"Sidi Bou said is one of those..." Tunisia Tourist Trap Tip by ankx

Tunisia Tourist Traps: 97 reviews and 58 photos


Sidi Bou said is one of those tourist traps, that retains its charm no matter how many loud-talking tourists walk the streets. Sidi Bou Said is really just the one main road, going up the hill, ending in many fantastically situated cafés overlooking the Gulf of Tunis and the marina of Sidi Bou Said. connected to this one streets are short alleyways, some courtyards. Everything is well-kept with whitewashed walls and blue doors, windows and intricate metalworks. Streets have some vendors, selling handicrafts or sweets, but their business seems to run well, and they keep a low profile, as they have understood that keeping the atmosphere up, si the best way of marketing.
