5 Reasons Why You Should Visit Ibadan In 2017 by deturla: 4:53pm On Jun 11, 2017
Ibadan, popularly referred to as the city of brown roofs, embodies an ample mix of history and modern adventure that presents both indigenes and foreigners a huge wealth of experience. Aside from its peaceful ambiance and serene nature, Ibadan is a famous and great city in Nigeria. It is home to many commercial establishments and business organizations and the city is continuously expanding. Jumia shared below 5 reasons why you should visit Ibadan in 2017:

1 Ibadan is the third cheapest city to live in Nigeria

According to a recent study carried out in Nigeria, it was discovered that Ibadan is the third cheapest city to live in after Ikot Ekpene and Aba. The standard of living in Ibadan is generally low and as such, people can live conveniently on a salary of N50,000. Unlike in Lagos State where people spend a lot of money commuting to work daily, the cost of transportation in Ibadan is unbelievably affordable. Commuters pay as low as N50 to get to a far destination, a situation which is not possible in Lagos and many other states.

2 Ibadan is home to very affordable luxury hotels in Nigeria

The city of Ibadan has a plethora of affordable hotels ranging from luxury five star hotels to regular hotels. The room rates of hotels in Ibadan are unbelievably affordable when compared to hotels in Lagos. For instance, Premier Hotel, a five star hotel in Ibadan has room rates starting from less than NGN 20,000 where as a similar five star hotel in Lagos have room rates starting from NGN 50,000 and above.

3 Ibadan has a place in the history of Africa

Historically, the city of Ibadan is a place to be reckoned with. It is notable for being the largest city in West Africa. Asides its large land mass, it also houses the first sky scrapper in the whole of Africa. Cocoa House, a building towering above a height of 100metres is the first tall urban building in the African continent. Formerly referred to as “Ile Awon Agbe” (meaning house of farmers), the modest 24 storey high-rise building is a major landmark in Ibadan. Furthermore, during the middle of the eighteenth century, Ibadan rose to prominence as the presiding military power house in southwest Nigeria. The city of Ibadan is also the site of one of the first universities in sub-Saharan Africa. The University of Ibadan is the first university in Nigeria as well.

4 The people of Ibadan are very hospitable

The people of Ibadan are one of the most hospitable people in Nigeria. They are usually warm and cordial to people and they receive guests with open hands. As such, if you are looking for a new place to go on tourism in Nigeria, you will never go wrong with Ibadan. To a large extent, the Ibadan spirit of hospitality has everyone stuck there. People live harmoniously with each other with quarrels hardly ever arising.

5 Ibadan is home to the tastiest indigenous meals in Southwestern Nigeria

The Ibadan people are notable for being the best at preparing “amala and ewedu”, one of the most popular Yoruba meal. Amala and Ewedu is a very important meal in southwest Nigeria. In fact, it is often described as one of the tourist attractions found in the city of Ibadan. It is a super spicy delicacy that is served in all traditional functions in the city. One of the major benefits of this meal is its very healthy nature. Nutritionists assert that the combination of Amala and Ewedu contains vitamins, minerals and fiber that will protect the body from degenerative terminal diseases. In summary, Amala and Ewedu is a “super” meal. Words are not enough to describe how amazing this meal taste. I will suggest you book the next flight or board the next bus and head to the city of Ibadan to have a feel of this super meal yourself.

There are very few 5 star hotels in Nigeria, and premier ain't one of the few.

Lol. You mean the same Ibadan that robbers plunged into my brother's apartment and carted away with laptops and vital documents. Police came and offered him advice on how to be a good boy; that since he's working he can get another one. Worse off all, they requested for transportation fare back to their station.
