Sticky and frenetic, Douala isn't as bad as some say, but it's not likely to be your first choice for a honeymoon, either. By any measurement but political power this is Cameroon's main city. It's the primary air hub and a leading business centre with a major port, and the result is a chaotic hodgepodge. There is some charm in the street life and battered Independence architecture, though, and here you can set your finger on Cameroon's pulse.
