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, Maison Ganamet, &more). Next up on the itinerary: visit The Plateau, get your game on at Dream Zone Virtual Reality, explore the striking landscape of Banco National Park, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Paul's Cathedral.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Abidjan fast, fun, and easy.

Doha, Qatar to Abidjan is an approximately 18-hour flight. You'll gain 3 hours traveling from Doha to Abidjan due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Doha in June, you will find days in Abidjan are much colder (°C), and nights are a bit cooler (°C). Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Wed) to allow enough time to drive to Yamoussoukro.
