Bangui
 
Bangui

Bangui is the capital of the Central African Republic. It is located in the southwestern part of the country. The city is situated on the western bank of the Oubangi River, the nation's main trade artery, across from the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Bangui developed around a military post established by the French in 1889-90. It was the administrative center for the French territory of Ubangi-Chari and continued as the national capital when the country achieved independence as the Central African Republic in 1960.

Bangui is the republic's chief port and its leading administrative, economic, and educational center. It has the only university of the country.

With its broad avenues, the beautiful hills and the river, Bangui certainly has some charm. Around the central market and the avenue Boganda there are always things going on. The centre of town is the place the la republic, where you find the Roman style triumphal arch of former emperor Bokassa.

For nightlife head out 5 kilometer on Avenue Boganda until it intersects with Avenue Koudougou. You are in 'km 5' as the locals call it: cheap restaurants, accommodation and nightclubs. The area may be somewhat unsafe, especially at night.
