AllAboutAccra is just spreading the love of Ghanaian food. Go #EatGhana, so tasty.
AllAboutAccra.com is in full support of this great campaign by the Ghana Tourism Authority. The idea is that when you #VisitGhana that you should #EatGhana, #FeelGhana, #SeeGhana and for me, best of all #WearGhana. And I really do believe that this is the sort of campaign that everyone should get behind, individually and corporately.
Ghana was the first sub-Saharan African country that attained independence. However, its history precedes this novel achievement. Formerly known as the Gold Coast, it is on record that the Portuguese were the first European merchants that arrived in the 15th century. They initially came to trade in gold, diamonds and ivory, however; the business turned…
Second-generation Ghanaian immigrants, who like me share a Ghanaian and British identity, personify the continuing connection the two countries have enjoyed since independence. In Ghana, the idea of welcome is everything. The word for it in Twi (the main language other than English) is akwaaba. (Don’t worry if you don’t remember it: you’ll see it everywhere.) On my most recent visit, the spirit of welcome started the moment my flight touched down in Accra, as the Ghanaian passengers began a rapturous round of applause for the captain – not because the journey had been turbulent, but simply as a way of saying thank you.
However, despite being bias, I know that others will have their own view on what is the best thing about Ghana ? So I thought to myself, why not ask the question on here. In the first place, what is the best thing about Ghana, and maybe, later on I will ask the question what is the best thing about Accra.

Staying safe in Ghana is much the same as in any other part of the world when you travel. Stay safe by staying smart. Be mindful that you are in a different country where things are different. After all, we travel most of the time to see and experience those differences. The following is the…
WearGhana as you SeeGhana, EatGhana, and FeelGhana, not only when you VisitGhana. Ghana Fashion is key to Ghana’s economy and you can support Ghana by wearing Ghana.
In the Sub-Saharan African ranking, Ghana placed fourth behind Mauritius (57), Nigeria (85) and Cameroon (96) in the top five which was completed by neighbours Ivory Coast (99).
The ranking was computed based on an average of three years of surveys taken by Gallup between 2016 and 2018 and include factors such as gross domestic product, social support from friends and family, healthy life expectancy, freedom to make life choices, generosity, perceived corruption and recent emotions of citizens — both happy and sad.
So I lived in Ghana after I had lived in Nigeria, and so when I travelled to live in Ghana I was already vaccinated for the region. The text below is the official advice from the UK Government website on what you should do regarding protecting yourself ahead of any trip to Ghana. And of…
