Lamu is a city located in the eastern part of Kenya on the Indian Ocean. The city used to be an important transit port for the slave trade, nowadays Lamu is a popular tourist destination. The old city of Lamu is a Unesco world heritage site, mainly because of the specific building style used in the 14th century buildings. The region was originally inhabited by the Swahili people.
