Makola Market

Lonely Planet review

There is no front door or welcoming sign to the Makola Market. Before you know it, you've been sucked by the human undertow from the usual pavements clogged with vendors hawking food, secondhand clothes and shoes to the market itself. For new arrivals to Africa, it can be an intense experience, but it’s a fun – though perhaps a little masochistic – Ghanaian initiation rite.
