The capital of Gambia is a place of contrasts. Despite being the country's biggest city, the structures are tiny, the tallest is the Arch 22, a bow in the middle of the city that is prohibited to pass through. Everyone must go around except the head of state. Most streets are unpaved and not clean, as in the rest of the population of Gambia is made once a month, so it really depends on the day you visit, whether or not the streets will be clean. In Banjul the streets are full of "shops" where they sell all kinds of things and of people going from one place to another running errands, but there are also many places to see.
