It has a vibrant food market
If you want to get some great culture and great food as well look no further. Arusha has a central market that is one of the best places to get a glimpse, or become immersed in Tanzanian life, catering to all senses.
Locals will desperately try to be your tour guide, for a fee of course, and others will try to barter and trade items with you. Everything from clothes, jewelry, shoes, you name it. The atmosphere is very lively indeed.
