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.

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 Abokouamekro Game Reserve, and get a sense of history and politics at Palais Presidentiel.
