Yamoussoukro
Unlike many of the world's cities with infrastructure trying to keep up with population, Yamoussoukro has no such problem--many of the city's sprawling six-lane highways and hotels were built before anybody lived here.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Basilica of Our Lady of Peace and Grande Mosquee. The adventure continues: stroll through Mount Nimba Strict Nature Reserve and get a sense of history and politics at Palais Presidentiel.
