  The market is the entrance to the Europea Quarter
by hunwagner

Just south of the decaying European Quarter, the Central Market is probably the heart of Djibouti City.
Its food section bears the dubious distinction of being one of the dirtiest markets I have ever seen - the thick clouds of flies made us afraid to talk lest we swallow some if we open our mouth.
A bit to the east there is a tourist-oriented souvenir market, mostly selling junk from Kenya.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
