Fomboni is quiet and sleepy in the extreme. There’s no old Arab town like those in Moroni and Mutsamudu, and most of the buildings are low-rise and low-tech. Once you’ve walked up and down the nameless main street a couple of times, cast an eye over the market and visited the jetty, you’ve pretty much experienced all that the town has to offer. Mohélians are a bit quieter and less outgoing than their counterparts on Grande Comore and Anjouan, but they are still unfailingly friendly and courteous. So, as long as you aren’t looking for action-packed entertainment, Fomboni is a good place to just wander about, taking in everyday Comorian life.
