A World Heritage Site boasts a labyrinth of winding alleys, bustling marketplaces, beautifully carved wooden doors, breathtaking mosques, and grand Arab residences. With streets too small and tightly packed for cars to cruise along, Stone Town is perfect for pedestrians. And getting lost. Stone Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is Zanzibar’s biggest city which got its name from the fact that many of the gorgeous 19th-century buildings are built from coral stone. It may look ramshackle at first, but this intriguing town is a living time capsule. The architecture here has been shaped by generations of explorers and spice traders and provides many interesting photography opportunities.
