Vacations and Sightseeing

Mogadishu is the capital of Somalia. At the Bakara market, you can buy anything from food to clothing and jewellery. The jewellery is cheap and gives an African ethnic colour to those who wear it. The street food is irresistible and made with simple and basic spices from Somalia. Beware of the hygiene and climate.

The Old City of Shanghai is a major tourist attraction of Somalia. The old city is known for its natural beauty. The architecture of the place is also remarkable. This Somalia city is currently governed by the rich middle class and the warlords of the city.

Sinbusi beach is one of the most sought after beaches in the country. Only 5 kilometres away from the city of Merca, this beautiful beach offers a romantic view. You can rent a beach hut with all modern bathroom and kitchen facilities.

Before visiting Somalia, please consult the travel advice of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
