Ghana is proof that amazing things come in small packages.
Considered to be one of Africa’s true success stories, this country is enjoying a stable democracy and incredible development.
The combination creates a joyful energy across the country.
With Ghana you get beautiful hinterland, sunny beaches, rich culture, lively cities, welcoming locals, tons of wildlife, and easy access to all parts of the country.
There’s a big difference between northern and southern Ghana – including different religion, geography, and culture.
But you’ll still feel like the country is one harmonious unit. If you’ve never been to Africa, Ghana is known as ‘Africa for beginners,’ making it a perfect destination for those who want to get their feet wet.
2. Artists Alliance Gallery
This gallery will blow you away with its contemporary and fine art collections.
Created by respected Ghanaian artist, Ablade Glover, the three story gallery is a treasure chest of Kente clothe, furniture, Asafo flags, masks, and unique metal sculptures.
You can see almost every prominent Ghanaian artist represented and most of the pieces are for sale.
3. Labadi Beach
Arguably Accra’s most popular beach, Labadi is the perfect city beach.
Great food and cocktails are available, as well as local entertainment and people watching.
The beach itself is maintained by the surrounding hotels so be forewarned that there is a small entrance fee for those not staying there.
If you happen to be there on the weekend you’ll for sure catch some native drumming, local reggae bands, and plenty of spots for dancing to hiplife – a unique music style that blends hip hop with Ghanaian culture.
