What’s great is that you can find these fabrics at the upmarket Woodin Shop on Oxford Street for afropolitan flair, or feel the vibrancy of the local Makola Market. The market is bustling with friendly locals, who make you feel welcome; a selection of food stalls; and an endless frenzy of rich fabric, including indigenous Ghanaian kente cloth, which is irresistible. What’s really cool is that the market is dominated by women traders.
In 2016, I was fortunate to travel again to Accra with the Kaya FM Breakfast Show with Bob and Kuli to promote ongoing travel from Accra, focusing on a few urban travel hubs, ranging from the Kakum National Park to the glorious Labadi Beach Hotel for a sea view coupled with fine dining. This trip was also filled with a few night spots, such as the Coco Lounge (very chic, good food,
a place to be seen) and live music at the Holiday Inn.
