Things to Do in Victoria
Being the only major urban area in Seychelles, Victoria is country's main economic and commercial hub. The city is home to about a third of the population of Seychelles. It may be compact in size but Victoria has unlimited potential to fulfill all fantasies of a tropical paradise. The bustling markets, lively downtown, manicured botanical gardens, and a handful of attractive old colonial buildings make this city worth visiting.
Shopping in Sir Selwyn Clarke (SSC) Market in Victoria is an exciting thing to do. The market may be small by African standards but tourists can pick up wooden furniture, spices, jewelry, and more. However, one should note it down that the market remains closed on Saturday afternoon and every Sunday.
Besides shopping, one can visit to attractions like the Victoria Clock Tower, which is seen as Seychelles very own version of London’s Big Ben. The Natural History Museum is also a great place to see many displays of the endemic wildlife of Seychelles. The city is the launch-pad for all the island excursions in Seychelles. Ravishing beaches, marine national parks, dense forests, and outdoor thrills like surfing or hiking are only a few minutes away.
