Its a big city with good places and restaurant but without a lot of taxies. The weather evoluate between windy, sunny and rainy; this whith hot nights. Life seems beautiful in the night because of all the lights and because of the darkness of the sky. It's awesome. There is a place that i really liked, the port on the river Wouri; the view is memorable. There are some small villages around the end of the city so simples but full of the nature beauty and where you can buy some typical cameroonian meals such as miondo or tapioca which are taken from a plant call in french manioc.Above all, the kind people of this city will be your better experience.
