2. Zanzibar

Zanzibar is a group of islands. The largest of which is called Unguja and is the most popular with tourists. Lying off the coast of Tanzania, Zanzibar mostly runs itself without input from the mainland. The African island was once an important trading center, and people from different countries have settled here for centuries. Today, Zanzibar’s residents mostly live in the main settlement of Stone Town, which is also a big draw for visitors. Tourists are charmed by stone white-washed houses with coral built into their walls, the bazaars, small mosques, and shaded courtyards. Another big attraction is the long white beaches and the turquoise sea.
