    I travel to Zanzibar a lot an no trip to Stone Town is ever complete without a visit to the Night Market... sometimes three nights in a row. The nightly market is a favorite among both locals and tourists and it's easy to understand why. Even if you're not interested in eating the food the vendors have on offer, the colorful displays of seafood and snacks are a fantastic feast for the eyes. If you are willing to sample some of the fare (and I highly recommend it) make sure to try a Zanzibar pizza and wash it down with some freshly squeezed sugar cane juice.

Description:

By day, the Forodhani Gardens are pleasant but unremarkable. After the sun sets, the seaside park comes alive with the sights, smells, and sounds of the nightly market. Popular with both locals and tourists alike, you’ll find a lively social scene and stalls filled with a bounty of sea and street food. From seafood to samosas, Zanzibar pizzas, and fresh squeezed juices, there’s plenty to choose from.
