Evening entertainment and excursions.
Save

I have been to Sousse 3 times but not since May 2015 and never stayed in PEK. I'm going there just after Easter but the company we're going with this time just do flights and accommodation. My questions are 1. Is there anything to do or see in the evening outside of hotel entertainment? and 2. We're hoping to go further afield to see Hammamet, Carthage& Dougga and I was wondering how easy it would be to see them via trains and taxis, so we can take our time, instead of formal excursions?

Thank you in advance to anyone who responds and to anyone who has taken the time to doso with other questions I've asked in the past.

Hi Lee

If you indicate the hotel that could be of help.

Pek from North to South is a fair distance

https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attractions-g297952-Activities-Port_El_Kantaoui_Sousse_Governorate.html

Of Course, Sousse is not too far South and yellow cabs from Pek wont be dear.

Wee fishing village just north of Pek is worth a wee visit.

Hergla is the name. Wee video

To do Hammamet and the other places you mention./

Car with driver for the day . i would do and have done a few times.

Recent thread on it

Hope the links help a bit in deciding !

Enjoy Pek!

Slainte

!Wee tip

Search bar above your post is good for finding information.

Just type keyword/s like "car with driver " or "carthage".. etc

Then check by relevance/date !

Thanks. I have been back and fourth between PEK and Sousse a number of times, both on foot and by taxi but because of the time since my last visit I was hoping someone who'd been there more recently may know what's around as far as evening entertainment, if anything or what may be mentioned in older reviews but may have closed since.

As far as travel, I'd rather not be stuck in a car for too long because I sometimes get travel sick, so that's the reason I'd rather take a train if possible and just take a taxi from the nearest station to what I want to see. I was going to mention that earlier as an afterthought but I ran out of time to edit the previous post. Thanks also for recommemding the fishing village. The friend I'm going with will love that.

P.s. Not sure it matters, as far as recommendations, but we're staying at the Diar el Andalous.

Most entertainment in Pek is hotel based.

Like you ,i have not been for some time(health) ,so yes lot of changes ,before and after pandemic

Night clubs/entertainment in Sousse?

Maybe a recent visitor can comment'on this.

Train?

Confusion on recent threads about train travel. to where and when !

Would you not have to go to Sousse for a train to Hammamet?

Bit ar@e from elbow that .

No train station in Pek

Bus ,Louage or car/driver ?

White tourist taxi for your Hammamet/Carthage /Dougga jaunt.

i can only suggest as we used that service often for day trips/

Plenty room in these mini-buses/vans .

If just the two of us ,we sometimes teamed up with another couple at hotel to share cost .

Negotiate with driver !

You are in charge of hire,so stop when you want if 🤢 nauseous .

PS

Location of hotel may have helped for places nearby for entertainment (if any)

Thanks. Yes I did suspect i'd have to take the train from Sousse but I've walked from Sousse to PEK and back, so I don't see it as a big deal, although I'm sure the friend I'm going with this time wouldn't be up for that so we'd probably take a taxi. I guess I could ask a driver to stop on a longer trip, so thats a thought, although I do like the idea of a long train journey there.

Yeah, I think its best to plan ahead as a lot could've changed in nearly 8 years. 😂 I can pretty much guarantee I couldn't pay the friend I'm going with enough to do that walk either.
