Find Out What Mogadishu Has to Offer to Expats

Mogadishu is the capital of Somalia, and the biggest city in the African country. Known locally as Xamar, the historic old town is popular with tourists, and features the famous Mogadishu Mosque. Also home to a beautiful cathedral, the city was once one of the most beautiful in the region and is now being rebuilt back to its former glory. A wave of reconstruction and investment in the capital in 2012 in particular saw large numbers of expats enter and re-enter the city. The city also features the largest market in Somalia, the Bakaara Market. Created in 1972, everything and anything can be found here. Many locals treat expats with a huge amount of respect and hospitality in the city, and expats usually live comfortably and happily.
