A trip to Zanzibar in November can be something spectacular without ever leaving the main center, Stone Town. Many of the island's attractions can be found or accessed from within Stone Town and visitors will find that they may have too much to do, rather than not enough.
Of course, visiting one of the many beaches is mandatory, but after that gets old, one could try going on one of the numerous tours available in and around the main island of Zanzibar.
There are a number of spice tours (which can usually be arranged right from the hotel in which a visitor is staying) that take visitors on a relaxing yet exciting tour of some of the plantations where exotic spices are farmed.
Visitors will see and smell (and possibly taste) cloves, cinnamon, pepper and nutmeg to name a few and they will learn about how these spices that are so ordinary and taken for granted today, have been cultivated and sold to create vast fortunes for the many Sultans of Oman and beyond.
