We know — in the age of sustainability, equity, and experiences over things, the word “Bougie” is probably seen as a faux pas in some circles. The good news is, this isn’t that circle and while we like to eat street meat with the best of them, we are also fans of a more luxurious way to explore West Africa’s capital of cool.
Here’s our guide to travel in Accra with your best bougie friend in mind.
Where to Stay
If you see yourself as living your best life in your best light, the first question you ask yourself after you’ve booked that business class ticket to Kotoka International is “where am I staying”.
Our must-haves for the femme jetset: outdoor space (for that Instagram “I woke up like this” post), exceptional service, easy access to our favourite places in the city, and the comfort of the Ritz with some African swag.
