There are many places in the world that have been underrated as tourism attractions. Accra, in Ghana is one such place which has a lot to offer to the tourists. There are a lot of different places in this city which make it an appealing traveling destination.

Ghana's beating heart probably won't inspire love letters, but you might just grow to like it. The capital's hot, sticky streets are perfumed with sweat, fumes and yesterday's cooking oil. Like balloons waiting to be burst, clouds of dirty humidity linger above stalls selling mangoes, banku (fermented maize meal) and rice. The city's tendrils reach out towards the beach, the centre and the west, each one a different Ghanaian experience.

The city doesn't have any heavy-hitting sights like Cape Coast or Elmina but it does have good shopping, excellent nightlife and definitely the best selection of eating options in Ghana.

Let us have a glance at the top ten places that you must consider visiting in Accra.

  1. NATIONAL THEATRE - The National Theatre, built in 1990, is one of the best places in Accra when it comes to performing arts. The theatre had been funded by the Chinese Government. Before the establishment of National Theatre, there was no place for local talent to unleash their capabilities. Tourists can visit the theatre and see the different types of performing arts. The three companies behind all performances are The National Theatre Players, The National Dance Company, and The National Symphony Orchestra.
  2. JAMESTOWN - Tourists who are particularly interested in knowing about the history of Accra will find Jamestown a good place to visit. The place had originally been established back in 17th century. The place has been considered one of the historic treasures of Accra. It is still being used as a fishing harbor by the city fishermen. The expansion of Accra city has also spread to Jamestown. Jamestown, once a scarcely populated area has a lot of population now.
  3. MAKOLA MARKET - When it comes to shopping, we can find all kinds of malls and supermarkets. But for traditional African shopping, there is no better place than the Makola Market. Tourists will not only be able to get a taste of typical African shopping but would also be able to get all daily use items from Makola Market like fresh food items, medicines, shoes, and pots etc. Tourists who intend to cook by themselves will find Makola Market a great place for their cooking supplies.
  4. LABADI BEACH - There are many beaches in Accra. Labadi Beach is one of the most famous beaches of all. There is a very small entrance fee for tourists who want to enter the beach. Tourists who are already residing in ahotel within the beach premises do not need to pay any entrance fee. The beach is well maintained owing to the efforts put in by local hotels. Tourists coming to the beach can enjoy a lot of musical performances like playback, hiplife, cultural drumming, and reggae.
  5. KWAME NKRUMAH MAUSOLEUM AND MEMORIAL PARK - Every nation has its heroes to whom tributes are paid. Accra is no exception. This museum pays tribute to the first president and one of the most active independent strugglers of Ghana named Dr Kwane Nkrumah. Dr Kwane Nkrumah was among the forerunners in getting independence for Ghana. Tourists interested in knowing about the freedom struggle of Ghana will find a lot of valuable information in this museum.
  6. INDEPENDENCE SQUARE - This independence square is made to celebrate the independence of Ghana. Ghana gained independence in 1957. The square is also known as Black Star Square. The square has an eternal flame which had been lit back in 1961 by Nkrumah himself.
  7. E.B. DUBOIS MEMORIAL CENTRE - This is a centre dedicated to an American author and civil rights activist who dedicated his entire life to attain equality rights for black people. The write becamedisappointed by the fact that black people may never get equal rights and came from the US to Ghana. The center has been converted into a library with a lot of historical literature and monuments. Tourist must visit house no 22 where W.E.B. DuBois used to live.
  8. OSU CASTLE - Osu Castle had been built back in 17th century. Over the period of time many rulers ruling Ghana had claims over it. The castle had been used for different purposes like for storing slaves before shipping and as headquarters for Danish Gold Coast etc. Tourists can visit the place despite of its controversial nature but they are not allowed to take pictures because of the history associated with this castle.
  9. ARTISTS ALLIANCE GALLERY - This is a very big gallery consisting of three floors dedicated to sculptures, fabrics, and paintings. There are all kinds of art items on display for shopping of tourists. You can buy items costing from few dollars to few thousand dollars. This is a great place for art loving enthusiasts who are typically interested in buying exotic art work.
  10. KANE KWEI CARPENTRY WORKSHOP - This workshop belongs to one of the famous coffin designers Kane Kwei who designed coffins for people with carvings on them related to their own passion or life. The workshop is now owned by the grandson of Kane Kwei. Tourists visit this place to know more about the coffins and hear stories aboutthe original inventor of these coffins. These coffins are still used in funerals locally.

There are a lot of options for travelling around Ghana and transportation is very chaotic. Buses, tro tros (minivans) and taxis are commonly used across the country.

  1. Tro tros - Tro tros are private owned minivans that hold approximately 16 to 24 people and are designed to hold as much luggage as people. Tro tros are uncomfortable, and somewhat dangerous, but offer a very exciting adventure, therefore they are recommended for short journeys only.You can hail a tro tro anywhere along the road or from outside the terminal. There is no timetable nor a map with a route. Tro tros wait until they are full and then it’s ready for departure.The tro tro fares are very low since the rates are set by the government.
  2. Taxis - The most efficient way to travel in the cities is probably taking a taxi and they are everywhere!Some taxis are metered and registered while other taxis are not registered and prices should negotiated. All the taxis in Ghana have a yellow painted mudguard, so that makes it easy to distinguish them. The taxi driver picks and drops passengers along the road and expats should remember the taxi service is a shared serviced, so there is no chance you will be alone in the taxi! Bear in mind that if a taxi driver believes you are a foreigner, he automatically believes that you are rich! Note that you should always settle a fare before departure. Often a taxi driver might try to overcharge you especially if you’re foreign, so don’t be shy about bargaining. Taxi fares start from GHS2 (US$0.90) for the shortest journeys, up to GHS20 (US$ 9) for a trip to the airport. If you travel within the city limits, the fare will be between GHS2 (US$0.90) and GHS6 (US$ 2.60).
  3. Airtravel Flying between the major cities is the fastest way to travel. Citylink, Starbow, Africa World Airlines and Antrak Air are the major domestic airlines operating in Ghana and all have offices in Accra. Domestic flights are not that popular as they tend to be relatively expensive, and are therefore rarely full so there’s the possibility to book your flight at the airport. All international flights are through Kotoka International Airport, located in Accra, that is served by both Western and African airlines. Kotoka airport is very central and lots of taxis and airport shuttles are available to take you to other parts of the city.
  4. Buses - Buses in Ghana are generally comfortable, fast and safe, however tickets cost between GHS14 (US$6) and GHS24 (US$10.50), depending on what type of bus you choose. Expats and travellers should remember buses in Ghana charge an extra fee for luggage. There are several different bus companies such as Kingdom Transport Services, City Express, Metrobus and Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU). However, State Transport Company (STC) is the most comprehensive bus service.State Transport Company (SCT)used to be wholly owned by the Ghanaian government, and is now partially privatised. It schedules bus services that run between most major cities. It is recommended, where possible, to book your ticket days in advance because the air conditioned buses aremuch more comfortable and those tickets sell out faster. The VIP bus company is comfortable and has more flexible timetables. Note that SCT and VIP only depart from the bus station that’s east of the Obetsebi Lamptey Circle in Accra.
