Antananarivo, the capital of Madagascar: a city rich with a blend of Malagasy and French-European influence.
Le Louvre Hôtel & Spa
I booked accommodations at Le Louvre Hôtel & Spa during both of my visits to Antananarivo. The spa instantly sold me on the hotel. At the end of each day, I booked massages to wind down and relax–some of the best self love I’d treated myself to in a long time.

Patisserie Colbert Tananarive – Fine Malagasy Chocolate
Stumbled upon this French Bakery just two blocks from my hotel and added a couple kilos of fine Malagasy chocolate to my luggage.

Exiting my hotel, crossing the street, and walking through the park, I reached a set of stairs that led down to the local open-air market that was filled with hundreds of vendors ready to bargain.
