"Aného, the border town" Aneho by georeiser

Aneho Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 27 photos

Aneho is the border town against Benin in the maritime region of the southeastern Togo. The town is also known under the name "Little Popo", and was earlier a Portuguese slave market. It became the first German capital of Togo in the 1880's before the capital was transferred to Lomé in 1897. The town's main industries are farming and fishing.
The travellers from Togo to Benin disembark on the main bus station in Aheho before they walk across the border.

It might be confusing to understand how Aneho can be the border town to Benin when it is "far away" to the border. But if you look closer to the map you will see a very narrow strip of land on the Benin side, called "Grand Popo". Aneho, which was named "Little Popo" is on the Togo side.
