Accra the capital of Ghana is truly the best place to book your ticket to before it becomes too commercial and expensive.

Ghana is crowded and full of tourists

Despite the city's crowdedness, Ghana is the best place to book your ticket to in the summer. The city is not that expensive as compared to other European countries in the summer. I’ve booked my ticket from France through Air France. The flight was not that long and the inflight entertainment was great.

Upon arrival, I visited a local restaurant to have lunch and the restaurant was clean and the staff was great. It only cost five Ghana Shidie, which is about two and a half euros for a whole meal including a Coke. It was such a pleasant experience to encounter a cheap meal upon arrival. Moreover, there are many touristic places to book tickets to in Ghana like the Volta River, the Sajuna Beach Club, and much more on the road to Akosombo.

Inexpensive ticket to Ghana

I was planning a trip this year to Europe, but one of my coworkers advised me to visit Africa this time. I booked my flight through Air France at a fair price and the flight was short and the overall service was amazing. I stayed at the Ritz and the staff was very professional and they promptly confirmed my stay.

I booked this trip from the 6th of September until the 21st of the September. The weather was great, possibly the best weather that I have encountered so far in my whole life. Also, there are many activities and festivals to which to purchase tickets. A ticket to Ghana is the best ever!
