Abidjan Travel Guide: 111 reviews and 263 photos

During our West African trip in 1991 we spent some days in Abidjan to arrange our visa.

Abidjan is a city of contrasts with low and high, traditional and modern buildings.

We stayed at a campsite east of the citycentre along the oceanroad.

    I had to visit this page to see where most of the email scams arise. :) Through your interesting page, I found quite a different place to what I'd expected - and a great campsite!

    You are right, what a contrast between the most modern buildings in Le Plateau and the small traditional houses. I did not expect such a big contrast ! Abidjan is now one of those places lost for visitors, at least for some time!

    Interesting divide between the old colonial Grand Bassam and Abidjan ... fascinating pages. Lovely shot of the cathedral windows.

    Interesting architecture, both modern and old. But the best architecture is that tent with oceanview ---> I would love to be inside there :-)

    Ali, a very interesting page with the contrast between the old colonial buildings in Grand Bassam and the amazing architectural wonders of Abidjan! Your Coppa Cabana campsite looks very inviting to me!!
