Abidjan

Abidjan ©
As Cote d'Ivoire's largest city and economic hub, Abidjan boasts the reputation of West Africa's party capital, while its rich culture remains evident in its numerous film festivals and a booming music scene.
Change things up with these side-trips from Abidjan: Grand Bassam (Ex Poste de Douane, Musee National des Costumes, &more). There's still lots to do: stop by CAVA - Centre Artisanal de la Ville, get a new perspective on nature at Musee des Civilisations de Cote d’Ivoire, explore the striking landscape of Banco National Park, and visit The Plateau.

To find photos, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the Abidjan sightseeing planning tool.

Toronto, Canada to Abidjan is an approximately 21.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 5 hours traveling from Toronto to Abidjan. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Toronto in July since evenings lows in Abidjan dip to °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Mon) to allow time to drive to Yamoussoukro.

Start off your visit on the 7th (Tue): identify plant and animal life at Abokouamekro Game Reserve, ponder the world of politics at Palais Presidentiel, thentake in the spiritual surroundings of Basilica of Our Lady of Peace, and finally take in the spiritual surroundings of Grande Mosquee.
