Kenya Tourist Traps: 55 reviews and 55 photos

When asked for ball pens, it is a trap to get you into his shop. There is no need to use ball pen in exchange for a better price or any special price. Merchants who collect these ball pens may sell them at high price later. (http://www.infohome.dk/kenya/scamscri.html.en)

Fun Alternatives: If like to buy anything from the shop, just pay one-fifth of the suggested price.
