Monrovia Things to Do

  • What to see in this devastated land

    Attractions in Monrovia include the Liberian National Museum, the now ruined Masonic Temple, the Waterside Market, (currently closed) cultural centre on Providence Island and several beaches. It is also home to a zoo. The city also houses one of the biggest sports stadiums in Africa, with seats for 40,000.The pic. is of Monrovia stadium. This is...

  • National Hall

    This is where the presidents of Liberia are sworn in and it also houses several copies of their Declaration of Independence. Long time president William Tubman is buried here as well.

  • Firestone Rubber Plantation

    At one time this was the largest rubber plantation in the world. We drove around it while waiting for our flight. The trees are cut and the buckets catch the sap, which is then processed.

    The Barracuda Bar at the Mamba Point Hotel: Sushi in a modern setting

    by robgonzales Written Apr 15, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of two sushi restaurants in Monrovia. The Barracuda Bar is located in modern-looking surroundings on the second floor of the Mamba Point hotel. Sushi is generally off a good quality. Other items on the menu include: tempura, noodle dishes and mussels. Draft beer is also on tap.

    Favorite Dish: The sushi, which is generally fresh and made by imported Japanese chefs. It's pricey, but a welcome addition to Monrovia's restaurant diversity.

Monrovia Transportation

  • Monrovia Taxis

    Taxis are available but are costly. They are the only comfortable and safe mode of transportation. Donot board local city bus as you may be thrown out of the bus due to over crowding or be prepared to lose your wallet, purses and other appareils.

  • Roberts International Airport

    Planes from France(Air France), Nigeria(Virgin Nigeria) have flights once and twice a week respectively.

  • Air travel Liberian style

    Monrovia's airport was unlike any I've been to. Everything is hot and crowded and disorganized and tedious. Give yourself lots of time and be very patient if you find yourself here.

    No traffic rules

    There are no traffic rules followed in Monrovia. They drive where ever they want, on any side of the road divider, at high speed. So do take care while crossing. There are traffic signals in the city, but either they are out of order or are not followed.

    The people

    Favorite thing: The people of Monrovia are very warm and welcoming. Everybody talks to you. You can't help but hope the worst is behind them and they will have a bright and peaceful future.

    Fondest memory: Trying to learn the Liberian handshake--never did but I know it ends with both people snapping their fingers.
