General opinion: Kisumu is such a cool place to be and enjoy, it has a big lake called lake Victoria and many physical features that one will never get bored looking at. Kisumu is a place for investments if you didn't know and there are more than 5oo companies here, so many nice and classy hotels, the culture of the people here is also just amazing.

General opinion: Kisumu is the most hospitable and secure of Kenya's major towns. The residents of Kisumo are very welcoming, especially to guests seeking guidance on a number of activities within the city. A sleeping giant has awoken and is now shaking the whole Eastern Africa region. Other than the avoidable top class hotels, remember to visit the famous Tom Mboya Labour College and Dunga Beach. The Kisumu International Airport joins you to the rest of the world.

General opinion: Kisumu city is generally safe since one can comfortably walk at mid-night from town to house without problem. Economically, its very slow and never aggressive in her business prospects, people are reluctant to work, or doing very shady work. Living cost is fairly pocket friendly, since with 30/= itashiba "nyoyo na uji". Kisumo is good.

General opinion: The port city of Kisumu is in western Kenya. The third largest city in the country, it is home to an estimated 322,724 people.
An equatorial town, Kisumu is hot all year round with temperatures around 83F.
The city experiences two wet seasons: April-June and October-November.
In the olden days, the economy depended on the main port. Today Kisumu is the commercial center of a prosperous farm region; it also has a successful oil export industry.

Kisumu has a multi-ethnic population, with a majority of the inhabitants coming from the Luo tribe.

General opinion: Kisumu is widely open to development in terms of investments. There are available land in the outskirts of the CBD. It requires a lot of planning for a foreigner to invest in Kisumu.

General opinion: KISUMU is a very well located city with a high potential for growth. But I am worried the city planning does not favor the growth. If properly planned it can be a very beautiful place to be. Kisumu other than Mombasa should be a holyday destination for local and tourist. Kisumu despite being 3rd largest city in Kenya, it is perhaps the slowest in growth. Money circulation is too low, subjecting life to be very expensive to lower and middle class. Investment oportunities are also low, to add salt on pepper frequent violence eruptions is harting the allready fragile investment programmes. A lot need to be done to make Kisumu attractive. Edgar.

General opinion: A place to be with a purpose. Kisumu needs hardworking people, you may say that life is hard but it is you who is making it to be so. Then when it comes to tours, Kisumu is the best place to be because of its natural features e.g L. Victoria.

General opinion: Its a city in a third world country but it offers so much and is so much safer than Nairobi etc. The people are lovely and theres plenty to see. It was named the UN's first 'Millenium City' in the world due to its potential, security and investment is now pooring in. See this link below for loads of info on the topic. Stay in Kisumu in a Guest house, just out side from the town centre for noise sake and not too near the lake to stay away from the mosquitos and your'll be fine.
