We all know that Serrekunda is Gambia largest town and is a maze of dusty streets and badly constructed compounds the market here is busy,noisy and vibrant with colour. I've been through it many times to catch the bus to Lamin but just hated it the streets are crowded, people seem to be shoving and pushing it just wasn't a place I have ever wanted to wander around. Then a friend showed me around last year it was one culture experience which lasted 3-4 hours! I tell you food shopping with a Gambian is somewhat mind blowing so 1/2 day was more than enough for me.
Anyone got any tips for our readers where to eat or drink in a place like this?
Anyone else ever find this place a bit daunting especially getting around it all?
We went on Mosque day which I think was a Friday thankfully it seemed a little quieter than normal otherwise it would have induced a panick attack for me. Its certainly not my scene and as said you got to experience it to make a judgement but it is well worth at least one visit.
What do you love or hate about Serrekunda?
