General opinion: 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.

General opinion:  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.
