1. Re: marhaba beach hotel - sousse question?

If you think your partner is likely to attract unwanted male attention while out and about, then there are a few simple precautions...

- Dress sensibly, cover shoulders, and don't wear short skirts or anything tight.

- Wear a hat or tie long hair up.

- Wear sunglasses to avoid direct eye contact.

- Wear a ring on her wedding finger, any old ring'll do.

- Don't flirt, or engage in conversation with men. It can be seen as a "...come on".

- If you intend haggling in the markets, then learn the dos and donts beforehand.

Out of your message I understood you are both female or am I wrong....

In case you are and you would worry what Tunisian would think about you... Don't worry !

They would see you as 2 friends together on holiday and dressing and behaving modest will help but the man will still think you could do with their attention and try to get in touch..

Sunglasses don't stop them but it helps you because you can look at them without they see your eyes and it makes it easier to ignore them.

Hope you will enjoy it, Tunisia is a lovely country !

Gay relations between females are quite a taboo subject in Tunisia and doubt whether anyone will give you a second glance. As maenan stated the local lads will probably just see you as two girls and, to them, fair game. You will probably find gay male couples in your hotel - and again within the tourist areas no one takes much notice. You will have nothing to worry about.

have stayed while its true you will be ok as long as you only show affection as a friend 2each other but you will both get loads of locals after u even in that hotel they will think u both only there too meet men and if you let them know u gay couple then u both will get hassled more !! advise do not allow local to buy you any drinks even coffee as it viewed as a may be lol silly but true read tunisianloverat.com nb i enjoy sousse it ok all nightclubs are either next to hotels or in hotels where u are staying there are 2 marharba disco and la grotte lol most nightclubs are used as pick up joints and european pays the bar bills lol
