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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Grand Bassam (Pont De La Victoire, Musee National des Costumes, & more). There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at St. Paul's Cathedral, admire the natural beauty at Jardin botanique de Bingerville, have some family-friendly fun at Dream Zone Virtual Reality, and explore the wealth of natural beauty at Banco National Park.

Yamoussoukro

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.
When in Yamoussoukro, make a side trip to see Cathedral Saint Michel in Bouake, approximately 1h 45 min away. There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Basilica of Our Lady of Peace, look for all kinds of wild species at Mount Nimba Strict Nature Reserve, and get a sense of history and politics at Palais Presidentiel.

To find traveler tips, photos, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Yamoussoukro online trip maker .

You can drive from Abidjan to Yamoussoukro in 2.5 hours. Another option is to do a combination of train and car. Traveling from Abidjan in November, Yamoussoukro is little chillier at night with lows of 25°C. You will leave for Man on the 1st (Sun).
