Introducing Douala

Sticky, icky and frenetic, Douala isn't as bad as some say, but not likely to be your first choice for a honeymoon, either. By any measurement but political power this is Cameroon's main city: its primary air hub, biggest port and leading business centre, and the result is a chaotic hodgepodge. There are few charms, but you can set your finger here to gauge Cameroon's pulse.
