Cultural Tourism is concerned with a country’s or regions culture, specifically in terms of lifestyle of the people, history, art, architecture, religion and all the other aspects that make up the way of living of a group of people. Cultural tourism includes tourism in urban areas, particularly historic or large cities and their cultural facilities such as museums and theaters. It can also include tourism in rural areas showcasing the traditions of indigenous cultural communities, and their values and lifestyle. This form of tourism is also becoming generally more popular throughout the world. A research study stated that cultural tourism can play in regional development in different world regions. Cultural tourism is an important tool for celebrating, preserving and promoting a state’s unique heritage. It is also an effective way to stimulate a state’s economy, as it increases opportunities for artists, encourages public participation in the arts and facilitates cultural commerce.

With the many communities, each one of them has their own unique cultures that distinguish them from other communities. 9 Days Kenya Cultural Tourism Safari to Kenya is about more than just wildlife or scenery- the real face of our country is found among the combined faces of Kenya’s many cultures.
