“A beautiful City”
Reviewed September 2, 2015

A must visit. You have to walk around the town with a guide to admire the beautiful history. It so sad how people became slaves and how slaves were treated. A wonder story of Livingstone and how he changed the country. Visit the first church with the whipping post. Take a walk through the stinky fish market. Then watch the sun set. Beautiful city.

“A good experience”
Reviewed September 2, 2015 via mobile

A totally different world from what I know so it was a good experience to have walked around town in the small alleys. People were friendly, especially kids. Lots of vendors of all sorts of things everywhere and one should always bargain.
The traditional market, the night market, and the beach....all worth visiting.

“Night Market is a must see and eat”
Reviewed September 2, 2015

Get a chance to learn about this historic place, see the sights, shop, and make sure to eat at the Forodhani Park Night Market.

“Not a good place for me”
Reviewed September 2, 2015

It's a sad, depressing area to visit. I did not enjoy walking around Stone Twon with all the ruins and old dirty buildings.
