Getting There

Madagascar is by far one of the best, now even though the island is beautiful getting there is the opposite. First, you have to fligh on a plane that's $5,945 for two people just to get there. Plus, the flight is 34 hours and 30 minutes[ www.cheaptickets.com ]. Now, even though that doesnt sound worth it, it is.


When you land, everything is diffrent, all you have to do is step outside the inviting airport to find that your surronded by luxurious hotels, sights, and other fun things there. After you land, you will be happy to find out that your rental car only costed you $23 a day[ www.elephant-rentalcar.com ]. Getting to Madagascar is a pain but being there is free, tropical experence.

Where to Stay

Im staying at the Carlton Hotel. This hotel is the most beatiful hotel there is. It's so amazing that it has TWO resturaunts in it, and a casino, plus a luxurious spa. To top that, this vacationars dream has a nightclub and of course the best pool you will ever see in Antananarivo. And, the thing that matters most, the cost is by far too cheap for a 5 star hotle at only $201 a night. You can find this hotel on

Activities

Madagascar is packed full of fun and exciting things to do. And I'm not talkin about things to do for me, Madagascar is made up of things to do for everyone. To connect, a theme park is made for everyone to have their own adventure.

Problems/Solutions

Problem: One problem to traveling to Madagascar is your safety. Frist, there has been many reportings on people such as americans that are killed in sickening ways due to people beliving the people/person is bad.

Solution: A solution to this problem is to travel with a friend, or someone you trust and stay with them at all times. And, even if that doesn't help you stay away from death, then you can try to do things that won't set people off. Such as doing friendly and nice things.

Problem: Another problem in Madagascar is poverty. Poverty is a really big down factor in Madagascar and with it, that poverty can effect you and your fellow friends who go with you.

Solution: A solution to this poor problem is to not wear nice, and expensive clothes, shoes, and jewlery. If you do, make sure to stay out the poor places and stay near the wealthier and nicer places. But, a beach too could be a nice and easy place to keep those attractive things on.
