Sousse Is An Old Tunisia City Tunisia has not been on frequent tourists’ maps for very long, due to various reasons, but it has made up for lost time, with some very attractive best hotels Sousse to stay at. These Tunisia hotels are in some of Tunisia’s best areas and are part of the Sousse Group. If you really want to visit Tunisia, choose between the months of May and October, as the Sousse weather is at its best between those dates. Mainly described as mild, Sousse weather can be very hot at times, or rainy and cold for winter. If you are wondering what language you need to have, Arabic can be used, but for commercial reasons, French is the preferred language, although you can use German also to make yourself understood. The Sahara Desert is one side of Tunisia, so hot winds come in from there on occasion. The religion is mostly Muslim and women visiting should wear jeans and tops that fit in with the locals. Entertainment is often on par with that of any other city, and the Sousse guide will recommend where to go and what to do. People who wish to visit Tunisia from Australia can get a visa on the ground when they land in Tunisia. Other countries may have to have their visas before they arrive, but you will find that in the Sousse guide, or check with a tourist agency. One thing is paramount though: you should have your vaccinations up to date before travelling anywhere abroad. Some infections or diseases may live in a country you are not familiar with, and it pays to have all your shots up to date. Being sick in a foreign country can be a very expensive process. Visitors to Sousse are encouraged to visit the old ports that still exist there. Some have been modernized, but others still have the old-style feel about them, such as when pirates lived around Sousse. Nowadays, you can go onboard what are called ‘pirate ships’, now used as tourist ships, and spend a day doing tourist things there. These include various marine adventures directed mainly at children and sightseeing. The massive Port El Kanttaoui is well worth a look, and you can have a very relaxed ride to there on a mini-train. Most of the Sousse group of hotels are very clean, neat and tidy, although slightly less in style than, say, American ones. Here, usually a 4-star hotel would be a 3-star in America or one of the developed countries. This is not to say they are any less attractive, or that the service is poor. It simply means that the standards in developed countries have developed more quickly than in these still rather out-of-the-way places. Prices are usually much lower than what you could expect in other tourist places, but you must be willing to haggle, as in most of the shopping areas, it is expected of you.
