Tunisia Things to Do: 757 reviews and 1,154 photos


If you like shopping, and if bargaining is your thing, the medina is the place to go. If you, however, find yourself paying overprice for everything from bottled water 'til pottery, there are state-owned shops with accurate pricing, for example the SOCOPA-chain. No one is hustling you, you take it at you own pace, and buy only what you want. On the other hand, that way you miss a whole lot of contact with the locals.

Directions: The SOCOPA in Sousse is situated in the enormous buildning of Hotel Abu Nawas Boujafaar, right down by the beach.
