(EN) Mombasa is the second-largest city in Kenya. Lying next to the Indian Ocean, it has a major port and an international airport. The city also serves as the centre of the coastal tourism industry. Also known as Mombas in colonial times, its name derives from Manbasa. This was the Arabic name of the former sultanate of Mvita, which had its capital here. In modern times the town is the headquarters of Mombasa District, which, like most other districts in Kenya, is named after its chief town.

The Mombasa–Nairobi Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) is a standard gauge railway that connects the port city of Mombasa to Kenya's capital city Nairobi. The railway replaces the parallel metre-gauge railway that was originally built by the British in the 19th century. The prime contractor on the railway was the China Road and Bridge Corporation. The project is estimated to cost US$3.6 billion, with 90% supplied by a loan from the Exim Bank of China and 10% coming from the Kenyan government. 25,000 Kenyans were hired to work on the railway.The design capacity of the railway is 22 million tonnes per year. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mombasa%E2%80%93Nairobi_Standard_Gauge_Railway Oversea Projects中国建设的海外工程 https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLE3LV1t4ql0NvTcLhop03pVvmUuWkU_T3 蒙内铁路（蒙巴萨港-内...
