Sundry information (move to cultural section)

Although tolerant and accustomed to international visitors, Tunisia remains a Muslim country that is attached to appearances and modesty. Although topless sunbathing is allowed on hotel beaches, you should dress decently to go into the city and visit tourist attractions. During Ramadan, you will be able to eat in covered places but, out of respect, you should avoid smoking or drinking in front of everyone
