I was frequently in Ghana and i have visited all part of the country except Kumasi,Brong Afon ..Takoradi..Simply because the highway leading to this directions aren't that well maintained...Yeah Accra is expensive because of its attractions and Capital of Ghana but you can still have a life around the suburb town and do your stuff in Accra....Check accommodation in places like Kasua,New Town,Ashimota,Techie Nungua..However Ghanian landlord are always careful when it comes to renting out apartments to Nigerians so its always easier for you to have some local around...

If you wanna connect with Nigerians easily..just enjoy the night life at circle,New Town or Nima (Accra Ghetto) but be careful with them..

As a foreigner you might find it difficult getting a job out there,so try to be an entrepreneur...Ghana itself is full of fun..Taxis are cheap..with 5 Ghana Cedis you can get a ride.They have nice affordable resort,mountains and waterfalls.Transportation in Ghana is actually cheap and affordable,Food is also affordable but accommodation should be your major concern and how u gonna make money.I think the landlords also always insist on 3 years advance payment.The most popular beach is Labadi beach,its like 7 Minutes drive from the city centre called CIRCLE...Other beaches are Kokrobite,Winneba beach and more...


One Thing i like about Ghanians is that they are peaceful people,They have quality of living and satisfaction..Nigerians work too hard for just show off!!! I really enjoyed my days out there can wait to visit Ghana again when i come home next year.

Good luck in your sojourn

You are welcome,Kumasi is relatively cheap and also can be compared to Ibadan.

Accra should be your target if you want to make money because the purchasing power there is higher than in Kumasi...

You got shopping centres in OSU,ACCRA,Tema (Sea Port)....Can be compare with Apapa
The most popular Mall in Accra is located on the highway leading to Aflao...Its called Tetteh Quarshie Accra Mall (Shoprite is also there )
A lot of SME'S in Circle (Accra) and its environs

I would advise you to go there first for a visit and explore your options too...Try to find more info on google from the little information given to you.

Akwaaba To Ghana,greet Them If Go.Accomodation Is Cheap In Kumasi Than Accra metropolis,foods are cheap in both city also tfare.what are going to do in Ghana?Don't Go There And Start Engaging Yourself In Fraud,because As A Nigerian you are a suspect at firstsight by the local.otherwise,they know the type of job or business you are do physically.dont carry too many gadgets like laptop,ipad n flashing mobile phone frequently and dress flashing,their boys can easily setup into police net.be careful of their girls,you attract them most because of owo in your pkt.dont shout ontop of voice while on phone call in a public trotro with your nigeria's english accent,those close to you will be silent for a while and wary of you till the journeing end.it hard for a ghaianan to trust you as a Nigerian but if he/she do,some will fight for you at any level.Be Very Careful With Nigeria's boys there esp the ones that are not yet married,living in group,tatoos all over the body and unkeep hairstyle,

Well,this is,my input from the little experience i gathered in both cities.,Accra is lovely and more lively.Living standard here is more expensive than kumasi.Kumasi is cheaper to stay and easier to settle down .Their women here....i reserve my comment.If you wanna be on low key,start from kumasi with time,u can move to accra.I heard of takoradi and wish to explore there too.Pls,if u are there or have been there,kindlyshare with the houss,how the place is,compared to accra and kumasi.

hey bro, thanks alot for this information. I'm really grateful. I have actually concluded within me to start with kumasi and as time goes by i'd move to accra. But please i still have this question. Do you know if viewing centre would be a very good business there? Actually the thing is, i need to start something with the little cash i'd be going with before getting jobs or so.. But the issue is, i have this problem which is i don't know what exactly to do with the token i have that would sell much in ghana before i can secure a job.
The businesses i have in mind are, viewing centre, bet shop(though i need advice on their best betting business) and computer business? So which of these ones do you think i should go for just to get daily tokens to cater for myself till i'd be able to secure a job. And if you know any location in kumasi that would be good for any of the businesses above. I await your response soon. Thanks.

Supplying phones from Nigeria sells faster in Ghana and Computer appliances and your Target market could be Accra or Kumasi.Sport betting is a very lucrative business in Accra while viewing centre is not so a welcome idea.

Uhmm okay. You're not squatting are you? I'm based at Accra, never been to Kumasi. But I can assure you the standard of living in Accra is higher than Kumasi. So since you're hustling, Kumasi is a good choice. Pls note Ghanaians are very wary about Nigerians. You're going to be a suspect at first sight I'm sorry. But then, my people are very very nice. You'll enjoy your stay that's assured, I've family members at Kumasi tho. If you've any questions, pls do ask.

And while you're at Kumasi, try and learn a little twi, it'll help.

Thanks dee. i was actually been considerate of the cash at hand. can i settle in accra with that? and also if it's that possible. then i'd be so happy if you can help me with accomodation needs. i have been trying to find online any 70 cedis monthly single self contained but there has been no luck with it. that's my number one major concern. i'd know how to handle the rest once i can get that. if you can help me with any in accra or if in Kumasi, i really do not mind. though i would love it if i can get as low as that in Accra. Thanks so much dee.

Hmm, not only that accommodation is expensive at Accra, but other things like food items and transportation too. I think since you're starting afresh, you should go for Kumasi it's a wise decision. But if you insist. 70 cedis monthly? I'll ask my mum if it's possible and get back to you.

lol exactly, to a Nigerian the owner will say 300/400 cedis last Prize, take it or leave it. you know how your friends from that side like to show off. nowadays people don't believe them even if they say they are huslers. people think they have lots of cash meanwhile many of them are broke.
