The capital of Ghana, Accra, is a pleasant city (pop. 1 100 000) on the southern coast.
Start your sightseeing at the Perpetual Flame at the Cenotaph in Revolution Square then go on to the National Museum (one of the best collections in West Africaâ€”allow at least two hours). Next to the museum is a good craft market which sells paintings, prints and postcards. The citys main sites are the Makola Market (the city's central market), Liberation Square (memorial to three Ghanaians who were shot during colonial times), the tropical gardens, the Art Centre (for shopping and cultural events), the grave of Kwame Nkrumah (the first Ghanaian president) and that of W. E. B. Du Bois (the American-born civil rights leader who spent his last years in Accra).
Accra also has some beautiful beaches, some more touristy than others. Labadi and Kokrobite will ask for an entrance fee, expect a busy crowd on Saturday and especially Sunday. You'll probably be entertained by musicians and acrobats, they will usually ask for a small token for the entertainment. It's up to you.. You will also find a lot of peddlers selling all sorts of things.
Dutch Hotel is easily accessable from the capital Accra and the international airport. Within 20 min (by car) you are at the hotel.
