If you want a few hours away from your hotel in Tunisia visit the centre of sousse. It really is another world walking around the madina and visiting the museum with its task tower where you can get some great photos of the the whole city.

I like to look at other cultures whilst on holiday,but as soon as you step outside of your hotel it is continuous hassle.From taxi drivers ,shop keepers ,café owners they are at you to buy or ener there establishment. You cannot enjoy just looking.
