Rice trade fair in Ambatondrazaka20/08/2010 | 16:55:42
Madagascar’s central eastern city of Ambatondrazaka, will hold a rice trade fair from August 24th to the 30th, as a first occasion to promote the sector and gather its major operators in order to address the various problems hindering its development.
In such a holiday period, the rice trade fair will equally serve as hobby to the local population and to the region’s natives willing to join the city.
Ambatondrazaka has been being part of the Great Isle’s main barns for decades. Though having been restored long ago, the regional road linking it to the National Road 2 is a major concern for transportation
Located 140 miles away from the capital city is the compulsory stopover of Antsampanana to whoever hits the road towards the eastern part of the Great Isle. Travelers get a warm welcome from Antsampanana's traditional restaurants famed across the island for the ales on their set meals. The small town of Antsampanana still has another card up its sleeve, namely a rich stock of exotic fruits.[See]
It takes no longer than a single hour on the road towards the East of the capital city to reach Mandraka, one of the few central lands' places which preserved its original beauty with success. Not many tricky tracks up to there, only drive on the 2nd National Road towards the eastern Toamasina city to avoid any off target landing[See]
Madagascar’s 3000 miles long coasts and hundreds of islands surrounding it are a real deposit of tropical treasures of untold beauty. The small island of Tsarabanjina is merely one sample of what is being told here. But what a sample.[See]
