"Rich Blend of Old-world Heritage among Coral Seas" Zanzibar Town by gordonye
Zanzibar Town Travel Guide: 245 reviews and 643 photos
This modest sized tropical island had been settled by traders from around the Indian Ocean for over 1000 years. A rich blend of Arab-Persian, Indian, and mainland African lifestyles still thrive in this very unique cultural melting pot. Once ruling a large swath of east African coast from Somalia to Mozambique, Zanzibar is now the center of the world's Islamic Swahili culture and the place whose local dialect is considered the purest form of Swahili. Its old-world labyrinthine streets, friendly and elegant people, incredible beaches and beautiful coral seas make Zanzibar a wonderful vacation destination.
