Dakar is a hectic but vibrant city situated on a Peninsula. There's a constant chaotic flow of traffic that includes not just cars but animals and peddlers selling stuff. Despite its annoyances, it's worth visiting: you'll eat cheap, tasty street food, hear great live music and be welcomed by friendly locals.

Dakar is as mad a city as they come. From the driving to the random sights of naked people that I have come across. For a westerner this place sure is a total culture shock. I am seeing people with nothing who just get on with their lives. Senalgalese people are very friendly but they do get on your nerves as they try to sell you everything under the sun as you walk around Dakar.

Dakar is a sprawling city located on a peninsula jutting into the Atlantic. It can be a bit chaotic, and it definitely helps to speak French. The weather is fantastic, the people in general are very friendly. The local food is very tasty, and the music lively. It is definitely a fun place to go, and a great introduction to French Speaking Africa.
