In Dar all places are very accessible regardless to its distance from CBD, the travel fees are very cheap and similar in all directions. Due to that nO person is restricted to reach any were as a means of transport is available and cost is affordable to all even low income earners. May God bless Dar es salaam city.

Most of fake and counter fake products are ever sold particularly in Kariakoo. For original products and accessories just find them in Posta. For the case of cell phones please be care when looking for it at Kariakoo there are street guys roaming around the market looking for new comers who prefer cheapest product and end up buying soap bars in cell phones boxes.

Usually hot so cotton, lightweight Clothes better. Cosmopolitan city but 'western' dress like minis or shorts not approved of. Wide range of entertainment, accommodation, eating out, etc. exists. Transport is varied from motor bikes/boda boda - as a passenger, or in a 3 wheeler Bajaj like they have in Indian cities and towns, or in a regular taxi. Welcome! Karibuni

Despite everything Dar es Salaam is a lovely place to live in, as people here are very good. If you come across any problem on the road, there are people ready to help you. My car had many problems like Trye burst, fell into a ditch, or stuck in quick sand; but every time people are ready to help ..... yeah we should pay them some thing - courtsey sake

Enjoy the great colourful city with the friendly people, the funny transport on Daladala or Bajaji and the lively markets. Best low budged place to stay is Eazys Place, a hostel and B&B with a kind and very friendly host. There you can experience the real african way of life.

Dar is a very exciting typical East African city, full of life and busy people everywhere. You can buy almost evertything anywhere for little money. People are really friendly. Public Transport is a nightmare but worth taking part. You should know where to go or you are lost. Anyway, it's really worth coming here and stay a few days.

Dar es Salaam, formerly Mzizima, is the largest city (pop. 2,500,000 est 2003), economic centre and former capital of Tanzania.
It is located on a bay of the Indian Ocean.
Dar es Salaam started life as a fishing village in 1865, when the Sultan of Zanzibar established a summer residence there. It was still a small town when German forces occupied it in 1887.
In 1891, it became the capital of German East Africa and 1961 capital of the independent Tanzania. In the early 1980s some government offices were moved to Dodoma, which had been designated to ... More become the new capital.
Today Dar es Salaam is a pleasant city with a picturesque harbour, exotic beaches, a vibrant nightlife and interesting historical buildings.
There is also an international airport and two major train and bus stations.
