  • Good place for buying artworks, local African clothes, lots of woodwork, basically we need to bargain for buying anything. I usually get 50% less when bargain with the people, I love Ghanaian and their friendly behavior. Don't miss to visit and buy lots of good stuff in a Accra..
  • Good place to shop local art and crafts, dresses, cultural artifacts. Good place to hone your bargaining skills. Have fun with it. The local people are very nice and always helpful. A true Ghanaian/African experience.
