This was a fantastic Souk with as many locals as tourists. Narrow paths between the "stalls" and a real mix of produce / products. Shoes , Spices, you name it. Just be strong, as with most countries in the Middle East / Egypt, when they...More

We wanted to go and check out the market, but about 15 minutes later we left because of all the scams and annoying locals who wouldn't leave you alone.

Me and boyfriend have just booked a holiday to Tunisia staying at the Radisson Blu hotel in august, but have had someone tell us about the trouble going on there at the moment. We are a bit worried about whether this will be a problem in the area we are staying in, hotel says it's 10 minutes away from Homut Souk? Would love to hear some advice/information about this town and even the hotel we are staying at?
