Sentido Phenicia and local

As a smoker arriving from the Uk what are my best options? Do I bring cigarettes with me or are there places in and around the hotel to buy them? What sort of price are they? I have been trying to look online but because of the gap in travel a lot are pre-2015. Many thanks in advance guys and gals x

Honestly? Bring them with you. More or less every single pack you see on a street stall or someone is likely to be fake and wouldn't touch with a sharp stick...

In Hammamet just up from Medina there is a proper Tobacconist who sells many English Brands.

Obviously you have airport on the way home.

Really do not buy of the street though and not sure about Phenicia shop.

It's your call really.

If the hotel shop sell cigs.they should be ok.

Dont buy from street markets/stalls or hawkers on the beach/street.

Just like here,well known brands can be snide.

And the sellers i mention above will most certainly not be selling you the real McCoy.

Lost count of the number of times i have warned (and stopped)fellow hotel guests on buying from beach hawkers;-).

International brands(UK and USA) are popular with Tunisian smokers.

Local cigs.like the brand Mars will usually be ok and cheap.

As you are travelling outside the EU,you will be able to get your favourite brand before you get to your hotel

Duty Free .......

1/ Your departure airport.

2/ On the flight.

3/ Arrivals Hall at Enfidha Airport.

Same of course on your return.
