Is the exchange rate high/poor at Tunis Airport ?

by Mr.Emirates

from what I read, you cannot get Tunisians dinars outside of Tunis, neither you can take them with you outside the country.

I will be coming from France with few euros and many durhams (UAE currency).

1- Should I exchange the UAE durhams to euros here in France, then exchange the euros in Tunis to dinars? Just in case the UAE durhams rate is very poor in Tunis.

2- Should I exchange all my money at the airport? or exchange a little just for the taxi and then exchange the rest in town for a better deal?


Thanks

The rate is state controlled and is more or less the same everywhere for dollars and Euros, including the airport. "Exotic" currencies (like the UAE Dirham) are harder exchange and are at a much poorer rate.

Like Fluffy Bunny said already it does not make a difference where in Tunisia you exchange currency. The rate is the same everywhere. If you are exchanging a sizable amount make sure to keep your receipt so you can convert your unused Dinars back to another currency.
On a side note about taking the Taxis.
If you go to the taxis terminal downstairs you will be asked for astronomical fares. The best and most economical way would be to go upstairs on the departure floor and catch a taxi that is dropping off someone. make sure to ask the driver to put the meter.

Travel Tips for Tunis

Medina of Tunis

by miman

The medina of Tunis has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979. The medina contains some 700 monuments, including palaces, mosques, mausoleums, madrasas and fountains dating from the Almohads and the Hafsids periods.
These ancient buildings include:
-the Great Mosque (including the Muslim University and library)
- Aghlabid Ez-Zitouna Mosque ("Mosque of the Olive") built in 723 by Obeid Allah Ibn-al-Habhab to celebrate the new capital.
- the Dar-al-Bey, or Bey's Palace, is comprised of architecture and decoration from many different styles and periods and is believed to stand on the remains of a Roman theatre as well as the tenth century palace of Ziadib-Allah II al Aghlab. Shopping in Medina

Haggle when shopping it's a must!

by nina_z

If you shop in Tunise on the street or in markets do haggle for a better price. You're expected to do so and you'll offend the shop keepers if you don't or be considered a stupid tourist as they'll rip you off your money. It's fun, just try it. Always make the shop keeper tell his price first. It will be over the top. You then have to say a sum which is a third of his price. Usuallly, you won't settle for it but afer a few minutes of haggling you'll come to something acceptable for both of you. Don't be offended if they call you a criminal it's just the part of their fun and drama and don't hesitate to walk out of the shop if the shop keeper refuses to come up with a reasonable price. Most likely he'll come running after you with a better deal.

Belvedere Park

by brazwhazz

Belvedere Park is the largest park in Tunis, covering 110 hectares. It was established in 1892 on a hill of olive trees, but opened only in 1910 in order to allow enough time for the plants to grow. The park is a popular gathering place for both families and young couples. It is known as the "lungs of Tunis" due to the scarcity of green spaces in the city.

At the centre of the park is a koubba (Turkish pavilion) that provides an excellent view of the city of Tunis. According to our guide, the koubba is an excellent example of Tunisian architecture.

Beside Belvedere Park is a zoo. Much to our surprise, we saw a peacock that had escaped from the zoo walking around the park before flying back across the street... into the deer cage.

To reach Belvedere Park from the city centre, take Line 2 of the metro leger (toward Ariana) and get off at Palestine. Once you get off, go back and take a right on Mohammed V and follow the signs to Belvedere Park, which will be to your left.

I flew from Gawick to...

by Aragina

I flew from Gawick to Monastir. Which is the closest airport to Sousse.
from the airport you can get a bus, rather old an rickity to Sousse. If you are really adventurous you could always hire a jeep. I did but it cost me about 100 dinars a day. If you are really really adventourous you can get a camel but I dont suggest this form of transport :-)

Its all about doorways

by leffe3

As you wonder through the old city of Tunis, down narrow alleyways and through the various markets, the sign of wealth, at least from the outside, was the intricate and ornate doors. Typical architecture of the region hides what''s beyond - thick walls and these doorways are all that you see. Or, occasionally, look up and above ground level you will see intricate and ornate windows.
Interestingly, the particular door of the main picture is the entrance to the British Embassy - as you can see by the coast of arms above the door lintel.
