A real insight into Africa. A must do experience for all the family. Not much to buy but great to see. Make sure you take a guide with you.

A large market selling food, clothing, house hold goods and live stock. It is a worth a visit to soak up the sights, sounds and smells. If you have a taxi here, your driver will probably show you around.

Just your typical African Market. Largest in Banjul but small when compared to some of the markets in my home country. Would be of great interest to Europeans. I was able to buy some local print shirts and dresses as souvenirs.
