Entertainment And Dining Out

There are many interesting things to see and do within the Ivory Coast, including the area surrounding the town of Man. Situated in the west of the country; this heavily forested region provides waterfalls and options for hiking or climbing to the peak of Mount Tonkoui. The town of Yamoussoukro is located 230 km (143 miles) north of Abidjan. This vibrant town offers a market, the Palace and Plantations of the President, and a Mosque. The stained glass covered Cathédrale Notre-Dame-de-la-Paix was paid for and commissioned by Félix Houphouët-Boigny, who was Côte d’Ivoire’s president for 33 years. This cathedral is slightly smaller than St Peter’s in Rome, however the total area of stained glass is more than you will find in all the cathedrals in France. There are a number of African restaurants throughout the country that cater to tourists. One of the best areas to try the spicy African dishes is in the Treichville district of Abidjan.
