Attractions in Djibouti

edited August 2012 in Africa
I'm stopping in Djibouti briefly in transit and will have a few hours to kill in the city. I know almost nothing about the country - is there anything worth seeing and doing in Djibouti for tourists?

    Hi Laurence - Djibouti isn't a popular tourist destination (it is relatively unknown) but there are definitely things to see and do in Djibouti city. It's often a good bet to visit the local market if you only have a few hours in a city and Central Market in Djibouti is apparently an interesting experience. I don't know how much time you have but there are impressive natural attractions just outside of the city, like Lake Assal (the lowest point in Africa!), and some beautiful beaches. For a few more travel titbits have a look at this Djibouti Overview.
