Loved the bartering it was good fun, I was trying to explain to some of the shop keepers it was rude to say cheeky bugger and they should say cheeky monkey, it started to catch on much to our amusement.

A nice area to explore with old architecture and some hidden gems. Some of the sellers can be pushy but you just have to be firm but not necessarily rude with them.

This Kasbah is beautiful and could be full of charms without those shop owners who make tourist lives hell! You say hi and they will force you to get into their shops.

Great fun in this city during summer. Quite dull in winter. During summer, it becomes very lively with an amazing night life and good places to eat. Also, Carthageland in Yasmin Hammamet during summer is great. I would recommend 2 restaurants: le barberouse and le petite pecheur. The second is mid priced so always crowded and you have to wait...
