Antananarivo (Tana), with its brightly coloured houses stacked up the hillsides, mauve jacarandas and purple bougainvillea, is an attractive capital city.

The rice paddies and zebu-carts on the outskirts provide a stark contrast to the noisy traffic, bustling markets and colourful people in the narrow cobbled streets of the city centre.

Tana has relatively little in the way of conventional sightseeing. Apart from the Tsimbazaza museum and Botanical Garden, activities revolve around shopping. The artisans' market shows an enormous array of quality Malagasy handicrafts including woodcarvings, raffia work, embroidered tablecloths and Antaimoro paper.
Tana also boasts a lively mixture of excellent restaurants, bars and nightclubs.
