Went here with an open mind as I always do anywhere I go and try looking at it from their way of life but just wasn’t thrilled by it i felt safe there don’t get me wrong I was glad to get back to the country as I was at Hammamet before and I had a better experience there the town was just different

You can find anything you want. They say a price and you have to undergo that price. You can get something for the 1/3 price of the total price they say. However, you have bear with the dirt, smell and crowd.

Love markets but not this one. The Medina for me was a waste of time. Stalls selling rubbish, very smelly, constantly hassled and shop keepers very unfriendly.

Large department store at entrance of Medina also really bad. Bags are searched and then taped up on entry. Staff follow you around the store and there are people who are also clearly staff but who are pretending to be shoppers themselves who also follow you around. On the surface the store looks great with several floors selling a variety of goods but staff extremely rude and be aware to check your goods before buying as staff will try and con you into buying faulty items.

Also be aware - you may be approached by a male in the Medina stating he is a waiter who works in the hotel you are staying in. He will try to have a chat with you and then he would like to show you around. This is a con trick. Do not go.

Would not recommend a visit to the Medina
