Editorial Description

Ghana is a country located on the West coast of Africa, with a population of 22.4 million. It is bordered by Cote D'Ivore to the west, Burkina Faso to the north, and Togo to the east, and covers a total land area of about 238,540 square kilometers. Former U.N. secretary general Mr. Kofi Annan comes from Ghana. Many who might have heard the name Ghana often mistook it for Guyana, a small country located on the northeastern coast of South America, with a population of about 800,000 and the capital being Georgetown. This book concentrates on Accra, the capital city of Ghana, not the entire country, and it seeks to educate people around the globe about this bustling city, which is fast developing into a modern city. It combines easy reading with facts about Ghana's political and social life, business opportunities, what to see, where to shop, where to stay, and where to eat and socialize with people. It also shows you pictures of various landmarks, neighborhoods, and districts that together make the city of Accra and the history behind them. It also provides you with information about the redenomination of Ghana's currency, the cedi, and the relationship that will exist between the old and the new currency. In short, this colorful book will serve as your tour guide to the central business district of Accra, the Independence Square, Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park, the fashionable district of Osu Oxford Street, Kaneshie Market, places of worship and many more. We urge you to read on and make a decision to visit.
