RE: wheres good 2 go

Depends on what you like Places such as Dougga and Sbeitla off great ruins to walk about. However for partying Hammamet and Sousee seem to have the lions share of nightclubs and Discos though I am sure that their will be some good time to be had around Skanes as it is a popular location. However it may be worth doing some recon during the day to see if you fancy it and to get your barings.

Monastir has a lovely old medina and also some sights such as Borguibas tomb etc.

If you are using a Taxi to get there ask the Hotel to book it for you and if possible get them to book the taxi for your return no doubt you will be fine but like in any new place its always best to play it safe.

RE: wheres good 2 go

Hi candi,

Well if i'm you i would try to rent a car, because Skaness it's between Sousse and Monastir, and it's a touristic zone, so to get to sousse or Monastir you will need a mean of transportation, if you will rent a car you can move easily between Skaness, Sousse and Monastir, in sousse there's a lot to do, and a lot to see, the medina, Port Kantaoui ... There's a lot of bars and disco if you are interested, and Monastir, it's quiter than sousse, i can say more romantic than sousse, you can to the medina also in Monastir ( very nice to see) you can go to Marina Monastir, very nice harbor, you can visit the Mausoleum of Bourguiba, and the Rebat etcc

A month ago i've been in Monastir, in the Marina of Monastir ( you won't miss it ) there's an old restuarant, from the outside it looks mexican, i've been there 3 times during my last stay in Tunisia, go to the restaurant he has a toooooo nice, delicious food :) especially the Mexican Steak ohhhhhh :) You gonna like it man :)


Cheers

I think the most known Water Park , is Aqua Palace, and it's in Sousse, closed to Kantaoui, it's a ver nice place ... it's beautifull there and you can spend a beautifull day in the water.. all kind of swimingpools ... it's very nice :)

RE: wheres good 2 go

hi all hope you are all doing ok!

we are going tunisia in 3 1/2 weeks :)and staying at sahara beach hotel, could anybody please advise if there are any suitable trips for a 5yr old boy please? we were thinking of going on the 2 day sahara desert trip but didn't know whether this would be suitable. Also how far away is the aqua park in PEK from Skanes.

Thanks in advance for any replys

Sahara Beach, in Skanes ... to go to sousse it's something like 15 minutes with the car, Taxi ... and to Kantaoui it's something like let's say 15 minutes also , so it's about an half hour to be in Aqua Palace :)

Skanes holidays are popular with Golf, watersports, tennis, horse riding, camel rides and boat trips in addition to the different festivals and tours in the region.
Really i like that area , it is very calm and different , there u can feel relaxed and enjoy more activities.
if u have visited this area, tell me about your experiences:)

Hmm...i agree,i stayed at the Houda golf and beach club,and beyond the hotel there was nothing but 1 bar,1 pizza place and a gift shop!
yes there is the camel coach nearby...me,my husband and children all did this,but my son's camel collapsed,with my boy still on it!!!!
There was a golf course opposite our hotel,but never once saw anyone there.
If you stay in skanes,you need to be prepared to travel to see anything,although the buses run very frequently and are very cheap :D

The Houda was fine for what we were looking for ... we only went to Sousse for a couple of days in August ... and Monastir in April ...

We were really just between the hotel bars and the Safari Bar ... ;)

I hardly ate ... then again I wasn't hungry, I just drank (mostly water before anyone mentions being an alky) ;) ... but, my pal ate like a horse ... lol

Gonna go into Sousse next time, I think ... the Thalassa Sousse looks nice ... or maybe try Hammamet ...

Hmm...the Houda has closed down for re-furbishment now,but hopefully when it re-opens around april time,there will be some big changes....my children were ill for 3 weeks after we got home,they had some kind of stomach infection and were so poorly...my step mum even ended up in hospital with it!
We never ate anything there after the first 5 days...and all of us lost so much weight it was shocking...:(
