Be careful when shopping you will want to buy everything but remember to barter. Because there was blonde hair sticking out of my headscarf the arab boys wanted to touch it, One older arab offered my husband 9 camels to buy me, fortunately... More

Good fun but can be busy and hot.Ladies, please dress decently and do not go into shops on your own, you may be subjected to unwanted hassling. Good choices of holiday bargains & souvenirs, make sure you haggle a bit unless it has a price stamped on it.

Turn your wrist band inside out otherwise they will recognise your hotel and claim to be staff. Embrace it, it's how the sell
