  • Medina

    Medina is traditional Tunisian market a very busy place with lots of people during both day and night. It usually has network of corridors and is situated in the basement of the complex of buildings. Medina of Nabeul is pretty clean, comparing to other Medinas, and yet it is far of the western standards.

  • Horesy horesy

    A fair few horse drawn traps to go on, decorated with flowers and the like. As always I was concerned as to the welfare of the horses - but there was nothing to make me think they were mistreated.We did end up on one - purely to get our kids away from the constant harassment of the vendors. The trip didn't set my world on fire and it didn't...

  • Doors

    When strolling around, one of the first things you'll noticed are this in particularly interesting doors of the houses. Basicly, there are two or three types of the doors; those made of iron which are adorned by minted arabesque motifs, and wooden doors mostly coloured in red with frames in olive green or light blue colour. Besides the ornamented...

    Nabeul is near Hammamet and you can get there with the bus. It takes about 20 min to get there from North Hammamet and costs around 1-1.5 TD.The biggest problem is that the bus stops in Hammamet, especially in North Hammamet are not marked properly. That's why we missed the bus. Actually we wanted to go to South Hammamet with the bus, we missed it...

Nabeul Local Customs

  • Yasmine flower

    When strolling around, you'll see a lot of men with yasmine flower behind their left ear. If you ask for an explanation you'll get different answers. First what I was told, this is the sign which says the young guy is ready to get married and searching for a wife. Then I saw not only young guys wearing it, look at this picture.The truth is, fresh...

  • Visiting Mosques

    Many Asian and African countries, including Tunisia, are predominantly Muslim, so the religious sites you are most likely to encounter, are, predictably, mosques. This is a brief tip of advice, written from the point of view of a non-Muslim, female traveler (yours truly!!!):- Do dress modestly, covering arms, legs, shoulders and the like, no...

Nabeul Warnings and Dangers

  • Hammamet scam

    We also found the Medina impossible and left as soon as possible-and we also were tricked by the "I'm a waiter in your hotel" trick.A scam we nearly fell for was being approached right after the rep meeting in the hotel foyer by a man wearing an ID badge saying he was employed by the tour operator to give free tours of Hammamet because guests did...

  • Horse trap!

    With our youngest child in tears from the constant wave of vendors trying to drag him out of our arms and into their shops we went on a horse trap ride to try to get some peace. It all started off ok, a trit trot around town. But then our driver took us to the outskirts of town to a large pottery factory. The workers all stopped working and crowded...

  • Nabeul - Enough already

    When we visited Nabeul our children were 2yrs & 3yrs at the time. In their money-hungry efforts to get us to their stalls and into their shops the vendors tried to use our kids. They were literally grabbing at them and trying to drag them away from us to their items for sale.They were literally trying to prize them out of our arms so up onto our...

Nabeul Tourist Traps

It's worth going just as long as you expect it to be a tourist trap!We went on the "market day" buy hey - every day is market day - market day with marked up prices!!!If you get a bus there direct from your hotel the chances are your driver will stop just out side of Nabeul at a pottery shop so you...

  • Carpets and "carpets"

    There are carpets and "carpets", depend on weather you buy it in the carpet stores or from the street wendors. Every street weondor will try to convince you that his carpets, even those which cost 100 dinars only, are of wool origin and hand-made. One more warning, when in Medina, never trust to those guys who "recognize" you as the guest of the...

  • Selling Skills

    Tunisians are very resourceful salesmen.My favourite were the young men that will approach you in the street, greet you and ask if you remember them, you tell them no and they then tell you that they served you breakfast in your hotel that morning! You apologise for not recognizing them and they tell you that its ok and they shake your hand.This...

Nabeul What to Pack

  • aliante1981's Profile Photo

    by aliante1981 Written Jan 15, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Miscellaneous: Travels to places like Tunisia involves a lot of fighting the heat, especially if you, like me (I am still surprised as to why I did that), go there right in the middle of the summer. Here’s a list of useful items to take:

    - Hats and other covering: Large brimmed hats that provide head covering and some shade. For women, they are also a proof of modesty, welcomed when visiting old churches and mosques. Scarves and the like covering shoulders and arms can keep the sun off during treks. A cloth hat or scarf can be soaked to help keep the head cool.

    - "Squeeze Breeze": this is a water bottle with a sprayer and a battery-operated fan attached. The beach toy to take with you!

    - Sun block: While sun blocks may be purchased in Tunisia, people tend to prefer sticking with their own favourite brand (the skin, too, ‘gets used’ to it), and there’s not guarantee you’ll find it on the spot. So take your own, if you have preferences!
