There aren't any obvious points of interest in Djibouti city except for the Central Market (Marche Central) which buzzes with activity in the mornings. By the afternoon, Djibouti city gets very quiet and it's not just the heat that folks are avoiding, but the national pastime - chewing Qat, begins in earnest. Qat (or Khat) is a mild narcotic. The leaves of the Qat plant are chewed, it has to fresh for the narcotic effect to work best. The daily Qat delivery from Ethiopia to Djibouti city arrives at around 1pm in the local markets. Djibouti's location on the Red Sea means there are some excellent diving and swimming opportunities particularly around the islands of Maskali and Moucha in the Gulf of Tadjoura. It takes 30-40 minutes to get to the islands by boat.
