"locals" Ile de Jerba Warnings Or Dangers Tip by chillysista

Ile de Jerba Warnings and Dangers: 9 reviews and 7 photos

As in every touristic country u're travelling in, locals can be boring always trying to sell you something.
But, as you all know, most of them live on tourism so let them know you're not interested whith a:"non, choukrane" that means "no thank's".
In small cities such as Houmt Souk, beware of the so sympathetic merchant saying:remember me? We saw at the hotel! offering you a wonderfull mint tea and persuading you to buy a wonderfull handmade carpet.They're wonderfull, but cost even more than if u buy the same in France.
