SHOPPING

There are a variety of shops and venders in town, who stock all kinds of products. At every major ‘traffic’ junction, you will find a group of young people on the streets with all manner of wares from dog chains to cold drinks.
For gifts and Souvenirs, the best place to start is the craft market at the Centre of National Culture on 28th February Road and along the Tetteh Quashie-Motorway roundabout.

At the makola market in the Central Business district in Accra, it is quite a sight, just observing the market women who shout at the top of their voices to attract attention. Here, you can find anything from cotton fabric to foodstuffs and beauty accessories. Value Added Tax, leived on goods, is inclusive of the price so go on, put on your bargaining skills, but also listen to your instincts and don’t hastle too hard, else you may miss a good deal!

However if you are looking for your regular supermarkets, here are some of the places to go for your daily shopping. Koal in Osu, Dufry for your duty free shopping
