On a stopover or simply passing, Abidjan can let you discover the time of a weekend. A day in the hustle and bustle of the capital and a day in its quiet spots will give you a good overview of the city.
Day 1: Abidjan, the restless one
Day 2: The Plateau and the Banco
Start by immersing yourself in the frenetic excitement of the city with a visit to the Plateau, a bustling business district and the historic heart of Abidjan. In the afternoon, we head for the markets: the CAVA (Centre artisanal de la ville d'Abidjan), the Cocody market or the large Belleville market in Treichville. In the evening, a short walk to Ambroise or rue des Mille-Maquis is a must
Direction the Plateau, with a breakfast to start in the hushed lounges of the Pullman, which offer a breathtaking view of the lagoon boulevard and Cocody Bay. Or, a coffee on the terrace of Hôtel Ivoire, from where you will have a beautiful view of the skyline of the Plateau. Then, on the way to the Banco - and provided you are accompanied, you can stop at Adjamé's black market, before going to soak up the calm in this beautiful national park. For a trendy evening in the direction of the city's lounge bars and gourmet restaurants.
