I am very sad to write that we have experienced two pickpocket attempts today in the Madagascar capital of Antananarivo. The first occasion involved two boys at the market. The second a gang of five boys which I found very frightening. On both occasions the...More

You can find anything from food to clothes and souvenirs, but it's one of the markets with most hassle in the world. Beware of groups of 'mothers' who ask you to buy them milk and then sell it back to the shop.

A vibrant real local market on one long street selling pretty much everything you would expect to find in an outdoor street market. Dont bring any valuables or wallets as there could be pickpockets. Just bring some cash. It seems to be quite safe.
