Tunisia – Hammamet Travel Photos (PART 1)


I am excited to be back, and glad to be back into the blogging world after my 2 week break away from all you beauties! I’ve really missed you all. I’ve been on a holiday to Tunisia the past week and wanted to share with you all my travel photos!

This post will be a bit different to my usual posts, as I mainly focus on fashion and beauty, but I will definitely follow up in upcoming posts on my Holiday outfits and beauty purchases I’ve purchased from the Duty Free at the airport < ahh the joys of traveling is the Duty free :D!!!

I travelled to Hammamet in Tunisia, it’s known for being the St. Tropez of Tunisia, a beautiful city surrounded by sandy beaches,ย Sunbathing, al fresco dining. and late-night discos that is the way of life in Hammamet. Located on the fertile Cap Bon Peninsula, it’s about 40 miles south of Tunis, the bay front resort is surrounded by verdant hills and citrus groves. But there is more to Hammamet than the Beaches! Surrounded picturesque bazaars and markets the medina (old city) with walls that date to 1500. You are bound to pick up a few beautiful bargains whilst wondering around the displays!!!

I’ve wanted to share with you all pictures from my time in Hammamet, I hope you enjoy the travel photography! Starting from my Journey at London Heathrow Airport, where it was a cold, rainy morning to being welcomed by a 28C temperature at Tunisia’s main airport, Carthage Airport!!!


We rested on our first day in Hammamet, and explored around the streets, the beach, and the resort! We stayed in the lovely Hammamet Garden Resort and it’s a beautiful haven and spa resort!



We visited the Old city (Medina) the next day & were greeted with streets full of sparkly bazaars and hidden market stalls. Walking inside the Old city, you feel the history surrounding you!!! I was given a chandelier hat to wear by the locals ๐Ÿ˜€ (for picture purposes only) Dammmn I wanted to keep it, and I also got a Henna Tattoo with my name in Arabic ๐Ÿ™‚ !!!




There will be a following blogpost that will continue with my travel photos from Hammamet :)!!! Stay Tuned ๐Ÿ˜€

|| Travelling to Tunisia ||

Travelling to Tunisia on your first time, you must ensure you have a spare 30 Tunisian Dinar (eq ยฃ10.50) with you on the way back to the airport as you will need to purchase a visa from the local bank stands within the airport to enter the passport control!

Always bargain in markets, don’t be afraid to ask around for different prices! The more you seem interested in a product, the more they will want out of it. But walking off and giving yourself time to plan whether you want to spend the money or not on a particular item will enable the seller to negotiate a better price that will suit both of you!

Traveling around from Hammamet to the surrounding areas Medina (Old City) & Yasmine Hammamet (Marina) will cost you about 5 Tunisian Dinar (eq. ยฃ1.70) by taxi – they’re both about 15 minute drive from the Hammamet area and don’t let them charge you more! They’ve tried to charge us more (me and my mum) but we always paid 5!!!
