Mombasa City Tour
Mombasa uniquely combines tradition and modernity. Smells of cinnamon, anise, curry are in the air at the Soko spice market in the old town. Fruit, vegetable, and meat merchants clang loudly to the customers in the Digo Road, the people move slowly in traditional Arab robes through narrow, winding streets. In the old part of the 14 km² islands of Mombasa, numerous buildings, food, and clothing styles testify to the influence of the Arab merchants who settled here. But Mombasa is by no means only influenced by the Arab culture. For centuries, there has been a lively cultural and economic exchange between India, Arabia, Europe, and Persia. This is evidenced by the Hindu and Sikh temples, the Catholic cathedral, and a Jain temple. Explore the city full of coastal culture!
