Introducing Foumban

Foumban has a deep tradition of homegrown arts and the traditional monarchy centred around a sultan, who resides in a palace. The town is plopped architecturally and conceptually between West and North Africa, as if the Sahel and its sharp music, bright robes and Islam – this is the city with most Muslims in the south – were slowly creeping into the eastern corner of West Province.

There's a slow internet cafe east of the market. CPAC bank (south of the market) may change euros if you're lucky, but it's best to change money in Bafoussam.
