Paying a visit to the Medina Convention Centre in Hammamet, Tunisia, is a real delight. The centre rests between deserts and greenery, making the landscape around it truly unique. Major events in Hammamet include the annual Independence Day Festival every March 20th, celebrating Tunisia's independence from France.
Expect Hammamet hotels to serve dishes true to Muslim customs. This means no pork, but this won't limit you in the slightest. Indulge in authentic tagines that you won't forget. Many restaurants also serve variations on Western food, for those who enjoy the comforts of home. Venture into local markets to find street vendors, but do exercise caution when eating poultry or fish; opt for the wonderful assortment of beef when taking in the street culture.
Hammamet's shopping scene is rustic. Most Hammamet hotels are close to a souk, so bring your haggling skills and pick up a real bargain. When experiencing the vast array of souveniers and trinkets, be sure to exercise your haggling skills only on the goods you are committed to buying, or else the enthusiastic local vendors may not be too pleased.
Water fans should enjoy Hammamet's notorious beaches and the beautiful, clear waters in which you can snorkel and swim. Camel rides are available up and down the beach, which is a very unique experience you should be sure to capitalize on. Take a walk along the town's waterfront and take the time stop for some refreshments in one of the roadside restaurant. Embarking on a sunset walk is always ideal.
The Citrus Golf Course is the crowning glory of Hammamet sports. Golf veterans should expect unique conditions, but can look forward to the patrons taking good care of them. The golf course in Hammamet has a pitch and putt course for beginner golfers as well as driving ranges.
