Orient and modern hotels

Sousse, Tunisia

Sousse, Tunisia

It is no wonder why Sousse has become a favoured tourist destination. The place has "everything"; a stunning beach, good climate, a beautiful medina, hotels of all classes, good restaurants (try the fish!!!) and many options for daytrips.
All along the northern beach, modern hotels have been, and are still being, built. They all come in the same fashion: Hotel with bar, restaurant and swimming pool. If you cross the main road, you're right on the beach. The beach strip closest to the centre of Sousse is extremely crowded, mainly by Tunisians, coming here as full sized families. It's easy to get in contact with people here, and the attitude is easygoing.
