Lilongwe is the capital city of Malawi. You’ve got the incredibly modern New City, which is the city centre filled with ministries, embassies, airline offices, travel agents, mini-malls and office buildings.
Then you’ve got Old Town, which is very inspiring. Here you’ll find the market, several restaurants and cafes, the bus station and some good accommodation. The market’s quite an interesting place to visit, even if you’re not planning on buying anything. It’s filled with pots and pans, vegetables, car and bike parts, live chickens and dried fish.
