    Great traditional market but you must haggle
    If you like a market then this is a great place to visit Yes you do get a lot of vendors approaching you to entice you into their shops but as long as you are polite & friendly with them they will happily take a "no thank you" from you & move on. Yes you do have to haggle but that's part of the fun. Start with a low offer but make sure you stick to a price you're prepared to pay and most likely you'll get that price. Lots of love leather goods, jewellery, clothing / footwear, spices Worth spending a couple of hours taking in the sights and sounds

    Life in all it’s true colours
    A great few hours spent through the various alleys of market stalls and shops. So much on offer from souvenirs, to hand made craft ware, T-shirts, trainers, fruit and veg and even an indoor fish market You need your haggling skills on form as any purchase requires you to haggle. Everyone is so accommodating and if the price is not right for you then you can happily walk away only for the price to tumble to your price bracket. Need a break then stop off at one of the many little coffee shops and sample the local delicacies on offer.

    A fun introduction to haggling!
    This was not far from our beach resort, so we took a taxi there and back on a Friday morning, which was very affordable. We spent a little more than an hour going through the market and had our first experiences haggling. We later worked out we probably overpaid for a few items, but not outrageously. It was very hot in early July, but there was shade and icy refreshments being sold, and even some shops with air conditioning.

    Market wit baby
    We went to the market with a six month old in a carrier and an eight and nine-year-old and we felt very safe. It wasn’t that busy because we got there about 8:30 am. The taxi cost us 10 dinar at one way, but they wouldn’t take all five of us so you would need to get two taxis if there’s more than four.

    Not just a Friday market.
    We went to Neubul market on a Friday and also a Wednesday. We found the Wednesday market a lot more quieter, relaxed and cheaper. The Friday market had a lot of hussle and bussle and was very busy. The Wednesday was a much pleasurable day. There were a lot more 'fixed price' stalls and shops that were open that weren't open on a Friday. You could spend hours and hours There. We loved it!

    On a Friday morning in mid September it was busy and entertaining. Not a huge market but plenty of bags, shoes, frocks, pottery and souvenirs. It's worth the 15dinar cab ride from the hotel. Don't go unless you're prepared to haggle.

    Good Shopping and Authentic Market
    First it is a nice view to see the Old Town of Nabeul. There are a lot of little shops and you get a real bazaar feeling. They have shops for souveniers and tourist stuff, but also shops for local people. During our entire stay in Tunisia, it was the best shopping opportunity, prices were cheaper than elswhere, although you have to haggle. The choice was big. If you are tired, you can take a rest in a cafe. You can choose between traditional orientalic with tea and Arabic coffee or modern western style with espresso and latte macchiato.

    A Fun Walk in a Good Medina
    The Medina in Nabeul is a fascinating walk through all kinds of shops, bargains, and a great Medina for shopping. There is one good cafe in the Medina of Nabeul and it offered good food. The shop owners are really pushy and if you don't go into their shops some of the owners curse at you for not coming in. The shop owners tell you everything is "5 Dinars" but once you step in you see that everything is from 2-500 Dinars. It is nice place to walk and chat. Some of the fudge and candy shops offer a sample. Turkish delight is available in several shops.

The 3 of us , our son (11) went on a Wednesday to the market, got there for about 9:30am. Wasn't too busy as was told Fridays are rammed and not to go on an evening. So we made our way along, with other small side streets with more stalls, off the main street, which we also visited but tbh the shops are repeated, they are all pretty much selling the same thing and after a while it does get a little tedious. We didn't stop in a cafe or anything as we took bottled water but plenty of places and all looked fab. They do try and get you to go in their shops which is why I would say if you are shy and don't like being approached then don't go. If you don't like to haggle again don't go, as you will not enjoy it. My other half loves haggling, if he could do it in the UK he would. If you politely say no thanks they do say no problem and back off but you have to be firm about it. Our son had enough after about an hour so we only did a couple of hours and got a cab home, I got what I wanted which was a gold drinks tray and a gold necklace, both were good prices. Definitely worth a visit, we felt perfectly safe and welcome x
