"Kumasi, centre of the Ashanti's" Top 5 Page for this destination Kumasi by Pieter11

Kumasi Travel Guide: 91 reviews and 358 photos

Kumasi, Ghana's second largest city, is also the capital of the Ashanti Region: the remains of the once powerful Kingdom that used to rule over big parts of Ghana, Burkina Faso, Mali, Togo and Benin.

Today the city is the most hectic one in the country, with a lot of traffic, over one million inhabitants, and the biggest market in Africa: the colourful Kejetia Market.

Although the city is big, choatic and hectic, it is a very nice place to be. Kumasi is an exciting place that lives 24 hours a day. The centre is full of hills with green lawns and banana trees, old buildings and small eating- and drinkingspots everywhere. It doesn't have a lot of major attraction you have to see, but still going there is a great experience!

    Vic Baboo's a place where I ate a lot of hamburgers. But I never liked Kumasi a lot and I still don't know why....
    Did you visit Beyin when you were in Ghana?

    Always interesting to see the differences between the cities and the towns you have visited. The british buildings stand out like a sore thumb :). And the trains run right through the market?
