Tradicionalna vecernja zabava u Tunisu je gledanje trbušnog plesa. Plesacica je obicno mladjahna osoba zenskoga spola neutvrdjene visine i pozamašne gradje. Uvjet je da ima "balkone" za cistu peticu i bokove otprilike 120, jer kada ta zapleše sve to se trese da je oku milina.
Ko voli nek' izvoli.
I haven't had the opportunity to really enjoy myself during a Tunisian evening for a long time and finally we came upon this place on a Saturday night during my last stay.
Just so u understand where I am coming from, I don't enjoy closed parameters of a nigtclub anymore and I like to be able to move around. This place was open-aired, had the feel of a pub and had two areas where you could dance. And most important of all, the people were really fun.
For some reason that night all the places were overfilled so the cops went around at about 2:30 am to tell the clubs to stop the music for an early close to avoid any problems. Well we stayed seated waiting for the music to come back on. Hey we were on fire and we weren't ready to leave. point being we ended up singing and having most of the people around us join in with us.
''For me, for me formidableeee''
Tunisians are not, it seems, a very outgoing people. Not in the same way as we Swedes use the word outgoing anyway.(where it means going to the club or pub and dance and drink until you and everyone around you looks incredibly sexy).
Tunisia, being an Islamic country, is not very big on alcohol. There are tourist discos open during the main tourist season, and beer, wine and such are available in special stores, and most restaurants but you don’t travel to Tunisia for the wonderful nightlife.
I would like to point out, first of all, that this text applies mainly to Hammamet where we lived most of our time in Tunisia, and that it was during the low season. Maybe things get better if you time your trip better than us.
ZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz is a slightly unfair appraisal of Port El Kantaoui high life. I experienced was there was at the start of the season. It is almost entirely based in the hotels around the resort. Because most hotels only offer accommodation on a half or full board basis, holiday makers are more or less a captive audience come tea time. Many stoop to scare tactics, informing guests that it is dangerous to venture out after dark. This of course is a total fallacy. Like any resort, as long as you keep your wits about you and exercise some common sense, you will be perfectly safe. However as a result, Port El Kantaoui turns into a ghost town by night. Such a shame.
The only nightclub in Suisse. Entrance was about $5 per person.
What an experience! Almost no women in the club. Place gets busy with locals very quickly! If you are a woman, be ready to dancing surrounded by men only? Your dream might come true! :) However, I did not find experience pleasant becuase all men were trying to start talking to you... It could be quite annoying!
It's the main square with a huge fountain in the middle that lights up at night surrounded by lots of cafeterias and pizzerias. I'm sure this place will be buzzing in summer, I was there in March so there was not much happening here!! Discos are not very popular here in Tunisia, the most frequented discos would be those found in hotels... most hotels would have their own entertainment so don't expect to find it elsewhere! There is also a casino which looks quite good which is somewhere between Port el Kantaoui and Sousse.
Dress Code: Very relaxed! Tunisians hardly ever dress up, if you do dress up, the men are more likely to stare at you and ask to be traded for camels! haha I'm serious!!
Well as it is an Arabic country, and a different culture, I wasn't very much into going to clubs (there are some great ones in places like Sousse and Hammamet). In Tunis - there were a lot of places to drink tea at, where most of the population are men. A bit strange but it is a cool experience!
Have a tea with almonds - VERY GOOD! (though quite sweet)...
And as I was staying with students from around the World, our parties in the lovely garden of the Student dormitory were pretty fun!
The turkish cafè at the hotel La kasbah. There's generally not much nightlife in Tunisian towns and cities - so the most you can find is inside tourist hotels. At café maure you can sip delicious mint tea or turkish coffee, eat sweeter than sweet Tunisian pastries, and happily smoke nargileh. And because it's inside a hotel, it's respectable for women to go there alone.
Dress Code: It doesn't really matter. Tunisia is pretty informal anyway.
If your idea of nightlife is nightclubs and discotheques, Tunisia doesn't have a whole lot to offer, except in the more touristy centers like Sousse and Hammamet. However, you can have a wonderful night walk around many of the towns and spend some time in a cafe, drinking coffee, beer, or tea, smoking from a chica, and doing some great people watching.
There's not much nightlife in Tunisia, especially for a woman, outside the tourist resorts, therefore forget major boozing sessions, wild dancing nights and so on. Occasionally you can find a hotel with a hammam to sweat a bit - then sipped some mint tea while reading a good book. A few other times I managed to hook up with a nice Tunisian guy and we went to tea-houses to smoke nargileh and talk life and politics: having said this, they are not exactly a respectable activity for a lady (guys and nargileh) but being a foreigner you can sort of get away with minor hassles and come-ons.
Dress Code: Tunisian people are not a formal lot, thank goodness. But it's less hassle for a woman not to wear revealing clothes
Not a lot to say really most activity is centred around hotels so dont expect too much nightlife here 1 nightclub called the carawan but dont go alone and guard your wallet and anything else you treasure
Clubbing in Hammamet at the club *MANHATTAN* (Africa's best and most moderne club)
was my favourite spot.
Very large (really really large club).
Very good music, nice people to meet, tasty drinks and many dancefloors.the floors are made by glass.
Dress Code: flashy and sexy dress
Where we stayed in Hammamet, the nightlife was pretty quiet, so after nearly a week of drinking at the hotel bar, the hotel staff took me and my cousin across the road to the Palm Beach Hotel where they have a nightly disco.
Dress Code: Anything goes really - dress up or down
Not too much nightlife in the Sahara desert, unless you hit one of the oasisi that are prepared for tourists. There you can find some confortable bars, restaurants and places with music. In this particular time, however, we were not too interested in that front. In the picture you can see one of the members of our group, Maribel (Spain) reaching the oasis that was the end of the trip, after walking 15 kilometers on the desert sand that day. We had a couple of beers that night at the bar of the oasis.
British Bar, Found in the newer part of Hammamet (many investors are spending millions catering to the tourism industry at this moment)
This place holds a huge terrasse as well as a massive interior. From wine, narguila, tea, ice cream to sandwiches, you can have it all. The atmosphere is set on dancing, great music from all over including the well-loved arabic beats. There as many tourists as there are locals. Buy a jasmine for your special person, whether man or woman and enjoy the scene!
Dress Code: You're on holiday! Most are well dressed, but no suit and tie required.
