If you like to have designer looking goods ie handbags, belts, t shirts etc this s the place to go without too much hassle. It's like being in a big department store in England but the guards give you the eye.

Be prepared to be hassled within a inch of your life! Too much for the wife after about 20 minutes. Bargains to be had if you can be bothered to put up with the constant attention and suggestions of things that you never even knew you wanted!

ok - but better elsewhere. Handbag started at 200 - got it for 40 but in the fixed price supermarket they were 35-45 anyway. Converse/allstars - very poor copies. They get stroppy if you catch them out and haggle too hard

Most of the same shops sell the same stuff and most is tat. There are nice souvenirs to be found but you have to haggle and be prepared for constant high pressure tactics. Its not intimidating and 'no, thank you' should work but you will say it a lot and it gets tiring and stops being fun relatively quickly. The... More

Very crowded, lots of locals who don't do personal space. Very pushy and won't queue. This was the new medina with the waterpark. Very dirty.

It might have been nice to look around the markets without sellers saying they recognised us from the hotel, that they were waiters, and wanted to show us the best places to shop. They didn't work at the hotel. It would have been easier to get rid of a rash than these guys!

Interesting but good fed up with the constant hassle & hated all the fake stuff on sale. The winding streets were picturesque & I loved the ornate doors.

This is a tiny medina compared to nearby Sousse but it is worth a visit if you are staying in Yasmine Hammamet. Here you will find carpets, ceramics, jewellery etc at very reasonable prices if you can stand your ground and haggle. Usually you can pay about a third of the asking price. The adjacent Kasbah is an attractive landmark... More
