Gambia boasts beautiful beaches and is also named 'the smiling coast'. The tropical sunshine and uncrowded coastline make it a wonderful destination for a holiday. Things to do include cruising the River Gambia and discovering nature reserves, and relaxing on one of Gambia's palm-fringed beaches. Gambia is the perfect location for a quiet, relaxing holiday but there are also many markets to look around. You can also experience guided walks through the Abuko Nature Reserve, visit the monkey park, walk amongst crocodiles at the Katchikally crocodile pool and visit craft markets. Gambia is also good for shopping - local tailors produce clothing at very cheap prices. Flights to Gambia take roughly 6 hours.
