Places To See: Zanzibar

on

Zanzibar is made up of two islands that lie off the coast of Tanzania: Unguja and Pemba. These islands, sometimes also  called the spice islands–are some of the world’s major exporters of cloves. Zanzibar is rich with the history of the peoples that have passed through it: East African, Arab, Portuguese, Indian, and Omani, among others.

The islands’ capital is Zanzibar City, although Zanzibar is considered part of Tanzania. The old quarter of the city, Stone Town, has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

I cannot forget to mention the beautiful beaches of Zanzibar, which are not overflowing with people. I love oceans and quiet beaches where I can catch a snooze and listen to the waves lapping the shore.

You can find some amazing pictures of Zanzibar at zanzibar.net and here.
