TRAVELING TO TUNISIA – FIRST STOP OF AFRICA
Cathedral of St Vincent de Paul
Old Town Medina – Check out the view @ Panoramic View Café
Sidi Bou Said – this is a super beautiful town – (Day Trip is more than enough).
Carthage – Super Historical Site (1-hour maximum) A must try delicacy that looks like a doughnut called Bambaloni
Café du Souk (Tea/Coffee Place in a very good environment, there was a few movies that were filmed in this place before) Restaurant El Abed (Good for Lamb Couscous)
Grilled Fish @ La Goulette (The entire street is full of it – they usually come in a dinner set with a fixed price)
Tunisian Food @
Dar Fatma or Dar El Jeld Lablabi @ Beb Jdid – Street Food but needs to be extra careful, as I got very sick from it but I gain friends for a lifetime.
Djerba Houma Souk (The Market for shopping)
Djerba Marina (Beautiful scenery of Djerba Port)
Djerbahood – lots of graffiti (Find a way to get a local guide on a bike – it’s amazing artists all over the world) Lac Seguia – beautiful view of the Lake!
Most Eisley Catina (Starwars Set) – not a lot of people know about this.
Brik!! Super quick to make and delicious (
Vegetarian Recipe)! You may also try this in Tunis.
Café Patisserie, Houma Souk (Super famous for Tunisian to have coffee)
Djerba Rice – A MUST TRY! Taste really good – a little spicy but a very interesting texture of rice.
Sunset @ La Turquoise Café (Great place to hang out and see the sunset)
Sunset @ Cubana Café (Most beautiful scenery of SunSet towards the ocean)
Hotel Marhala (Worth the value – can’t seem to book online – but you may email/call them up)
SOUSSE & MONASTIR
Port El Kantaoui, Sousse (Have a good stroll walking and getting lost here)
Salt Lake & Factory (on the way to Monastir)
La Falaise, Monastir (The only beach most locals hang out)
Ribat of Monastir, Monastir (One of the iconic things to do in Monastir – the Islamic defensive structure).
Bourguiba Mausoleum, Monastir (Outstanding monumental grave in Monastir)
Marhaba Royal Salem (I would rate it 3/5) – would highly recommend staying in the area of Port El Kantaoui, Sousse
One of the most popular and affordable forms of transportation is called
Louage. To head to any other cities in Tunisia, head down to the Station Bab Saadoun to catch one. They have a system in which once the van is filled – they will depart. It all depends on your luck. The best thing is to go with a mindset that you will have to wait all day. To walk around the town area – the trams/trains travels pretty much everywhere!
