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 much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of 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.
