Mombasa Kenya by Nafisa Rayani

With hundreds of beautiful, captivating holiday destinations around the world to choose from, the question that comes to mind is, "What makes Mombasa, Kenya one of the world's most popular tourist destinations?"

Kenya's second largest city, Mombasa is an island on the country's Eastern coastline that borders the azure Indian Ocean and is home to idyllic palm fringed beaches with soft brilliant white sands. With relatively warm weather all year round, it is the ideal destination for the holiday maker looking for a memorable getaway.

Mombasa is a picturesque culmination of intriguing history and tradition combined with modernity. The city's rich cultures that are still remnant today are as a result of the Portuguese, Arab, African, Persian and British influences over the decades. Fort Jesus, built by the Portuguese in the late sixteenth century in order to guard the Old Port of Mombasa is today one of the area's most popular tourist attractions. Mombasa's history relics are apparent today especially in exotic Old Town Mombasa with its narrow winding streets, intricately carved Swahili doors and women clad in traditional 'bui-bui'. Many of the hotels that dot the coast of Mombasa have been constructed to resemble Swahili villages or have buildings that are infused with Arab inspiration.

However, Mombasa isn't just an island that is steeped in its own culture and history. Modern Western influences are evident in the city where nightclubs are pulsating with music that is both local and cosmopolitan, and eateries that offer cuisines ranging from Italian and Chinese to Indian and traditional Swahili gastronomy. The majority of the natives speak English and the local Swahili language, making travel to this area less daunting for tourists. The North Coast of Mombasa is a hub of activity, with numerous large commercial beach hotels and resorts offering water sports and beach activities, as well as nightclubs and casinos. There are animal sanctuaries and nature trails, plenty of shopping opportunities for locally made handicrafts and fabrics and much to sightsee in this area. The South Coast also has a few large hotels along Diani beach, but offers more secluded private beaches such as Tiwi that has quieter accommodation away from the crowds and is ideal for a couple's retreat. The South Coast is also known for its diving and snorkelling and, in particular, the dolphin dhow safari excursion to Wasini Island.

Whether visitors to Mombasa are young or old, couples or groups, families with children or business travellers, there are options for both activity-filled scenes as well as quiet, secluded beaches to suit their preferences and it isn't difficult to see why this island pulls in the number of tourists it does each year.

Tourist Destinations to See With Your Bali Car Hire by Fransiskus Hendri

Millions of people each year spend their vacations on the island of Bali, the wealthiest island in Indonesia and one that continues to grow as a popular destination for international tourism. Predominantly Hindu in a nation that is majority-Muslim, the island of Bali has retained a unique blend of the Hindu and native animist cultures. Its ceremonies, rituals, and more than 20,000 temples have earned it the nickname "Island of the Gods" - and many of those temples are popular sightseeing destinations for visitors who traverse the island using a Bali car hire.
A Bali car hire is simply the most sensible way to ensure that you are able to visit every site you wish to see on the island. With no railroad infrastructure and little by way of mass transit, travelling by car is the most efficient way to get from one place to another. One four-lane express, the Ngurah Rai, traverses the large population centers of the southern part of Bali, providing quick and easy access to various cities, temples, and other sites of interest.
Your Bali car hire can safely get you to such tourist destinations as Lovina, Jimbaran, and Sanur. In Lovina, you can experience the majestic beauty of sandy beaches formed by black volcanoes, as well as some of the most gorgeous coral reefs in the world. Jimbaran is home to a well-sheltered beach that is surrounded by seaside resort buildings. Sanur's beaches and resorts are popular destinations for many older visitors and their families.
For a day of shopping, followed by a night on the town, it is hard to resist driving your Bali car hire to Kuta. The area s also home to some of the finest surfing to be found on the island. Seminyak is another location with many beaches and resorts, and a site with some of the island's most chic restaurants and clubs - always a hot spot for young visitors to Bali. For a more traditional and culturally enriching outing, Ubud offers a range of dance, art, museums, and craft shops - providing a great deal of the unique Bali flavor that most visitors want to experience.
Of course, the cities are not the only destinations to which smart visitors steer their Bali car hire. A visit to Mount Agung will allow you to view the Besakih "mother temple", while a trip to Bukit Peninsula enables you to view the spectacular temple of Uluwatu - that literally hangs from a cliff! For a day at the mountain lakes, you can travel to Bedugul and feast your eyes on the renowned temple of Ulun Danu Bratan. Or, if your tastes run to the more naturally explosive things of life, the live volcano at Kintamani - Mount Batur - always offers the potential for a truly fascinating day.
With your Bali car hire, you can schedule almost any activity on the island. Golfing, snorkeling, hiking, and diving are all available for visitors, as are trips to almost every area of this island of more than 3 million people. If you're a bird lover, be sure to make time for the national park of West Bali, where you can observe the exotic variety of feathered creatures that Bali has to offer.
