    ... Lots of accommodation options, superb beaches, lots of activities available, it's a large island too, and its city center stonetown is rich and unique. It makes for a great destination from Europe to escape the cold if needed! Locals are also more relaxed than on the mainland, Africa on a beach, you can't stress out!

    In the evening we revisited Foradhani Gardens, which come to life with dozens of vendors serving grilled skewers, kebabs, Zanzibari pizza and other delights. We tried a wide variety of foods, including marinated chicken and fish (yum), ...

    Andy: Our last day in paradise. I think I've got it now, paradise is being bought a paper in bed saying Arsenal didn't win. Our breakfast buffet in paradise consists of 8 different ways to toast your bread. I have a preference for the reverse Scotsman. They also have tea from more countries than there are countries.
