The old spice island of Zanzibar is located off Africa's east coast and belongs to Tanzania. The main city is called Stone Town, and is also the place where singer Freddie Mercury from "Queen" was born. You can see the house, where Mercury was born, while the restaurant "Mercury's" on the waterfront just profit from his name and has nothing to do with the singer. When you walk around the many small narrow streets, it's like stepping 100 years back in time, and the city is quickly seen in one day. It is recommended to visit the night market that takes place by the water. Here approx. 100 cooks with chef hats line up with exciting local food, for example lots of seafood, kebabs and sugarcane juice. This is also the gathering point for local people and their families. Opposite the market, you can enjoy the sunset with a cool cocktail from the nice lounge terrace at the hotel Africa House.
