Jamaica is a lush, tropical Caribbean island known for its beachy pleasures and whatnot. People usually choose Montego Bay and Negril as their vacation destinations here, however, its capital city has charms more appealing than either of these destinations. Enter, Kingston. The Jamaican capital is best described metaphorically as a coin with two faces – The Downtown: with its more rustic, olden feel, this part of the city is filled with courts, banks, street markets and other landmarks that have great historical importance; The Uptown: with its hotels, restaurants, high-rise buildings and all the blingy perfectness that modern neatness so characterizes with. Book cheap flight tickets to Kingston to experience this amazingly ironical city with your own eyes. Airlines tickets can be booked online.
