Antsirabe

 
Antsirabe Antsirabe is a memorable town to visit if only to experience the constant badgering of the pousse-pousse drivers. A pousse-pousse is the Malagasy equivalent to the rickshaw and Antsirabe is infested with them. From the moment you arrive by taxi-bousse you will be swarmed by pousse-pousse drivers desperate for your business. They will take you anywhere in the town and because competition for your patronage is extreme, it is possible to negotiate a reasonable price before climbing on board, but remember, if you want to get to your hotel or destination quickly try to pick a young driver! The last time I rode a pousse-pousse in Antsirabe, my old driver could barely generate enough speed to reach walking pace. Ants...
 

Antananarivo

 
Antananarivo Antananarivo, thankfully shortened to Tana by tourists and locals alike, is the bustling capital of Madagascar. Built on hillsides and ridges and ringed with rice paddies, Tana is an interesting place to spend a few days either at the beginning or end of your holiday. As it is also the location of the country's major international airport, most visitors will find themselves at least passing through the city.

A palace (Rova) was built on the highest hill and in such a prominent position that it could be se...
 

Fianarantsoa

 
Fianarantsoa Fianarantsoa is the largest town in the highlands south of Tana and is the capital city of the province of the same name. As with all of Madagascars highland towns, the place is very hilly, so be prepared for some steep walks. Your most likely introduction to Fianarantsoa will be the dusty, bustling taxi-brousse station along the busy Rue MDRM. Here it is easy to find a ride to your next destination or the way to a nearby hotel. Hotel Arinofy is located close to the taxi-brousse station and is relatively easy to find, although the short walk does take you up a very steep hill! The hotel is extremely clean and has a nice restaurant on the bottom floor. The double story building has magnificent views overlooking t...
