sousse to pek?

Hi, going to sousse in about 3 weeks. Just want to know if pek is within walking distance from sousse? Ive heard pek is meant to be really nice and am now maybe regretting booking sousse instead! Any info would be great! Also how much money should we take as a couple for 11 nights b&b?

If the water is not to high you can walk along the beach... about 1.30.

You can also take taxi, about 5 dinar.

PeK is only a holiday resort and gives you no idea of real Tunisian live.

In which hotel are you staying in Sousse.

The money you will need depends on what you want to do during day and where you want to eat. I can survive on 10 dinar a day, but lot of people will need more ;-)

Staying at the orient palace. Do you mean it is an hour and a half to pek? I do wish we booked there as when we go it is over ramadan.. Does this mean no alcohol etc??

To walk it ?

aye maybe

That is what you asked

Kimberly

Ramadan wont impinge on tourist hotels serving alcohol

Don't worry;-)

And Sousse is fine and will be during Ramadan

Will there be taxis over ramadan? Saw a lot of posts saying that taxis dont run over it. Can we still buy it at the airport when we arrive?

There will still be alcohol in hotels and yes you will still get taxis, everything carries on basically as normal, the Tunisians still have to go to work to earn a living during Ramadan.

You may or may not find things like cafes etc close a little earlier so locals can go home and eat with their families after sundown.

Thanks for the replies! Just getting worried! Never been to tunisia before and am not sure what to expect. Is it much different to the usual brits holiday resorts?

Lol, well its not anything like what you will get in Spain or The Balearics or Party resorts of Greece!!

But you will get nightlife but not party central.

You will be fine.

I may sound paranoid but are taxis safe?! Also do you know any nice bars or restaurants near the orient palace hotel?
