Kingston is the capital city of Jamaica and is home to a variety of attractions from well-maintained historical sites to fascinating museums, delicious food and a thriving nightlife. Visitors can dive into local history by exploring the National Gallery of Jamaica, where centuries of artworks tell the story of the island. This city is also home to the Bob Marley Museum with lots of memorabilia and personal belongings of the iconic musician on display.

At the local markets, Kingston tends to specialise in a few particular items. The coffee is especially good despite being relatively affordable, while one of the most notable aspects of local markets is the array of hot sauces, many of which are made with the local Scotch bonnet pepper. Travellers can taste it in several local dishes including jerk chicken and Escovitch fish. For fun after dark, check out the collection of clubs in the New Kingston area, many of which are open until the early morning.
