Sao Tome And Principe - Travel and Tourism
The South Pacific may be a top destination for those seeking island paradises, but Africa holds its own, thanks largely to São Tomé and Príncipe.
São Tomé Town: The capital city of São Tomé is not only the first stop for newcomers to the country but a destination in itself.
Because of their location near the Equator, São Tomé and Príncipe have a pleasant, tropical climate with little variation during the year.
São Tomé requires a visa, a valid passport, and proof of a yellow fever vaccination for entering the country.
There is no better way to experience the diversity and richness of Africa’s people, cultures, and landscapes than through video.
Despite the concerns associated with visiting any developing nation, São Tomé and Príncipe is a safe country to visit. Beggars are generally annoying but harmless.
The currency used on the islands is the dobra, issued in colorful notes that resemble the euro.
A general National Museum was founded in 1976 and located in the Fortress of Saint Sebastian, constructed in 1585. Its exhibits are mainly of African and religious art.
