The capital of the country, Nairobi is the largest city of Kenya which is vastly growing to be a modern city like woodlands or Kuala Lumpur. After a few years, Nairobi and the old capital of Kenya called Mombasa will adorn themselves with vivid skyscrapers, wide roads, and modern city sights.
In other areas, the scenarios are quite different. Neither skyscrapers nor any wide roads can be seen in the villages, the agricultural leftover lands with rich soil and water can be perceived in the rural village of Kenya. The green and yellow lands are enriched with meadows, trees, and wildlife. On the land, farmers can be found cultivating while singing songs in unison.
Kenya has one of the most dynamic climates ever. Sometimes it is hot and sometimes it is cold but not cold enough to snow. Generally, most of the Kenyan regions are cold but the temperature may rise up to 12-14 degrees Celsius which is also not that hot either. In cities like Nairobi and Kitale, the shine of the hot sun can be felt sometimes. In the coastal areas, the temperature is mostly controlled by the Indian Ocean.
From general perspectives, Kenya stays warm from December to March and cool from June to August. Also, the natural disaster or hazards like heavy drought and flooding are also common in Kenya during the rainy season.

According to the vision of 2030, the country has implemented numerous plans to reduce vulnerability and secure the livelihood of Kenyan people. Waste management system, climate change adaptation, high-risk disaster management, and many other plans have been implemented by the Kenyan government.
As we have already mentioned earlier, natural resource is one of the most established income sources for the people of Kenya. So, a large contribution to the GDP comes from the agricultural sector. The country is known for producing corn products, tea, coffee, wheat, pyrethrum, and more.
Tea and coffee are exported to other countries in Asia and Europe. In low lands, cotton, sisal, coconuts nuts, pineapple, etc. are cultivated. The exporting sector fluctuates during the rainy season as the country is vulnerable to it.

Also, Kenyans are divided by the language, such as Bantu-speaking people, Nilotic-speaking people, Cushitic speaking people, and more. Yet, surprisingly the main languages in Kenya are Swahili and English.
In the rural area, Kenyans wear the most fascinating outfits with the traditional colorful ornaments. In the cities, just like the other countries, people prefer attire and corporate wear.
Traditional roadside gathering or crowding in the restaurants can be seen in the Kenyan cities as well. All the people of Kenya, regardless of rural or urban, are generous, kind, and moral. Tourists can easily fit in with them and they will be happy hosting the guest with generosity and respect.
