If you are planning a trip to Tunisia it will be well worth it, if you enjoy boiling hot sun and beautiful beaches then this is definitely a place to visit.
Here are the top 5 things to do in Tunisia:
- Yasmin Hammamet which is one of the more modern towns in Tunisia
- Hammamet Beach
- Visit Matmata to see where one of the Star Wars films was filmed
- Camel ride into the Sahara Desert is a must
- Roman Ruins
Even though Tunisia is a beautiful country and has some very nice people there are, of course, like all countries some things you need to be careful of.
There are quite a few pick pockets around so keep your personal belongs on you at all times and zipped up in bags.
You can also get a lot of shop keepers trying to hassle you into the shops which you do need to be careful of, do not go into the shops alone.
Please don’t let this put you off as the staff in the hotels are lovely as are the staff on the excursions which again you should arrange through your holiday rep even if you do pay a little more.
A good thing about the hotels is that most have a sectioned off piece of beach where you will not be hassled by the locals trying to sell you things, this makes for a relaxing day with sun, sea and sand.
In regards to the above information make sure you have a good travel insurance policy in place which covers you for personal possessions as well as cover for medical conditions. You may also like to be covered for cancellation and curtailment so check your policy requirements before buying.
