TOURISM NEWS FLASH

Antsampanana, a turning plate for exotic products 04/11/2013 | 07:05:45

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.


The shops standing along the National Road already provide with a good looking taste of the pending discoveries. The town is literally teeming with regional and endemic species of fruits like the Soanambo, the Pocanelle, the Ranjaly or the Ampalibe. The names are obviously likely to mean nothing to those who never tasted their owners, considering that these species are found nowhere but on the lost continent which once linked India to Africa. Antsampanana happens to be one of these markets where they can be purchased at relatively low costs. Local farmers would eventually offer the opportunity to taste the natural taste of cocoa. This commodity massively and industrially gets turned into chocolate, taste of which is much widely known all around the world compared to that of its basic ingredient. Antsampanana, the taste discovery crossroads, 140 miles in the East of Antananarivo city, at the bend towards Vatomandry; see you when you there!
