It can be chaotic but visiting this city's market is an unforgettable experience. Be wary of touts - you can wander about the place yourself if you're just there to check it out. You will need assistance if you're looking for something specific though. As with most crowded places in Africa, you'll want to minimize the valuables you take in with you but don't let this discourage you from going because a visit to the market can be an exciting, interesting, and fun outing.

Kumasi is the capital city of the Ashanti region, a very important and historical centre for Ghana. Tradition is held very high in Kumasi and blends very well with modernity. There is a wide range of attractions in Kumasi. The Manhyia Palace, the seat of the King of Ashanti and members of the royal family is situated in the northern part of the city.
