TOURISM NEWS FLASH

Exotic fruits massively available in Faraony 05/12/2013 | 07:59:13

The road to the South East happens to be praised like not many other ones by travelers. Over the latest years to this day, restoration work has been making the access to this particular region of the island much easy. When hitting the National Road 12, an exploration of a place named Faraony is definitely worth the stop.


No matter how many more than 40 miles to go is left up to the southwestern seaside city of Manakara, the small town of Faraony irretrievably manages to capture the traveler's attention by massively offering what the seaside does not. Settled in small makeshift cabins made of bast fibers or other locally available material, local farmers are used to sell unusually large quantities of exotic fruits of many kinds out at just as unusually low prices.  "Bull's Hearts", Ampalibe fruits collected from local expanses, "Ranjaly" type bananas, and cacao beans, the standard chocolate's basic ingredient, are available for mass consumption seven days a week. Some of those species require a while to get ripe. Faraony offers no less than the opportunity to restore stocks of peculiar fruits largely unknown in others parts of the world. As said earlier, throwing a glance at the town on the way to Manakara or from Manakara to Fianarantsoa is worth the stop.
