Jamaica - Kingston & Around (Chapter)
This is the Kingston & Around chapter from Lonely Planet’s Jamaica guidebook.
Jamaica’s one true city, Kingston is undiluted and unadulterated Jamaica; its brisk business pace and chaotic traffic contrasts sharply with the timeless languor of resorts and villages elsewhere on the island, making Kingston an ideal base for exploring eastern Jamaica.
- retrace the steps of Blackbeard and Henry Morgan at the former pirate capital of the world, Port Royal
- appreciate the vision of Jamaican artists at the internationally acclaimed National Gallery of Jamaica
- restaurants & accommodations
- get into the groove at the riotous sound-system party, Weddy Weddy Wednesdays, which rattles the windows of Burlington Ave every Wednesday
Coverage includes: Kingston & around, Castleton Gardens, East of Kingston, Port Royal & around, West of Kingston, Spanish Town & around and May Pen & around.
