Ivory Coast or the Côte d’Ivoire, is a West African country that is graced with many striking natural features such as the hills of Man, interesting cities and laid-back beach towns. Since independence from France in 1960, Ivory Coast has experienced a steady level of economic prosperity and peace until the recent political turmoil. Despite this, Ivory Coast travel is still worth the pursuit. The country’s starfish-spangled beaches will enchant visitors who spend a holiday in Ivory Coast, as well as the country’s three lush national parks.
Abidjan is the economic capital and seat of most of the country’s administrative power. These factors make it more like a national capital than the official capital, Yamoussoukro. Abdijan is sometimes referred to as the ‘Paris of West Africa.’ It is a vivacious city with bustling economic activity and full of buildings that still retain French flare. Highlight of the city include, the boldly designed Cathedrale St. Paul, the National Library de Côte d’Ivoire and the National Museum. Just outside the city is the Parc du Banco Rainforest Reserve, a lovely place to spend a balmy afternoon.
Many locals and tourists go to the beachside town of Grand-Bassam when they want to take a break from the big city. Grand-Bassam is full of charming colonial structures, art galleries and the Musée National du Costume. Other seaside stunners are: Assinie, known for its beautiful beaches and great surf; and San Pédro which sits below the verdant Taï National Park and promises the best of both land and sea.
