It was our last day at Zanzibar and today we planned to explore the Ancient stone town, the narrow and winding alleys, historical and antique structures and market of stone town, rather than taking a guide we thought of doing it ourselves and trust me it was much fun doing it on your own, we did get lost (everybody does) in the confusing alleys of stone town but don't worry, you'll come out from the cool, shady lanes into the blinding sunlight of the seafront eventually, you'll find something of interest around every corner of Stone Town. We found few good restaurants and had some really good food and yes did a little bit of local shopping too. Things to see in stone town are House of Wonder, Fort, the old hamam, Spice market, Salve Market etc not only this but Stone town is full of old structure and antique windows and doors where ever you see, No one single attraction can beat an afternoon strolling through the narrow streets and zigzag lanes of ancient Stone Town, it was a wonderful 3 hours historical walk, later we ended up in Hyatt hotel Sea Side Restaurant to have some chilled beer in the scorching heat, awesome place to have a relaxing time.
The colours are so intense, that it feels like I’ve gate crashed an Irma Stern painting. Coming to the archipelago of Zanzibar is like awakening to a beautifully different side of Africa. It’s a destination laced with a rich, spicy history, set within a vivid ocean and landscape, and promising a new stylish take on imperial heritage. Before I came here, all I knew of Zanzibar was from descriptions I had read in letters and journals written by ancient explorers, and blog posts from modern travellers.
Zanzibar. The name itself had always conjured up images of the exotic in my imagination, having once been a centre for spice, ivory and more infamously slave trade, so with a few weeks at my disposal I wasted no time in taking a short diving holiday there with a couple of friends. Type the name of this little East African island into any internet search engine and its appeal is obvious - countless images of picture-postcard palm-fringed beaches, vibrant turquoise waters and deeply coloured sunsets. A real paradise.
