Depends where you stay

The reason I chose Tunisia for a holiday was that I was thinking about taking more adventurous holidays but wanted to test the water first and try somewhere a little bit different from my usual destinations - the Greek Islands, Canaries, Spain, etc. I wanted to see how I would fare in a country...

“"Come and have a butchers!"”

So different to anywhere I have ever been

Death by yellow cabs!

About this time last year, my parents decided to book a family holiday for the summer. They went into the local travel agents, knowing roughly how much they wanted to spend and that we wanted somewhere hot, and came out with a holiday booked to Tunisia. ABOUT TUNISIA Other than knowing roughly...

“Hotel Phenicia in Hammamet”

published 18/12/2007

Good value, nice hotel

lack of facilities

Me and my husband stayed in The Hotel Phenicia in Hammamet at the end of October this year. i think it cost approximately £342 with Thomsons all inclusive basis. Accomodation The rooms are very clean and quite spacious. The rooms are numbered in the 1000s even though there are not 1000s of rooms...

Male attitude to women (it is only understandable ...

I've been going to Tunisia since I was 7 and love the place for a different reason each time I go. Most recently (1998) I enjoyed the fact that I could afford to stay in 5 star comfort for the cost of a 3 star in Spain. More important than that point - Tunisia is about as far removed from the...

Not for me

Tourism in the country has lots of potential

Everybody is money hungry.

I have read some pretty disparate reviews for peoples' experience in the country and it seems that people are divided into two separate camps: those not on a budget or who travelled and those who stayed put at a hotel most of the time. I recently went on a one week tour of the country which, as...

everything you could wish for in a holiday

nothing - the bad things are just a state of mind

Tunisia: historical entralling mysterious DO NOT go to Tunisia if: You are typically English and expect everything to be done “just so”, this is not the place for you! However, if you have an open mind, a willingness to learn about a new culture and like adventures, enjoy sightseeing as well as...

We stayed for a week in the Hotel Phenicia in Hammmamet, as part of an Airtours package. We paid about £330 each which included flights and half board at the hotel. Accomodation The rooms in the Phenicia appear to be all twin-bedded. We didn't specifically ask for a double, but nor did I see any...

In May this year we decided that we would go for a week’s holiday in Tunisia. I used to work in Monastir as a travel rep so we thought it would be a good idea to stay in Hammamet as I’d only visited it for one day during my stay. Colin had never been to Tunisia and I hadn’t been...

+Kairouan, The Great Mosque and a bit of Haggling+ An Anniversary Treat Having decided to give ourselves a little anniversary treat, myself and my boyfriend, Mark, thought it would be nice to get away for a bit, and go find some warm winter sun. Flicking through the brochures we found a lovely...

oh that damn haggling - and the beggars

I had always fancied going to Tunisia for a holiday - but for some reason we had never got around to it. We'd been all across the Mediterranean, the Canaries, USA and obviously Britain, but Tunisia...well, I just don't know why. So we finally took the plunge and encountered all the Sun, Sea and...

5 star hotels at 3 star prices

the locals hassling you

The first time I went to Tunisia was in 1977, my first time ever abroad and I was 20. It was a big culture shock. I have been 4 or 5 times since then, and it remains one of my favourite places to travel to. It has changed lot since 1977. I stayed in a hotel called the Dar Khyam in Hammammet. A...

Same old tourist shops, illness, storms!

I’ve just returned after to Ciao after a couple of weeks away in North Africa and I feel that its been long enough to be a bit more objective about the whole thing and do an op on my time there. The tans now fading and the pictures have returned and its time to sum it all up! We flew in to...

Tunisia is a loverly area to visit. Women often worry about travelling alone to different countries, but this is what I was doing. My husband brought and booked this loverly trip for my birthday. I did not know where I would be staying until I arrived at the destination. I was booked up as half...
