It is a fascinating look at the essence of Zanzibar.

The town is most often cacophonous; street-crossing is a gamble (to work out what is street and what is not is all part of the fun); the buildings are historic, architecturally beautiful and falling apart; electric and laundry cables are strung and hang chaotically between and around the structures and narrow streets; but above all else the town and its people are astoundingly welcoming and friendly. Stone Town has some excellent gift shops with plenty of souvenirs and handicrafts to choose from.
