Faritanin' i Toamasina Travel Guide: 113 reviews and 317 photos

Toamasina (or Tamatave in french) is Madagascar 2nd city and with the presence of the main regional seaport has a growing potential for economical activities. Located on the eastern coast, the capital of the Atsinana has its own culture named after one of the country’s 18 tribes, the Betsimisaraka. Toamasina, in Malagasy, is tighly connected to its environment. Atsinana Rainforest voted on the list of UNESCO World Heritage starts from Masoala and ends in Ranomafana region (where FOKO is currently working). This corridor is under the watch because of multiple problems of deforestation (by the use of slash-and-burn) . Due to geography, each town and village located on the eastern coast are the first victims of seasonal cyclonic disasters as it was sadly proven earlier this week.
Our interest in bringing the Foko Blog Club to Toamasina resides in bringing more attention to a very dynamic region where the youth and the communities are highly skilled and have many stories to share with the world. Our Toamasina group will be of course driving attention to environmental echues that are not commonly talked about on the web or even on the ground. With their charming accent is different, their wonderful seafront and kindness, this group will very quickly surprise us!

    Hasina, when someone tells me MY accent is "charming" it often means they cannot understand me, had that in England ^O^ Looking forward to seeing much more, first on your pages and then later on a visit. Martin
