A ten minute walk from Blantyre’s small bus station, and directly next to the big one, Dougles is frequented by locals, tourists and long term volunteers. Its self-contained bar, restruarunt, pool and lounge makes it a good stop-over when exploring Malawi. There is nothing much to do in the City itself but makes for an interesting stroll during the day when you can visit the markets and the main street. Prices for food and drink are fairly international but still good value. On a Thursday night it is advisable to book ahead as the place pack out with the addition of a live band playing pop hits and reggae til 4am.
