Anyone who knows me knows that wakabout is in my blood and you can always rely on me to share the places I visit that I think you should visit too.
In this post, I’ll be sharing some awesome and highly recommended places to visit and interesting things to do to make the most of your time/ stay in Ghana awesome. Especially if like me, you had 2.5 days to see and do it all.
- Visit a beach.I went to Vienna beach in Labadi with my people and we spent about 2 hours before we had to go drop-off one of us at the airport. You can take a dip in the ocean or ride one of the horses or patronize the local artist or eat some food, whatever you want. But remember to have fun!
- Explore night life with Smirnoff, tilapia and banku.
We got to sit out in one of those joints and order beautifully prepared tilapia with banku even though I couldn’t take more than a bite of this but the tilapia, I loved!
- Dine in an aircraft. Yes, I meant what I said. The restaurant was once an operational craft till it shut down for business. Unfortunately, when we arrived, it wasn’t open for the day. I later found out that they don’t operate like regular restaurants, they have their own schedule.You can be sure that on my next trip, I’ll ensure I dine here.
- Aburi Botanical Garden.
This sorts of reminds me about the botanical garden in Calabar, Cross River State, the only difference is that it’s more maintained than the one in Calabar.
Also, feel free to have some suya from the suya vendors and wash that down with some fresh juice or in my case ice cream.
- Go learn some history at Cape Coast Castle.
I won’t say anything on this as this is a post of it’s own.
- Face your fears at the Kakum National park.We drove all the way here just to be told on arrival that it was closed for the day (talk about major disappointment) so we ended up buying a beautiful bunch of bananas from a trader there at Ghc 5 to make up for the disappointment.
- Visit Hans cottage and pet a croc.
Hans cottage is a beautiful place to visit as it has the aesthetically pleasing environment and the water lilies and potted plants just added to it. It also has this ‘vibe’ I can’t fully explain but love to it.
The down side is there are mosquitoes. So, if you’re heading there, you should go with insecticide or something. No jokes!
Also, the place doubles as a croc viewing/ petting place, so if you’re into playing house with animals meant to viewed from far, please by all means, go ahead. I stayed on the other side of the fence because, I only have one life to live.
- Try dining the Ghanaian way.
On many occasions, I had the opportunity to try out Ghanaian food and although it was not what I was used to, its something I myself trying again in the near future.I love trying out new food and believe me when I say it’s something you should definitely try doing.
All in all, Ghana life in 2.5 days went pretty well thanks to these few things and places and I look forward to having another go but hopefully this time, it’ll be a week of wakabout.
Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed this post. Please leave a comment, let me know what you think and if you’d be brave enough to try these!
