Places in Djibouti
Djibouti City is evolving at a fast pace, and there’s a palpable sense of change in the air. Today’s city is vastly different from the battered French outpost to which it was reduced in the 1980s and 1990s. Thanks to its geostrategic importance and its busy port, Djibouti City has been transformed from a sleepy capital to a thriving place.
Nestled in the shadow of the green Goda Mountains with the bright blue sea lapping at its doorstep, Tadjoura is a picturesque little place. With its palm trees, whitewashed houses and numerous mosques, it has an Arabian feel to it. There’s little to do here besides stroll around and soak up the atmosphere, but it’s a great place to spend a few hours.
