Banjul, filled with charming colonial buildings and one of the largest seaside markets in West Africa, exudes an irresistible charm. It has many historical monuments and is -- save for some pickpocketing at Albert Market -- overall safe for tourists to walk around.

My brother and I stayed in a eco lodge called Footsteps. The guy who owns it is really fun. The food was fantastic as it was very close to the sea. From the lodge we could walk to the beach and have lunch on the beach by a fishing village. Gambia transport is incredibly slow they call is "Gambia time" because it is all so slow. It is a very poor area, that makes their money from peanuts and peanut oil. Banjul has hurly burly markets, that sell stuff you are likely to find in camden market. It is an experience in its self because you are walking across a long sand road, that when the wind blows everything gets sandy. I would recommend taking taxis (and haggling for them) because the buses are sooo slow. The gambian people are very friendly and they will all ways greet you. Sometimes they do hassle you but they never mean it in a dangerous way.
