Getting there & away
Kumasi airport is on the northeastern outskirts of town, about 5km from the centre. Citilink and Antrak have flights between Kumasi and Accra twice a day (US$63).
The huge Kejetia motor park is the city’s main transport hub, from where you can get tro-tros to most regional destinations as well as non-VanefSTC buses to Accra and other points south. In addition, transport for Accra (again), Cape Coast, Takoradi and local destinations such as Lake Bosumtwi leave from Asafo station, east of Asafo Roundabout.
The VanefSTC bus station is on Prempeh Rd. Buses to Accra (ordinary/luxury US$5/7, four hours) leave regularly between 3.30am and 5pm. VanefSTC buses also pass through Cape Coast (US$7, four hours) on their way to Takoradi (US$7, five hours). There are two buses a day to Tamale (US$10, eight hours).
