Admittedly, it is easier to get to meet girls at night than during the day. This is because most people who leave their houses at night are looking for a fun time, unlike during the day when most people are going about serious business. The best place to meet girls at night is in nightclubs. While there are other possible locations to meet girls, nightclubs are preferable because they are relatively safe and you get a chance to dance to good music and take drinks. Below are some prominent nightclubs in Accra.

How to Get There and Move Around

By air:

Accra is home to the Kotoka International Airport, which is one of the major airports in West Africa. In recent times, the airport has been getting over 2.5 million passengers per year. Due to the fact that the Kotoka airport is located in Accra which is the country’s capital and most populous city, the airport provides most of the country’s local and international flights.

When it comes to leaving the airport, there are taxis available at the airport. These taxis however might charge high prices, especially if you are a foreigner. Another option is to charter a ride from an online platform. In Accra, ride services include Uber, Taxify, Yenko Taxi, Uru Drive, and Enshika.

Also, for accommodation close to the airport, there are over six quality hotels within a 2 mile radius of the airport.

By bus:

There are buses in Ghana which the general public use to move around. However, bus transport is not very convenient, since the buses are usually tight and overcrowded. Due to prolonged use, most buses used in the public transport business are old and rickety. It is quite uncommon to see foreigners move around town in buses. Also, buses stop only at designated bus stops, so moving around with buses is not very flexible. Due to the tightness and crowdedness in the buses, it is common for pickpockets to steal from passengers during the course of the journey.

Tro-Tro:

Tro-Tro is an alternate form of transport in Accra. Basically, a Tro-Tro is a minivan, a sort of vehicle that can be categorized between a taxi and a bus. Unlike regular buses, the Tro-Tro vehicles operate in a more flexible mode, as they can stop at any point on the road, without needing to wait until they arrive at a designated bus stop. While they are the cheapest form of transport in Accra, they are not very safe, since most Tro-Tro drivers move recklessly and aggressively on the road. Also, like regular buses, the sitting arrangements are quite tight, thus increasing the risk of theft while in the vehicle.

By car:

There are official approved taxis in the city of Accra. These approved taxis have been coloured yellow on the side of the vehicle. When picking up a passenger, a taxi driver might try to overcharge if the passenger is a foreigner. This is where your negotiation skills come to play.

When taking public taxis, there is an option of taxi sharing, with four to six passengers in a taxi, depending on the size of the taxi. It is safe to know that on the average, taxi rides cost 3 GHS ($0.61) for a short ride and between 10 GHS ($2.05) and 15 GHS ($3.07) for longer trips. However, you can also charter a taxi for yourself alone even though this is a lot more expensive.

There are private owned taxis called ‘’’hurry cars’’’. They do not bear the yellow side marking of officially approved taxis and they are usually more expensive than the official taxis. Since these cars are not regulated by the government, they are not the safest option because a driver can do whatever he wants and get away with it.

Another option is online chartered rides like Uber and Taxify. Reservations can be made on the apps of the car service company.

By train:

The major railway transport around Accra is a rail line connecting Accra to another city, Tema. Mostly, train movements within the city are not developed. Generally, railway service in Ghana is recommended as there are other more commonly used modes of transport.

By boat:

Visas:

Ghanaian Visas are obtained at the Ghana Embassy, High Commission or Consulate in your country.

Digital Nomads and Remote Work

As a digital nomad, Accra is an ideal location. On the average, internet connectivity speed is about 7 mb/s. Also, the cost of living for a digital nomad in Accra ranges from $2500 to $3000 per month. This estimate includes accommodation, feeding, and transport.

In Accra, there are a lot of upcoming tech hubs, so if you are looking for a shared workspace, the best two options in Accra are ImpactHub Accra and iSpace Ghana.

Internet and Mobile Operators

There are several telecommunication companies in Accra which provide internet connectivity, phone call and text message services. For phone calls and text messages, the best networks are MTN, Vodafone, Globacom, Airtel and Tigo (Millicom). These companies provide call services to both local and international numbers.

For internet services, MTN is the most notable telecommunication company with 4G internet connectivity. Other options include companies like Busy, Surfline and Blu. However, these three listed companies do not provide the option of using their SIM cards in any device. Rather, their services are limited to specific devices like their WiFi routers (MiFi) and modems.

Gambling and Casinos

Weed and Drugs

Weed and most other hard drugs are illegal in Ghana. There are possible jail sentences if you are caught in possession of most drugs. However, this doesn't stop people from using drugs in Accra. Even if the police arrest someone for possessing drugs, most times, the policemen can be bribed. Weed is very common in Accra and other parts of Ghana. Ghana is one of the biggest consumers of weed in Africa and the world. Most common street name for weed in Accra is "wee".

When it comes to buying and smoking weed, there are a number of places that are relatively safe. For instance, beaches are a good place to smoke weed without interference from the police. Weed vendors also sell weed at the beaches. In some bars, weed is mixed in drinks as a form of cocktail. If you want to buy weed you can walk up to a barman and ask for a "ghetto" (that is the usual name of the houses or location of a vendor). However, the best option is to ask a local to get some for you instead of going yourself. A lot of vendors do not trust foreigners enough to sell illegal drugs to them.

Some bars allow people to smoke weed, but you have to ask first to be safe. These bars usually bribe the police frequently so that they would not come in to make any arrests.

STDs and HIV

Stay Safe

As expected in any city, there are a number of dangers that you can be exposed to. Here are some safety precautions to take. It is best to do most of your sight-seeing during midday. Avoid moving around early in the mornings or late in the evenings, especially if you are alone. It is no news that tourists are common targets of theives and other dark minded individuals. Most places to avoid early in the morning and late in the evening are beaches, lonely roads and parks. Also, it is always better not to move alone. Instead, move with a group of people since criminals do not usually target groups but rather individuals.

Look out for pickpockets. The easiest place for pickpockets to carry out crime is within a crowd. In noisy, crowded environments where a lot of bodies are pressed tightly against each other, it is easy to steal something from someone's pocket or purse. So, whenever you are surrounded by a lot of people, such as when you go to the market or go to watch a show, be on the watch for anyone who seems suspicious or who tries to get too close to you or your belongings. Another option is for you to dip your hand in your pocket constantly.

When moving around a big city like Accra, it is common to see dramatic scenes unfold in public. These could include fights. In such a case, it is best to walk away from the scene since such events can easily get out of hand. Any form of public commotion should be avoided. Also, pickpockets take advantage of such commotions since most people would be focused on watching whatever might be happening, and might not pay proper attention to their belongings.

Another source of danger is people who offer helping hands. When arriving or leaving the airport, you might find locals who are not airport porters offering to help you carry your luggage. You should be careful as some of these locals might mess with your luggage. Even if they do not tamper with your possessions, they usually ask for money after helping you carry your stuff. The best option is for you to get your own luggage by yourself. The same thing goes when you are buying things at the market or at a store.

Do not move around with excess cash or flashy jewelry. A lot of business organizations in Accra accept card payments, so you do not need a very large amount of cash in hand. Wearing flashy jewelry makes you a target for criminals. If you must wear jewelry, keep it at a minimum.

The safest means of transportation are the online charter taxis like Uber and Taxify. Avoid boarding regular buses and the Tro-Tro. Drivers of the privately owned hurry cars are not to be trusted since they are private drivers and not affiliated to the government.

Some times, belongings have gone missing from hotel rooms when the room guests go out. The best way to avoid this is to lodge in a reputable hotel. Do not lodge in a low standard hotel in order to save money. Your personal safety should be a priority.

When you arrive in the country, it is advisable to register with your country's Embassy or Consulate in Accra. This ensures that people at the Embassy are aware of your presence in case an emergency situation should occur.
