Tips

  • Dress modestly when traveling outdoors and cover your knees and shoulders when visiting religious sites.
  • The capital city of Tunis is more liberal but southern Tunisia is quite conservative.
  • Souks are a good place to pick up souvenirs such as leather goods, wood work, pottery and handicrafts but be prepared to bargain and haggle for a reasonable price.
  • Carpets and rugs are a good buy in the markets of Kairouan.
  • Sample mint tea, kebabs, salads, fruit juice, fresh seafood, French bread and local varieties of wine – all of which are available at reasonable prices.
  • Consider an exclusive photography tour which covers all the photogenic highlights of the country.
  • The import/ export of local currency are prohibited but there’s no restriction on the import of foreign currency.
