Zanzibar has become a popular tourist destination due to the beautiful virgin beaches and influence of Arabic, Indian and African cultures on the Island. The Island is mostly Muslim and was a center for slave trade, and its estimated that around 600,000 slaves were sold on Zanzibar between 1830 and 1873. (Photo by: Per-Anders Pettersson)
