MANHYIA PALACE AND KEJETIA MARKET
After a great breakfast, we’ll proceed to Manhyia Palace Museum. With peacocks and peahens beautifying the compound, we’ll proceed to see ancient Ashanti artifacts, sculptures, textiles, gold weights, and more during the museum tour. The site guide will educate us on stories of wars, mystery, royal history, leadership among others as the tour progresses.
After this rich history of the Ashanti Kingdom, we’ll proceed to West Africa’s biggest space for buying and selling which is none other than the open-air Kejetia Central Market. Consisting of over 50,000 packed stalls and thousands of smaller shed or umbrella outlets, the business here forms a large part of the informal economy. Traders sell everything from sneakers, glass beads, kente clothing, hardware, meat, fish, vegetables, computers, back-alley cheap batiks, and secondhand fabrics. Others set up shops to meet patrons’ tailoring, shoe-making among others. A close glance into the lives of typical Ghanaians, this market offers every moment of adventure and hospitality at its finest.
Having enjoyed every bit of the Garden City experience, we’ll drive back to Accra.
