Mombasa sex tourism and nightlife

Mombasa is probably the best place in Kenya in terms of nightlife and sex tourism. There is enough institutions that like to spend time and get acquainted with the girls. Price per night from 1000 KES ($ 12) on average $ 20, but it is not a mandatory factor. Girls in Mombasa sociable and easy to go on contact, and many are willing to do Me. From nightclubs, I can recommend the club Kazaurina (Sasaurina) which is in the MTAP (Mtwapa). Nearby are several small bars. The cost of entry to the clubs $ 3-5.

Transport in Mombasa

In Mombasa shuttle minibus (matatu) which in addition to the driver and navigator have still shouting stop. But still driving in the matatu, you should at least a little bit to navigate the city and present it looks like the place where you need to go, otherwise you can take away matatu very far, yet you do not understand this. But in any case, a ride on the matatu is that would feel an African flavor. Drivers decorate their cars with colorful lights and more, the cooler, as well as include loud music. Of course in Mombasa have a taxi, but the taxi is a good alternative to tuk-tuk - indoor scooter with space for passengers and not with a big boot. Tuk-tuk or taxi stand near the super market will be much more expensive than those that can be ostnaovit on the road. But the most economical mode of transport is a motorbike. It does not make the big work on the road or nearby stop the motorcyclist, who will take you to your destination.

Mombasa Security

Mombasa basically a safe city, unless of course the evenings do not roam the back streets. We visited Mombasa in different places and in tourism and not very good, and in the evening went to night clubs and not have had no problems. But all the same precautions no one has canceled.
