About Malindi Kenya
Malindi is an amazing place among other destinations in East Africa. As residents of Malindi Kenya, we have enjoyed many years of favorable tourism. From time in memorial, tourism in Malindi relied on word of mouth of a few individual tourists that spread the word to Italy. This made Malindi "Little Italy", a haven visited mostly by Italian businessmen and pensioners, politicians and celebrities.
Taking a stroll in the streets of Malindi Kenya is one of the amazing things one can do. a few glances on the houses built in different parts of town and you can immediately tell of the swahili influence on the architecture. A few years back, most of the houses were thatched with palm tree leaves, commonly known as makuti. Like other communities, with change of times, makuti thatching have been replaced with ironsheets. However, there are some parts that still value this kind of culture. Most beach hotels, villas and resorts have this kind of roofing.
The swahili culture has a big influence on the dressing of the natives. Women wearing buibuis and men putting on kanzu is an indicator of the presence of Islam within the town. Traditionally, women adorn Khangas as wrappers while men made shirts and trousers fro them. Leather sandals for both men and women are a norm. They compliment well kanzu, buibui or khanga attires.
