Djibouti, the country's eponymous capital and largest city, houses over two thirds of the nation's population. Strategically positioned near major shipping routes, it serves as a regional trading center. A trip to Djibouti allows you to see the various architectural styles of the city's different periods, including mosques, government buildings, and residential areas. Mingle with the locals in bazaars along narrow streets, sample the distinct cuisine of the Horn of Africa in restaurants, and take in the multicultural ambiance at one of the city's festivals. To personalize your trip to Djibouti, create itinerary details specific to you using our Djibouti tour itinerary builder tool.

Where to stay in Djibouti

Beaches along the eastern shore of Djibouti provide some respite from the blistering heat, which many lodgings there use to attract tourists. Elsewhere in the city choose from range of accommodations, from budget-friendly to mid-range and more extravagant, with a small cluster between the great mosque and the University of Djibouti. If clean rooms, simple style, and efficient services are enough to satisfy, most of the places will suit just fine.
