Ghana in detail


Beautiful handicrafts are available throughout Ghana. Particularly noteworthy are specialist kente villages in the Ashanti and eastern regions, traditional basketware in the north and the women's cooperative Global Mamas in Cape Coast and Accra. For high-end boutiques or international brands, there's Oxford St in Accra, or one of the city's malls. To get a truly local shopping experience try the bewildering sprawl of Kumasi's Kejetia Market or Accra's Makola Market.
