As Cote d'Ivoire's largest city and economic hub, Abidjan boasts the reputation of West Africa's party capital, while its rich culture remains evident in its numerous film festivals and a booming music scene. The Ebrie Lagoon separates the city districts, spread out across several small peninsulas overlooking the Gulf of Guinea and boasting picturesque beaches and a bustling harbor. The main attractions in Abidjan are its lively bars and clubs--which dot the city districts from the skyscraper-studded business center to the ramshackle suburban areas--along with a variety of trendy cafes and restaurants. If you tire of partying, places to visit in Abidjan include a number of museums, churches, and a vast, lush parkland. Add Abidjan and other destinations to your itinerary using our Ivory Coast trip site, and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.
