Antsirabe is the capital city of the Vakinankaratra region, in the central highlands of Madagascar. It’s a popular spa town, known for its thermal springs and many colorful rickshaws. The city’s French colonial buildings include the Hôtel des Thermes, with its grand facade. Stalls at the souk-like, outdoor Sabotsy Market sell clothing and local produce. Large Lake Andraikiba is just west of the city.

In this city you can chose to go south or to the west 🙂

There is also the Fahaleovantena Tribes monument.
The 18 tribes of Madagascar are beautifully here represented and this crafted stone proudly dominates one end of the huge rectangular square on Antsirabe’s Grande Avenue.
