Containing over 3 million people and the second-largest port in East Africa, Dar es Salaam can sometimes overwhelm a traveller with its crowds and disorganisation. However, there is a laid back vibe beneath the vaneer of urban chaos, with a picturesque seaport, a mixture of African, Indian, and Arabic influences and close ties to its Swahili past. There are a handful of sights as well as craft markets, shops and restaurants to visit.
