Nairobi has been named the third best destination in the world for 2018 after Ishigaki in Japan and Kapaa in Hawaii by top travel site Trip Advisor.

The travel site released the top ten best destinations in the world describing Nairobi as “an interesting place to visit due to the many holiday spots for globe trotters seeking something different”.

The winners were decided using an algorithm that measures the yearly increase in positive Trip Advisor ratings for restaurants, hotels and attractions.

The number of destination bookings as compared to other years also played a part in the rankings.

Nairobi was further described as the safari capital of Africa with the Nairobi National Park and the Giraffe Centre being listed as some of the top sights to visit.
