Comoros Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 42%, Comoros is an interesting blend of Arab, African and French influences that have come together to form a unique cultural identity that penetrates everything from the curious blend of languages used, to the spicy cuisine that seems stuck halfway between a French kitchen and Middle Eastern bazaar. However, as PlanetHoppers! know perhaps better than anyone else, diversity tends to equal interesting, and there's no shortage of interesting destinations to explore in Comoros. Topping the list has to be miles of beautiful white sand beaches and the stunning Mohéli Marine Park, which as a cooperative between government and locals, has placed the country at the forefront of Africa's first steps toward sustainability. Then there is the capital of Moroni, which hosts an Arab Quarter that will make you question if you've been miraculously transported to the Middle East. The term "melting pot" is thrown around a bit and often refers to the mingling of different cultural groups, but in the case of Comoros, it is more a blending of cultural influences that has produced one of the most interesting group of islands you could hope to find anywhere in the world.
