Accra, Ghana's capital, is located on the Gulf of Guinea. For a direct immersion into the city's atmosphere, start your visit with the two main local markets. Makola Market offers products from neighbouring villages, Kaneshie Market specialises in food and spices. The National Museum owns a large collection of Ghanaian art. Osu castle, historical monument of Accra, is now the government headquarters and cannot be visited. People travel to Accra for its intense night life - its night clubs are big spots for Ghanaian music and dance.
