On a tour of Accra, you can experience the vivacious and dynamic atmosphere of Ghana's sprawling capital city, a commercial and tourist hub of the region.

Step out of Accra with an excursion to West Hills Mall in Weija--about 40 minutes away. There's still lots to do: stop by Center for National Culture, enjoy the sea views from James Town Lighthouse, catch all the local highlights with BlasTours - Day Tours, and take in the exciting artwork at The Loom.
