Before going out of the city to explore the star attractions from Rwanda’s tourism arsenal, spend 2-3 days savoring what the city has to offer. After wearing off the jet lag, just go for a walk in the always bustling Nyamirambo street to enjoy the Rwandan version of ‘the (part of) City that never sleeps.

If you’re an artistry type, visit the traditional Ivuka and Uburanga art galleries or go to the new addition Inema or the hip Yego Arts gallery. If you want to collect local souvenirs which can be cool and practical at the same time, you must visit the cooperatives.

The catch is you have to have your ‘hard bargain’ cap on for all the purchases you want to make, believe me – this “war” is always fought with a smile time and you would never feel defeated.  I can keep bragging about the city until you finish all the available time you have for you to visit the rest of the country, so let’s just move on.
