Zanzibar, an archipelago in the Indian Ocean, is a paradise destination for sun-seekers and beach lovers. It is one of the best places to visit in Tanzania. With fine powder white sand and turquoise waters, Zanzibar’s beaches are to die for. But there’s more to Zanzibar than its beaches. There are plenty of other things to do in the archipelago as Zanzibar has something for everyone — culture, history and delicious food.
Exploring Stone Town is one of the best things to do in Zanzibar. It is the old part of Zanzibar City, the capital of the Zanzibar archipelago. As Stone Town of Zanzibar is considered to be a fine example of the Swahili coastal trading towns, it has been inscribed on UNESCO World Heritage List since 2000.
The vibrant Darajani Market is the main bazaar in Stone Town. It’s a traditional market where you can buy all sorts of goods — street food, meat, seafood, veggies, fruits, grains, spices, clothes, plastic goods and consumer electronics. We believe that markets are a crucial part of the city and they are totally worth exploring.
