Interesting Places To Visit In Lagos This Xmas Season by mrsage(m): 11:38pm On Dec 01, 2014
Lagos is a very interesting city. It is full of fun and excitement.
This is December and we all need to relax and take a break. Lots of businesses will go on break and there will be a need tl visit some fun places.
I have been in Lagos virtually all my life and trust me i have been round town.
I will suggest a few nive places for you. The good thing about Lagos is there is an ideal spot for every body irrespecitive of your budget.

1. Tarkwa Bay. This is an island in Lagos accessible by boat. Boats of various sizes are available in Cms and tarzan jetty to take you on a ride to takwa bay. A typical ride from cms to takwa bay takes about 20minutes. It is nice and fun. It is a serene environment sparsely populated with friendly residents some of whom are fishermen.
It is an ideal get away spot within Lagos.

I want to be in Lagos for 3 weeks. do you know where I can get hotel accommodation of around 1500 per night. tanx
Re: Interesting Places To Visit In Lagos This Xmas Season by mrsage(m): 7:59am On Dec 02, 2014
Generally 1,500 a night is really low. But let me ask a few questions?
What part of Lagos do you want to visit?
The environment may not really be conducive. Hope you dont mind?

Your response may determine what next. But if you can increase your budget it will be better.
Kindly respond

5. BADAGRY
The ancient town of Badagry was founded around l425 A.D. The origin of Badagry could be traced back to the period when people lived along the Coast of Gberefu and this area later gave birth to the town of Badagry. Badagry – the 2nd largest commercial town in Lagos State – is located in the western tip of Lagos city and about an hour drive from Lagos main land.

There are buildings, sites and memories of this iniquitous period so that tourists can unearth the dark impact of this era. Interesting places that can leave an unforgettable memory are:
Palace of the Akran of Badagry and its mini ethnographic museum
the early missionaries cemetery
the District Officer’s Office and Residence
the First Storey Building in Nigeria constructed by the Anglican missionaries
relics of slave chains in the mini museum of slave trade
cannons of war
the Vlekte slave Market, and the Slave Port established for the shipment of slaves before the l6th century.

Others are: the site of the famous Agia tree under which Christianity was first preached in Nigeria. Visitors will also do well to trek on the Gberefu Beach to the ‘Point of No Return’. African-Americans eager to identify with their African roots will find a great deal to connect with in Badagry. Also worth visiting are Suntan Beach, Hermitage Resort, Whispering Palms Beach Resort, Halem Seaside Resort etc.
