Akwaaba! The Ghanaian capital, Accra, is a chaotic-but-intriguing representation of modern Ghana. While it lacks some of the hospitality and beauty of the rest of the country, it serves as the business and international hub as well as the jumping point for domestic travels. It is a city full of contrast, with street food and gourmet meals, glitz and poverty, traditional wraps and designer brands all being presented side by side. Accra offers an intense yet fascinating look at modern Ghana, and so long as you can see past the mess, you can even learn to love it.

Welcome to Ghana, the glamorous West African country, rich in history, diverse culture, beautiful landscape, clean beaches, natural forests, and many more exciting sights, events, adventure, and activities. Yes, welcome to African's friendliest nation. From the first day you set foot on Ghanaian soil, you will enjoy the genuine love and warmth of the people... yes, the special welcome that will definitely make you feel at home, away from home. Once again Akwaaba!!!Accra is the capital of Ghana, and the place most tourists begin their trips. I wouldn't spend too much time, here, as there are many other cities with a lot more to do that are a lot less hectic, although a trip to the Cultural Cente, James Town, and the various markets is a good way to spend your time here.
