Review of Medina of Hammamet

Reviewed August 21, 2014

A collection of small shops run by very good salesmen selling tourist tat. Go to a shop up the road for the same tat but cheaper

The market was just as you would expect, very samey and lots of locals trying to get you to buy from them. Didn't feel under pressure though.

I could not believe the hassle we got when we went into the medina, they would not leave you alone it is very intimidating they would get so much more business if they left you to browse without being pushy.

Really interesting to visit but you have to be able to say no a lot as traders will try to get you to buy anything and everything but haggle as this is fun and you can get some good bargains. Worth a visit

I think whether enjoy it here or not is simply down to whether or not you enjoy haggling, we didn't and felt very uncomfortable about being hassled at every turn - this is obviously a cultural difference and nothing against the Tunisian people. A very beautiful place but don't think I would go again.
