Antsirabe: "It takes about three hours to drive to Antsirabe non stop, but there are numerous suggested pauses and diversions so most people take the best part of a day to do the 169km. The photo opportunities are terrific: all along this stretch of road you will see Merina tombs, and can watch the labour-intensive cultivation of rice paddies."
