Ghana: Greater Accra Region
One of the most intriguing and unique regions is the Greater Accra Region, which is home to our thriving Capital City and serves as Ghana’s entry point. The two big metropolitan regions of Accra and Tema, the country’s principal industrial and commercial centers, are in this small but densely populated region. About 12 kilometers separate Kotoka International Airport from the city’s center.
Since 1877, the City of Accra has served as Ghana’s capital. Its beautiful public structures show the city’s evolution from a Victorian suburb of Victoriasborg to the contemporary metropolis it is today. The city, which stretches down the Atlantic coast, is well-endowed with high-end as well as fantastically affordable hotels, top-notch dining establishments, and nightclubs. There are many fascinating museums and beautiful public landmarks, as well as contemporary business and commercial sectors, bustling markets, and tree-lined residential suburbs, all waiting to be discovered.
The National Museum, with its magnificent collection of artifacts that depict Ghana’s heritage from prehistoric times to the present, the National Theatre, with its distinctive modern architecture, the Centre for National Culture, Independence Square, the Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum, the fishing port at James Town, and Makola Market are just a few of Accra’s highlights.
