Kigali is truly the heart of Rwanda. Not only is it the capital and the largest city, but all roads lead to/through Kigali. If your Rwandan travel plans send you to different regions of the country, expect to stop by through Kigali in between each. For a city in a developing country, it is probably more modernized than you are expecting. There are grocery stores that offer many of the luxury items you'd expect to see in the US (at double or triple the cost) and females freely go to nightclubs unaccompanied, wearing stylish mini-dresses and high heels.

 

Most Rwandan tourist attractions are not located in Kigali: historical attractions are concentrated in the historic capital and natural attractions are dispersed in rural areas. But that does not mean that you should consider Kigali only as a place to transfer from airplane to bus to car. In addition to the few tourist attractions, this is the place to enjoy some surprising luxuries (round of golf? massage?) and stock up on souvenirs.
