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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Abidjan: Grand Bassam (Pont De La Victoire, Musee National des Costumes, & more). There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at St. Paul's Cathedral, browse the range of quality goods at PlaYce-Marcory, explore the striking landscape of Banco National Park, and stop by CAVA - Centre Artisanal de la Ville.

Start off your visit on the 25th (Wed): tour the pleasant surroundings at Mount Nimba Strict Nature Reserve, then get a sense of history and politics at Palais Presidentiel, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Basilica of Our Lady of Peace, and finally contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Grande Mosquee. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: tour the pleasant surroundings at Abokouamekro Game Reserve.
