General opinion: Nairobi is now a very safe tourist destination with varied attractions. It enjoys a very dynamic human cultures. The transport system is efficient with roads, rails and airports within it. The management is awesome under able leadership of governor Dr.Evans Kidero and his deputy Mr Jonathan Mueke.

General opinion: This is wonderful, Kenya can offer such scenic environment? I must travel and see with my own eyes. Right from the coast to the Top of Mt. Kenya and from the Lake Victoria to the east. I can see the beauty of my beloved Nation. We must arise and build our great Nation. Let our children learn to love each other from us loving one another.

General opinion: Nairobi is a place that can be what you want to experience, it caters for all cadres of economic class of people in all matters, health, business, transport, entertainment. And to top it all it isn't that expensive. At least all varieties of indulgence are available to all even though some can afford it one night a year it is available.

General opinion:  Nairobi, Kenya’s capital, is situated at an elevation of about 1660 metres in the highlands of the southern part of the country.
Located in an area once frequented by the pastoral Masai, (Nairobi comes from the Masai word, "Enkare Nyrobi" meaning the "place of cool water"), Nairobi was founded in the late 1890s as a British railroad camp on the Mombasa-to-Uganda railroad.
From 1899 to 1905 it served as a British provincial capital. In 1905 the city became the capital of the British East Africa Protectorate and in 1963 the capital ... More of independent Kenya
Today, Nairobi is Kenya's principal economic, administrative, and cultural centre as well as one of the largest and fastest growing cities in the whole of Africa.
The University of Nairobi (1956), Kenya Polytechnic (1961), and Kenya Conservatoire of Music (1944) are here.
From the wildlife to the nightlife, Nairobi is unique: fantastic music scenes, excellent international restaurants and an endless and colourful array of shops and markets, are everywhere.
The main airport is Jomo Kenyatta International, at 15 kms out of the city centre.

General opinion: Very hectic moving from one point to the other. One has to very carefull which bus to board as two different directions have the same bus number. One also has to be very carefull with whatever luggage they are carrying as ut is very likely to be snatched by the street boys.

General opinion: Public transport has been ignored by the goverment causing much loss in man hours as many people avoid the dirty and unreliable MATATU and drive their many small cars to and from work. I would suggest that the goverment invests more in mass passenger ferrying than road expantion. A case in point is the thika super highwa, where the number of vehicles have increased threefold since the expantion started.

General opinion: Nairobi is definitely a city to visit. It turns from one hot city during the day to an even hotter city during the night (if u know what i mean). I love it. I love the people here but the only downside is that in some areas its not very safe, otherwise its definitely the city to be stuck in.
