5.0 out of 5 stars As Essential as Anti-malarials!, 22 July 2008
This review is from: Ghana (Bradt Travel Guides) (Paperback)
Almost essential during any trip to Ghana, this guide really makes it easy to locate the wealth of culture and hospitality in Ghana.

Without a guide Ghana can oft times seem at best daunting and at worst dull. This is far from the truth however, the country containing almost all of what Africa has to offer - Rainforests, Christian & Muslim Cultures, Safaris, Beautiful lakes and beaches and even *cough* the corrupting influences of the west are detailed in extraordinary depth within this guide.

As a country not exactly buzzing with tourism not only is the guide essential in uncovering customs and tradition - but also in making sure that three hour ride on a tro-tro (rickety old van) results in a glorious beach or magnificent walk through a rainforest canopy... rather than some floating poo-poo washing up on the shores of a smoggy bustling town (and yes, unfortunately Ghana does have these as much abundance as any other developing country).

As a student volunteer in Ghana I found this book a lifesaver, and I would assume it would be just as suitable for anyone taking on the role of tourist as well (as I travelled extensively as well during my stay).
If you're going to Ghana, purchase this book. If you're thinking of visiting Africa, I wholeheartedly recommend Ghana... so purchase this book!

NOTE: As far as I'm aware however, this is the only Ghanaian travel guide... so it seems a little unsurprising they can laud it as "the best selling"...
