How it works:
- Counterfeits of popular items here include antiques, gemstones, carpets and cigarettes and are also sold at inflated prices.
Places to beware:
- Djerba: Markt/Basar in Houmt Souk
- Hammamet: Yasmin Hammamet, Costa Mall
- Mahdia: Mahdia’s Old Town
- Tunis: Medina of Tunis
What to do:
- Learn how to separate the wheat from the chaff, or only visit licensed, reputable shops. If a price is too good to be true, it is.
