    Explore the Colonial buildings

    by flynboxes Written Feb 22, 2010

    As the former capital of the French Colony in CI this place has a few gems to see if you are into colonial architecture. Some buildings have been restored while you need to use your imagination with others...I thought they were kinda neat. If mix it in with some shopping you can spend a lazy afternoon walking around shopping and taking snaps (photos) of the area

    Horse riding on the beach

    by flynboxes Written Feb 22, 2010

    Along Blvd Treich Laplene there is a place to hire a horse and go for a escorted ride around town or on the beach. Try it during the week and you might be able to get the price down a bit as at $30-40 for 30 min to an hour it was a bit pricey for us and we passed

    by flynboxes Written Feb 22, 2010

    Nick Amon is a local Ivoirian artist. He is a bit contemporary but his shop is work a look and part of the profits do to teach little kids how to paint so it helps the locals if you choose to make a purchase.

    Old colonial French building

    by Wafro Written Jun 11, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Here you find a map of Grand Bassam, as you can see, the town is cut in two by the Lagoon.
    The upper part is called "Nouveau Bassam" and the lower part on the seaside is called "Ancien Bassam".
    In this part of town, is it where you can find the old colonial French buildings.
    Most of them are run down, but some of them are renovated and open for the public.
