Voice of Travelers to Dar es Salaam

My Ticket to the National Museum

I am a lover of art and culture. I have already booked several ticket flights to different countries in the past just to visit their national museums and study their culture. This year, I decided to book a ticket flight to Tanzania to visit the Dar es Salaam National Museum. On my way to the museum, I first dropped by at the botanical gardens since the garden is just next to the museum. I was amazed by the views and displays at Dar es Salaam National Museum. The large collections of relics from the British and German rule was very fascinating. There are also various Chinese pottery on display. The Tanzanian culture was very rich, and I have learned a lot in viewing their ethnographic collections. My ticket to the museum was worth it. My ticket flight to Dar es Salaam in general is satisfying and rewarding.

My Trip to Dar es Salaam Marine Reserve

I am an environmentalist, and I specifically study marine wildlife and biology. The Dar es Salaam Marine Reserve System is one of the richest marine ecosystem, which is why I went there during the summer. I booked a ticket flight to Dar es Salaam, and proceed to the marine reserve. The reserve is teemning with life. I have observed how a lot of tourists book ticket flights to Dar es Salaam just to visit this place. It is good in tourism, but it is a threat to the marine reserve. My ticket flight only allowed me to stay for a couple of days, but I have not completed my research yet. I will most definitely book another ticket flight in the next months to finish my study. All in all, however, my ticket to this place is not a total waste because of the substantial data that I was able to gather.
