Travel site TripAdvisor has listed Nairobi among the top 10 world destinations for 2018. Nairobi came third behind Ishigaki (Japan) and Kapaa (Hawaii).

According to the company, the winners were decided using an algorithm that measures the year-on-year increase in positive TripAdvisor ratings for restaurants, hotels and attractions, plus the number of destination bookings compared to previous years.

“Nairobi was described as an interesting place to visit for urban explorers due to the many holiday spots for globe-trotters seeking something different,” TripAdvisor wrote on Tuesday.

SAFARI CAPITAL

The website also described Nairobi as “the safari capital of Africa and an energetic, modern city that serves as a fascinating introduction to both wildlife and nightlife.”

Ishigaki, the top destination, is a small island in Japan’s Okinawa Prefecture. It has landscapes including sandy beaches, rare coral, mountains and mangrove forests.

Kapaa is a small town at the base of Kauai’s Nounou Mountain with many hotels, shopping centres and restaurants. It’s also popular with watersport fans who can go kayaking and skiing.

Other cities which made the top 10 included Halifax (Canada), Gdansk (Poland), San Jose (Costa Rica), Riga (Latvia), Rovinj (Croatia), Nerja (Spain) and Casablanca (Morocco).
