Tunisia: Shopping

Shopping in Tunisia offers an unusual variety of local craft and artwork, with silver, food and exotic spice, beautiful ceramics and carpets among the tourist favourites. Cash will generally be required with only major stores in large cities accepting cards.The many souks in around the country's ancient medinas in larger towns offer constant surprise and sheer variety but you will need to develop the art of haggling. Shoppers seeking familiar high-street brands and designer labels will largely be disappointed in even the major city shopping areas.
