Preparing your trip to Hammamet: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

Hammamet open-air theatre 1. The local beach is quite calm and has a mild slope to water, so you can relax there even with children. It should be noted that there are no hotels in Hammamet located on the first line. Hotels and coast are divided with the promenade.
2. Going to the beach, don’t take valuables without special need. Don’t leave clothes and bags unattended; be attentive and monitor your personal belongings in crowded places.
3. Vacationers aren’t recommended to buy fruits on the beach, as well as take drinks with ice. Fruits bought in the market or in the store ought to be washed thoroughly. Use only purified bottled water, which is sold in all grocery stores, to drink.
4. You necessarily have to bargain at local markets and in private shops, as it will significantly reduce the price of the item. Bargaining is irrelevant in shopping malls and supermarkets. To make it easier to pay you need to stock up a sufficient amount of small denomination bills in advance.
5. In restaurants and cafes be sure to leave a tip for good service; it will be greatly appreciated. Tip depends on the place; it is usually 10% of the bill. You can leave a small tip for a maid at the hotel, but it should only be given in hand, as attendants would not dare to take money left in the room. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
6. Despite the fact that Hammamet has fairly loose standards of conduct for tourists, you should be attentive to the local culture. Don’t walk around historic areas of the city in low-necked and bright clothes; bright dresses and bathing suits are appropriate only on the beach and at the hotel.
7. It is inappropriate to appear on streets in an intoxicated state, as it will be regarded as contempt of the local traditions and a gross violation of public order. Don’t eat as you go, as it is considered a sign of bad manners; this should be done only in designated areas.
Hammamet would surprise its guests with a variety of dining places; all popular culinary traditions are represented at the resort. The Le Barberousse restaurant is known far outside the … Open
8. Fans of photography should be extremely cautious too. You can shoot locals with photo or video camera only with their prior consent; it is prohibited to take pictures of women wearing a yashmak.
9. All local pharmacies have doctors on duty; their services are completely free of charge. You can ask them for the first aid and advice on issues of interest. Blood pressure measuring is free in any pharmacy; if necessary, the doctor can give an injection.
