I want to go to tunisia in October what will the weather be like out there at that time
The weather is lovely in October with temperatures around 25C in the day and around 15C at night.
Is it expensive out there
Tunisia is still very reasonable and you can find cheap food and drink if you stay out of the main tourist areas.
Which is cheap place for accomodation in Tunisia. And which is the best mean of transportation there? after my all quires i will make a plan to go there.
Jerry, where in Tunisia are you planning to travel? The best way to travel around is with louages, these are 9 seat mini buses and are cheapest way.

As you are resident in Italy you should contact the Tunisian Embassy in Rome. Pakistani nationals require a visa issued by an Embassy before arriving in Tunisia.
Transit visas are granted to those with onward flights. As you will be entering Tunisia and driving to the Libyan border you probably need a tourist visa.
In early August 2014 Tunisia closed the border with Libya
So you may encounter difficulties
So plzzzzz if u can help me. If there is any other solution to go to the libya . Because my parents r in libya . I have libyan visa .but there r no direct flights to libya
Perhaps you should try to get your parents out rather than you going there.
Alethia is right, if there is any way to get your parents out that would be preferable to travelling into Libya yourself - as I'm sure you know the situation is becoming increasingly dire and it is difficult to get into the country.
Hi we have booked to go to tunisia in yasmine hammamet on 6th July 2015 for 10 days. I have just discovered it's Ramadan and wondered if we will be served drinks in our hotel as we are all inclusive? Also if we go out during the day will the restaurants and bars be open? Thank you. Mandy
Generally speaking, hotels and resorts that are frequented by foreigners continue to serve alcohol during Ramadan so that shouldn't be a problem. Within the resort 'bubble' you will probably not be able to tell the difference. Restaurants and bars in the city are another matter - it is polite not to be seen eating, drinking or smoking in public places during Ramadan and doing so could garner you some unwelcome attention. I would advise you to contact your hotel just to make sure, and when there ask their advice about where you can go to eat and drink during Ramadan. Locals know best.
Shahid, ribht now our borders are fairly well locked down, however Libyans are still coming in if they have the correct papers. If you can get a visa into Tunis then perhaps your parents can meet you here. Many Libyans are coming in through Sfax, Djerba and Kerkennah.
Shahid.....I have updated info. You can get to Libya with Afriqiya Air travelling from Istanbul, Amman or Tripoli (Lebanon). Please give me an email and I will put you in touch with my Libyan sources, for obvious reasons I will not do this on an open forum.
Hi Ella, thank you for your reply. I will check with our hotel. Are there boat trips available to book when we arrive?
Mandy, there are many boats that take tourists for trips. Just head for the harbour and take your pick. Wish you a very happy vacation with us.
hi i am wondering if anyone can help i booked a trip to the amir palace in june 15 i was really excited untill various travel sites gave it awful reviews i am now a little anxious and wondering if i should cancel and loose the money i ahve already paid, if anyone has knowledge of the amir palace on all inclusive basis i would be greatful wether it be good or bad, i am also wondering if anyone knows the current costs of taxis to and from sousse monister hammemet etc sorry for spelling mistakes no insult meant by them, and if anyone has knowledge as to what trips and costs of trips i can do from the hotel and finally does anyone know if ramadan will affect the all inclusive option of my holiday as the travel agent failed ton advise me my holiday was during ramadan and i do not wish to affend anyone many thanks in advance
ljnmark - I can't tell you if it a good hotel never having stayed there - oh and I presume you mean the Amir in Skanes/Monastir?? I had a look on Trip Advisor and they have a majority excellent. Depends what you want from a hotel as to what you get here really. From Monastir to Sousse should be no more than tnd10.000 and slightly less to Hammamet. You can take overnight desert trips, day trips to Tataouine and Matmata, historic sites etc etc. Depends on what you want to do. Give me some more information and I can give you better advice.
Ramadan will not affect your all inclusive and probably you won't notice it much outside the hotel unless you go touring. then you may find not many places to get food or drink. Alcohol outside the hotel will probably not be available.
