Ghana Holidays,  Ghana Holiday Packages Overview

Ghana is said to be the friendliest destination in Africa with welcoming and helpful locals. The laidback attitude of the locals makes it a delight to visit Ghana. While most people remember Ghana for its history of slave trade, the country has had a rich, long history that dates back even further.

Throughout the northern region, remnants of past civilizations can be found, at the Nelrigu Defence Wall dating back to the 16th century and the Larabanga Mosque dating back to the 15th century. The slave trade also left behind its mark on the country. Swedish, Portuguese, German, Danish, Dutch and British forts can be found dotted throughout the coast of the country. The most impressive among these are the UNESCO listed forts at Elmina and Cape Coast.

The city of Accra offers much to do and see with plenty of historic sites like the WB Dubois Centre, Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum and the Independence Square. There are excellent shopping opportunities and cultural treats that can be found in the city. Kumasi too offers historic sites like the Okomfo Anokye Sword, Asantehene's Palace and the Manhiya Palace.

Ghana is blessed geographically even though none of its natural attractions are as iconic as Kilimanjaro or the Victoria Falls. The extensive coastline of the country is home to beautiful beaches such as those at Dixcove and Busua, impressive European forts like the Cape Coast Castle as well as reminders of Ghana's slave trade history. There are vibrant fishing villages, local arts and crafts and much more to do.

Ghana Holidays - Currency of Ghana

 

The official currency is the cedi (GHC), which is divided into 100 pesewas. Foreign currency can be exchanged at any forex bureaux as well as at some commercial banks; banks and foreign exchange facilities are available at the airport and in all major towns. It is advisable to keep an currency exchange receipts in order to be able to re-exchange when departing. Banking hours are usually from 8.30am to 3pm Monday to Friday, and most large commercial banks have ATMs located outside, although only limited amounts of cedis can be drawn at a time. Travellers cheques are accepted at banks and forex bureaux in the capital Accra, but the rate of exchange may be lower than for cash transactions. The most widely accepted credit cards are American Express, Diners and Visa, and cards can be used for payment at major hotels and shops, although this can be risky as credit card fraud is very common. The best currencies to bring are US dollars, British pounds or Euros as other currencies exchange at poor rates.
