  Streets - Shangani
by PierreZA

If you continue from the Fort, you can follow the road, passing under The Orphanage. This leads to Shangani. This is an area where many upmarket hotels are.
If you turn right, after passing under the Orphanage, you will find a small strip of beach, where locals launch their boats and dhows. This small area also have a few restaurants.
Further in Shangani are many shops and also a bank where I was able to use the ATM.
Shangani is the Western point of Stone Town.
