Travel Tips for Accra
You need to have a mini-bag that you stuff with food,
dresses and other items that you need when you are going camping or other adventurous locations outside Accra.But it will be better to bring along luggage as well as bags. You need to bringt along rain coat and any clothing that will be very for the scouching sun and as well as the rain.The rainy season start from July to August.
And the wind blow alot when it get to late november to early december It will be best if you bring along with you any mini medical kit.Stuffed with all the neccessary first aid.
Though we have the best of medical personnel in our country it will still be wise to bring it along to avoid any eventualities. You need to breing along any a set of photographic equipment.But you need not worry about re-charging
your digital batteries.We have alot of places that you can do that though i wouldn't say all the part of Ghana. It very wonderful staying out doors especially in the night.You will experience one of the beautiful night sky of Accra and it's surrounding towns.
Directly north from the Independence Square you will see another important landmark of Ghanaian Independency: the Independence Arch.
This is Ghana's version of the Arc de Triomphe. The arch has "Freedom and Justice, AD 1957" written on top of the arch, being an example for other African nations in those days.
Right underneath the arch you can find the "Eternal Flame of African Liberation" to memorise the importance of freedom in the continent. It was originally lit by the first president of the country: Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.
With the Arch it is the same as the Independence Square: it is forbidden to take picture of it. Why? I don't have any idea...

Accra was my second country in Africa to ever visit. I had been working in Conakry for awhile and we had our annual conference.
I found that Accra was more developed with better cars and streets, but still just as polluted.
One thing I noticed right away was that the people in the market places and taxi drivers were not as accomodating as those in Conakry. I think it is because of the colonization of the French vs. the British. Just the fact of people that I interacted with seemed less likely to care and more willing to make you purchase something before giving advice.
I only stayed in town for the most part and developed food poisioning, so that kind of hampered my fun.
