Luanda

3.3
After decades of conflict, Luanda experienced a massive economic boom at the beginning of the 21st century, making it one of the most developed cities in Africa and a magnet for tourists. On your trip to Luanda, immerse yourself in the city's financial and cultural renaissance and see how the old Portuguese colonial architecture blends in with the modern skyscrapers and structures. A Luanda itinerary can include mausoleums; museums of slavery, anthropology, and independence; historic forts and monuments; and ancient churches built by the colonists. Remember to keep away from the slums and stay within the touristic zones, as crime and corruption remain a problem in this expensive, bustling city. Luanda is in Luanda Province. Our Angola trip website allows you to schedule your trip to Luanda, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.

Where to stay in Luanda

Luanda holds the title as one of the most expensive cities in the world, so even if you search for budget-friendly accommodations, bear in mind that it will cost a fair amount. Most recommend the neighborhood of Maculusso for three-, four-, and five-star hotels, but you can also see what Murtala Mohammed Avenue near Luanda Bay has to offer. All lodgings in the center make excellent starting points for exploring the rest of Luanda--just remember to confine your sightseeing to the city's safer colonial part.
