Abidjan

Paris of Africa

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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Spas & Wellness and Grande Mosquee du Plateau. Change things up with these side-trips from Abidjan: Grand Bassam (Musee National des Costumes & Ex Poste de Douane). And it doesn't end there: stop by The Plateau, look for gifts at Amani Gallery, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Banco National Park, and get a new perspective on nature at Musee des Civilisations de Cote d’Ivoire.

For traveler tips, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Abidjan trip planning app.

Lagos, Nigeria to Abidjan is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Lagos to Abidjan due to the time zone difference. Expect a daytime high around 32°C in August, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Wed) early enough to drive to Yamoussoukro.

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.
Start off your visit on the 6th (Thu): get a sense of history and politics at Palais Presidentiel, take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilica of Our Lady of Peace, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Grande Mosquee, and finally identify plant and animal life at Abokouamekro Game Reserve.

For other places to visit, where to stay, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Yamoussoukro trip planner.

Drive from Abidjan to Yamoussoukro in 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a train. Expect a daytime high around 35°C in August, and nighttime lows around 24°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 6th (Thu) so you can go by car to Man.
