Enjoy the city,
mind your business,
be friendly back.

public transportation is hectic (temporary) but state owned transportation is better and cheaper but slower.

accommodation is fair enough, lots of nice locations and buildings to choose from just avoid water logged areas because rain and Benin city na 5&6

Power distribution is ok.

food stuffs are quite expensive compared to other towns, I guess nobody is farming in edo state.

em....feel free to ask me more.d

Well transportation cost is okay
Crime rate is okay..It was much worse a few years ago..I guess most robbers have turned to yahoo
Housing is affordable
The streets are mostly waterlogged when it rains due to bad drainage system so make sure u choose an area that isn't prone to flooding
Rainy season here is usually very rainy so is dry season..it's a harsh weather
There are a lot of pretty girls here
Benin people are not too ambitious u can feel it in the spirit of the city..
Night life is 5/10
Food is quite cheap
There are two malls..one at kada plaza and filmhouse close to uniben.

These is my experience as a uniben student residing in Benin for more than 4 years now

liljboy10 and tonididdy, thanks for your contribution.

Are there areas that are more prone to criminal activities? And how late can someone stay out at night?
