"Don't get ripped off" Sidi Bou Said Tourist Trap Tip by nyonnetti

Sidi Bou Said Tourist Traps: 3 reviews and 2 photos


The market at the base of Sidi Bou Said is fun to shop in, but beware of the merchants being overly pushy. They wouldn't let up! If you so as much as look at something they will follow you and pester you with negotiations until you get out of the market.

Unique Suggestions: It is fun to shop in the market- if you like something than negotiate. Stick to what you want to spend and the merchants will come down substantially. My friends found a mosaic that they wanted to buy. The merchant was selling it for 100 Euros. They ended up getting it for 30 American dollars! So if you are willing to walk away, you probably can get the price you want!
