Travel Tips from people who've been to Sousse
dont be afraid to haggle with the locals in the souk,you can grab yourself a bargain plus have a great laugh.tunisians are very hospitable and friendly people.
It's very hard for Americans to not make eye contact and smile, even at strangers.We feel we are being impolite if we do not. However, a woman making eye contact and smiling is perceived by Tunisian men as comming on to him. Practice looking at people's faces without looking them in the eye. Noses, chins, and cheeks are good areas to focus on instead. Good custody of your eyes and conservation of your smile can go a long way to avoiding unpleasant to dangerous situations.
When in Sousse, try to get a hotel in Port el Kantaui. A bit less oriental, a bit more Mediterranean-style. Great marina, nice restaurants and bars. Don't miss a local delicacy - roasted almonds with sugar and cocoa! They sell it in the street, it's cheap and delicious!!! Taxi to the Sousse market (city centre) is cheap and accessible from almost everywhere, so you don't have to be stationed there to fully enjoy it.
