"Colourful Benin" Benin by pfsmalo

Benin Travel Guide: 450 reviews and 1,767 photos

I only spent just over 36 hours in Benin, but it gave me the impression that I could have spent much more time (that I didn't have) and it would not have been wasted. As most of "Francophone" Africa the people are in general very friendly, not too much hassle and plenty to see and do.

    You captured the feel of the water market perfectly. I was ready to buy some fruit and vegetables, who can resist such warm open smiles?

    Fine photos in your travelogue and tips, especially the portraits and the people in boats. You seem to have seen a lot in only 36 hours.
