    Hello irish_1983,

    I dont think you need worry too much about the guy from Jendouba, he is not likey to travel down to sousse to see you, it is quite a long distance away.

    Stay in a good hotel and you will be safe enough. However as a lady on your own you will get lots of attention from men there and it can be very frightening when you are on your own as they can be very persistent.

    I would not go to bars /clubs on my own. You have two options i can see......either go somewhere just as warm but safer and more relaxing (unless you are not bothered about a lot of male attention) or make friends with other people at your hotel and hang out with them.

    Hammamet is known for a lot of love rats as rosie has said, so i do not think you would be any better off there either.

    I've been to both places. Port El Kantoui near Sousse is lovely.
    I don't rate the night life in Hammamet that much.

    I think it is ok to go alone as long as you are a strong character and have your wits about you. Of course like anywhere dont walk about at night by your self gets taxis. I would be happy to go out alone and I have a few times when I have been meeting friends and waiting for them yes you can get hassle but I find a firm no usually does the trick but I am sure a lot of people have different views on this!!

    Hi Irish,

    Welcome to the forum. I have travelled to Sousse on my own several times, you will be okay, just be prepared for hassle. A firm no helps, but sometimes the men just ignore it. I never went to clubs on my own. I was always with friends. However, I have friends who have gone to clubs on their own, and it was okay.I walked down the corniche every day in Sousse, and ate in restaurants either on my own, or with friends. The man who is threatening you online can't do anything to you, make sure you stay in a hotel. As Cuddle has said get prepared for lots of attention. It is full on! You will probably meet lots of other people travelling on their own. I did, and you may want to hang out with them or not. Sousse also has its share of love rats.

    personally I think Sousse is worse than Hammamett its a bigger city more sleazy hotels and rats hanging around them..I was once asked by a rat if he wanted me to be his guide as he saw me alone in sousse and I went to hire a car he kind of stalked me the whole time in the end i went to the police and reported him he took my phone and nicked ma sim card but he did it so quickly i didnt realise ..anyway I got it back plus a new sim card that he had bought after the police paid him a visit ..Port el kantaoui is nicer more relaxing but I found sousse sleazy especially the night clubs full of drunken people out of control and of course the stalking rats waiting to pounce ..you will have to have your wits about you as it is busy and many visitors especially other tunisians go there for their holidays ...if you book in a decent hotel then all well and good but beware the cheaper hotels on the sea front not advisable ..there are crazy people in sousse personally I prefer Hammamet because its more relaxed and because I know every inch of it I been there so many times now even the old man who sells the miniature bongo drums says hi to me also Ali and his brother who own the bags and souvenir shops in the high street and market place ..but its like any big city or town you visit keep your eyes open and wits about you ..problems arise when many people get blotto and do not realise what they are doing ..then the opportunists will strike ..if you go alone wear dark shades and maybe cover your hair if its blonde so you do not attract attention lol but as you say you do not drink Im sure you will be ok it is a shock when you first go alone all the attention ..as some Tunes think single female travellers go for SEX or looking for sex its one of their misconceptions about single female travellers ..but having said that I have witnessed young drunken english girls /women making a complete ass of themselves and felt very embarrassed to be english...just because in england mostly a woman can frequent a BAR alone and noone bats an eyelid not so in Tunisia or greece or other countries just remember cos you can do stuff here its not always acceptable in Tunisia as it is a muslim country and they frown upon certain women who are shall we say of a libertine nature ..extroverted ..adventurous and formidable ...if you are worried register with british embassy when you get there on their locate website and get a few contact numbers of police stations etc ..DO buy a tunisian sim and put it in your phone much cheaper than using an english sim and phone you can buy one for 10 tds =five pounds and top up for 5 tds it lasts for ages..good luck!!
