What to Pack When Traveling to Tunisia
Heading to Tunisia on vacation means packing cleverly and carefully to ensure your holiday is as comfortable as possible. Tunisia is filled with historical sights, cultural attractions, natural beauty and spectacular beach resorts.
Packing for every experience is essential from the shoes you choose to the clothing you place in your suitcase.
You will want to ensure you pack a pair of sturdy and comfortable shoes that you can wear for long periods whether you’re camel trekking in the Sahara Desert or spending the day making your way through the narrow passageways of one of the Medinas.
With so much to do and see, your shoes should be comfortable and durable. Ladies be careful of strappy sandals which may not be the best choice when exploring the gorges and mountainous areas.
You’ll want to pack plenty of light and loose fitting clothing. Cotton pants and skirts are great additions to your suitcase enabling you to keep cool on those hot summers days.
Remember women should not be seen without being properly dressed, so no shorts, vests or cut off tops except on the beach or around the pool. Cotton trousers, skirts below the knee and t-shirts or blouses that cover your shoulders are a good and practical choice.
There are magnificent picture perfect moments in Tunisia, have your camera fully charged and ready to be snapped away to ensure you don’t miss a second of your vacation.
Tunisia can get very hot especially when travelling more inland towards the desert. Be prepared with a good sun cream of at least SPF15 and a sun hat to protect your face.
Carry bottled water with you at all times and keep sipping it to ensure you don’t become dehydrated.
Keep cash on you in case you see that souvenir you want or you want to stop for something to eat at one of the cafes. Not everywhere in Tunisia accepts credit cards so be prepared.
Packing all the right things should ensure that you have a Tunisia tour that you will always remember!
