Yamoussoukro

 
Yamoussoukro Yamoussoukro is one of the most bizarre modern cities on the planet. The capital of Cote d'Ivoire is a sprawling grid of paved streets, but few buildings line them. The former president Felix Houphouet-Boigny dreamt of creating a bustling capital, but his vision for “Yam” never came to fruition. Although the capital's reality is different from the leader's hopes, it is still worth a visit to explore its quiet streets. Visitors should use caution though, as recent conflicts have erupted throughout the capital and country.Grande Mosque Yamoussoukro:A tall perimeter wall surrounds the Fondation Houphouet-Boigny, the palace where the former leader is now buried. Sacred crocodiles protect the lake on the southern side,...
 

Abidjan

 
Abidjan Abidjan is the very European capital of Ivory Coast. As the ex pats says: It is such a nice place because its so conveniently close to Africa. This remark is very true for the wealthy parts of town: Le Plateau, Cocody and les Duex Plateaux, here you will almost feel in Europe. Most of the 2.5 million inhabitants live in other quarters however such as Treichville, Morcory or Adjame. These are very lively places, very busy and very much African. These two faces make Abidjan a very interesting destination. Abidjan is large, clean and fairly modern. The town offers a wide variety of things to do. There are a few sights worth checking out, the most important one being the Hotel Ivoire. The area is good for day trips....
 

Bondoukou

Grand Bassam

 
Grand Bassam From 1893 to 1899 Grand Bassam was the capital of the French colonial power in Cote d'Ivoire. They left in a hurry because of a yellow fevere epidemy and moved to Bingerville. The old administrative town on an island in the lagoon is one of the best daytrips to make from Abidjan only 40 km to the West. The Governor's House, the Mairie are in good shape. The old Palais de Justice, the old Post Office and the custom houses are in a bad state. Besides the old colonial buildings the main attraction is the superb beach. For even better beaches continue some more 40 km to Assini where you find the best beaches of the country....
 

Man

 
Man Man itself is not a very beautiful town in Ivory Coast, but the lush green hills around it make it a great place to travel to. The main attractions are outside of town, but in town a visit to the market is worth your while. It's a very colorful and lively place and you can find some good buys, especially carvings and fabrics. Around Man the best places to visit are the Cascade, a waterfall in a bamboo forest 5 km west of town, Mount Tonkoui the second highest peak just 20 km on the same road from where you can see as far as Liberia on a clear day, the Dentde Man a steep tooth-shaped mountain 14 km north-east of town with great hiking opportunities, as well as a number of local villages such as Biankouma, Goues...
