Lamu is magnetic and very interesting. Being an island it has been more protected against time. The mix of different cultures: Portugueses, persians, Hindi and English with the natural culture Bantú had created an unique architectural and cultural villages. Get lost in its little alleys watching the local made buildings with coral, lime and carved wood or having a tea at the roofs-turned-cafes or walk in the marketplace (the meat market is quite an experience), visiting mosques and museums, buying craftworks, going fishing by dhow or just lay down over the dunes of a paradise beach at sunset watching the time going by, are some of the options that this unique island offers, where no cars or motorbikes are allowed, where no modern technology has arrived and where the time, at last, stop.
