Nairobi’s polarising character ensures that the city is reviled and loved in equal measure, and even those who love it might well admit that it’s the kind of place many rave about only once they’re away from it. For those who call it home, the city’s charms include a vibrant cultural life, fabulous places to eat and exciting nightlife. Its detractors point to its horrendous traffic, poor safety levels and its less-than-gorgeous appearance.

Over the last century, Dar es Salaam has transformed from a sleepy Zaramo fishing village into a thriving metropolis of over four million people (and growing). There are also excellent craft markets and restaurants, and nearby sandy beaches and islands. The city’s architecture is a mix of African, Arab, Indian and German, although much of this is now dwarfed by towering high-rises that reflect Dar’s rising prosperity in the golden-hued sunsets shimmering off their glass exteriors. Many travellers bypass ‘Dar’ completely; those that stick around will be rewarded by the city’s eclectic cultural mix and down-to-earth vibe.
As the capital of Denmark, Copenhagen has a long and rich history. It was the center of the Danish empire for hundreds of years, and, as such, it is home to many palaces, historic buildings, and cultural relics. But modern Copenhagen is not a city steeped in the past. The town’s classic architecture and canals are juxtaposed by modern infrastructure, new buildings, and a high tech transit system. There is just a spirit and vibe that screams “Life is good here”. It’s infectious and will have you wondering why more places are like this.
