Tunisia: Hammamet

Going to hammamet in Tunisia, is a welcome break for any urban dweller.

This town has an urban look, however has a small roads with small houses on the sides. A walk on the road gives you enough oportunity to enjoy the open skies. The ful view of open skies is not possible for people who stay in metros of India. I visited this place twice in a week's time




It was not enough.

Normally, when you travel by bus, the bus drops you in the Hammemet center. As you walk towards the beach, you come across some beautiful houses, small hotels, some cafes and then a beach.

There is another part of the town, known as Yasmine Hammamet. This is newere Hammamet, which is developed as a touristic attaraction.

Once you are in Hmmamet, dont forget to take a touristic train to Yasmine Hammamet. A ride on this train is memorable.
