Zanzibar is a part of Tanzania and is located off the East African coast. The archipelago comprises small islands and two large ones. It was once the separate state of Zanzibar, which united with Tanganyika to form Tanzania later.
The Persians, Indians, Portuguese, Arabs, British and the Africans have influenced life of the islands. Stone Town is a city of winding lanes, towers, raised terraces and beautiful mosques. Other areas to visit are the Livingstone house, the Guliani Bridge, and the House of Wonders which is a palace. The town of Kidichi has one of Zanzibar’s architectural attractions - the Hammam Persian Baths which were built by Iranian settlers.
Zanzibar is a good place for scuba diving, snorkeling, windsurfing, waterskiing, deep sea fishing, kayaking, and sailing.
