    Tulear

    JP.

    I've only ever spent a couple of days at a time in Tulear en route to Anakao, Mangily & Morombe and I'm still not sure if I like it. There's a fair bit of hassle from posse posse guys and kids begging but for such an obviously poor place there are some surprisingly good restaurants.

    In 2013 I stayed at Plazza Sur and pulled FLs and waitresses from Bo Beach next door but P.S. Is now a boarding house for the Chinese only (although I didn't see any in town) and BB is now La Blu and has pushed out the FLs and the daytime drinkers. La Boeuf is the vazaha watering hole and there are various local semi-outdoor bars along that street. Za Za was still supposedly closed for refurbishment in April but Tam Tam wasn't so busy. I remember watching some old French guys flirting with girls at Boeuf and slapping their arses plus another guy walking into the night with his arm around 3 girls' shoulders and thinking they all seemed pretty happy there. Maybe I should spend a week there.

I never bother with pepper spray, better not resist, let them take some cash you have stashed away, but this sounds like an inside job for me, in Kenya its very common to be robbed by the hotel staff, that's why I never bother using a hotel safe useless....
    Hi Neddy,

    I personally met people get robbed and beaten in nighttime while taking pouzze pouzze. This in 3 cases, both with tourists and residents.

Learned a very valuable lesson; don't be cheap in the land that is already cheap. And also, Antsohihy, never again! I think I'm the only vazaha here and it's a poor town so that probably explains a lot. Also I think the hotel was in on it, I was screaming MPangalatra! (Thief!) for what seemed like 3 minutes, of course no body came till after I was pouring blood everywhere. Also since my time with the police today I've learned that Ambanja isn't all roses and flowers either. More dangerous with guns according to them. Pay attention, make sure you know the security where you're staying, and keep a stash of your valuables hidden somewhere! If I could do it all over again I'd just throw my cash all over the room and hide under the bed. Sad, sad times.

In Gambia a girl stole 300 euros from my room, but my fault I did not hide the money well enough. I also try to travel with as little cash as possible, I rather pull out cash with my visa whenever possible, even if that means bad rate of exchange, ATMs are really everywhere. To be robbed in the room is really unfortunate always take rooms inspect security, Iron bars in front of the windows or at least 1st floor. Usually all hotels lock everything up at night. In Fianarantsoa I can highly recommend the Dragon the Or. Its run by a chinese Kung Fu man. They lock everything up Iron Bars etc. In Tana I used the Relais de Normandie.

    Hope you are well.

    Neddy.

    Who has been robbed a few times mostly by chicas. 2 Laptops 3 Smartphones and about 600 euros in cash, so don't feel bad, its part of the african travel costs to budget for hehe.
    Mada I was only stolen a cheap nokia phone and Air Mada still owes me 200 euros, so my cheapest african holiday....

    The French woman who bought and took over LE Boeuf was robbed and beaten while closing up the bar earlier this year. Saw her with two black eyes and face a bit swollen. She said the police told this this was unusual for Tulear.

    I don't get it. Did you open the door or what? Did they break the door or you just open it for them?

    Shit men! Lucky at the end no more serious cuts or bruises. But bad enough already.

    You didn't sleep with a girl? She could have screamed louder. And try next time to shout: "Afoooo. ". means fire and gets normally more attention.

    To use pepper spray can be tricky and even get the attacker more engaged.

    Loosing money. Makes one angry but replaceable.

    Loosing passport. A tiem consuming mess.

    Loosing Tablet or phone. You feel like a blind men.

    Loosing credit card. An absolute drama, even worse if together with the phone.

    But most scary if you suffer serious body damage. Therefore I would try to move away in a corner and let them get the money. I also have a 2nd card stashed away with the copy of the passport and a simple 30. -$ Nokia with important numbers in it.

    Hope you are safe now, mate.

    FD is on my list for my next trip to the south.

    DO: Tulear, been there many times. Its a bit of a wild west town. Many stranded expats living there. A number of decent hotels and restaurants. The few discos are ok for hunting. But once its dark, roads getting deserted and you better watch your back. For me, 2 or 3 nights are ok. Then I move on to Ifaty / Mangily at the beach. If you like to have pied dans l'eau and relax in a beach front cottage, the filles will find you. If not, walk Friday or Saturday to the 2 discos on the main road.

    Sea, sun and sex. Nothing else to do.

    Diego Suarez (antsiranana)

    As I'm new on this forum, I would like to greet you all and to thank you for sharing these precious information.

    I had been 3 times in Madagascar and I will be back in July and August. I m looking for buddies interested in travelling together and have some good and naughty experiences with nice girls.

    Let me share my last trip in Diego Suarez at the beginning of this year.

    Diego Suarez is kind of special in Madagascar, this city has a nice atmosphere of liberty as it is supposed to have been libertalia, a city created by pirates during the 17th century. Anyway you can find khat to be sold in the street, people smoking in some places and have sex very easily.

    First, I met a local male friend that helped me a lot. I could rent cars from his relatives (20 K to 30 K a day), this was very useful to move any time and to save some money. He also helped me for security, for prices, to find and to translate to the girls (even if I m French) and we had some nice experiences taking one or two girls at the same time together. I noticed that some ladies are willing to do a lot with vahaza but when there is a local guy, sometimes they are more reluctant.

    City: You have a main street with fancy bars, restaurant (Rue Colbert). The center for night life is near the expensive hotel called LE grand hotel. Parallel to this street, you have a street (Boulevard Etienne) with a lot of very good local cheap food sold in the street (from 7 pm to morning). Don t be afraid to go to eat there late, I never had troubles.

    From 3 pm to 11 pm: The Vahine is the place to be: Big terrasse, Live music, lots of girls, you can buy cigarettes and play their crappy pool if you like. Just reserve the girl you like, 90 % are available, lot of semi pro there. I also liked to go to a place called les arcades during the afternoon, no girls but nice atmosphere, cheap, and a courtyard to relax without noise.

    From 9 or 10 pm to 1 / 2 am: The taxi be is just 3 minutes from the Vahine, you ll see everybody migrating there: Live music, nice place and on Thursdays there is a contest of local dance that will turn you on for a long time I guarantee you, pools tables also available. You ll see some very nice girls there but most of them (the more interesting ones) are waiting for you to do the first step.

    From 12 pm to morning: You have clubs 10 mn walk from the taxi be, the Nouveau casino is a club and a bar linked together, in club 5 K a drink, free entrance for vahaza and girls, nice dance floor with sexy girls dancing. It would be very difficult to not find company here. Don t hesitate to dance with multiple girls, they are very open minded, it s a lot of fun. Late in the night, you can always find girls in front of the nouveau casino, not the best one. Two other clubs nearby: la boite noire and l'etincelle I think, just cross the street from the grand hotel, but I never went there.

    Prices: For a night, between 20 K to 50 K, usually 30 K is nice.

    The landscape of mountains and the bay are beautiful but you get the impression it only exists because some poor bastards got shipwrecked there in 1504. If you're looking for swanky restaurants or a vazaha scene, forget it. The 'anglophone' bar on Bradt is long gone and Chez George on Libanona beach is a nice spot but was mostly deserted and closes at 8 pm. Security seems an issue; I changed hotel after being warned by staff and girls not to walk outside it after dark (although I already had done with no problem) and was told to call a taxi from Chez George.

    I moved into LE Tournesol which is 100 m up the road from the only bar with customers midweek. Florida. I liked it, but saw the same faces night after night. Other places were empty or closed, and the mine outside town seems to leave a much smaller footprint than I expected. I was there Monday to Friday and things were way busier my last night..
    Hi Tungsten2,

    I'll give a look to Morombe and Andavadoaka next month but not info on the thread.

    Please tell me something about Morombe. Every info is really welcome.

    Thanks

    I spent a few days in FD in April. Always been curious as it never gets a mention even on a French website. The guidebooks say it's pretty and it's poor and is falling down. . . That's about it. On the slim chance it was a Shangri-La I got on a plane.

    If you have time to burn FD may be worth a visit but it's definitely not a stand alone destination. Glad I went, but five days was plenty.

    Drove across to Tulear afterwards and paid 2 for ST in la brousse!

    Also visited Diego, Majunga and Morombe which I'll update about soon.
