Places Of Interest to visit In Lagos Pls by OmoAlata(f): 7:22pm On Jun 12, 2010
We'll be bringing the kids to Nigeria (Lagos) next month and I want them to have the time of their life's so much so they'll be begging us to take them back soon.  They've never been to Nigeria before and have only ever seen the bad side portrayed in documentaries on the telly etc.

Where can we visit please?  Thanks

Hi Omo,
There are lots of attractive places in Lagos. Some famous destinations are:
- Meia Praia Beach
- Culture Centre
- Delegaçao da Alfândega
- Praca Gil Eanes
- Bar Beach
- Lekki Beach
- Oba's Palace
- The National Museum
- Shrine of Fela.
You will find more destinations, when you will reach there. I’m sure you will enjoy a lot in Lagos.

I'd have thought this place will be brimming with interesting places by now, what with the hype about lagos being overload with activities

Lagos should have a dedicated tourist website by now


shrine of Fela? with the kids brilliant grin

Take them to Niger delta or Aba lol though very funny the place is now volatile but if you want to take ur kids out ther are lovely places to take them to in Lag.

Shoprite
Badagry historical sites
there are now lots or recreational centres though some of them will be flooded now but few are still ok.

Re: Places Of Interest to visit In Lagos Pls by Nixo: 12:58pm On Jun 23, 2010
I suggest you should really consider talking them on a GUARDED TOUR of the Niger-Delta region. Explaining to them the real reason you ran from the country to settle in a foreign land in the first place, LOL grin grin grin tongue

Re: Places Of Interest to visit In Lagos Pls by Kabikala(m): 1:08pm On Jun 23, 2010
Take them to your village to see how rural folks survive in this part of the world. You might even let them go to farm and learn that yams don't grow on trees and that the okro plant sometimes grow taller than adult humans.
It will be an unforgettable learning experience.

@post
Kids have more fun with their age group
having other kids their age to play with alone could make it a memorable visit. palms, galleria,beach. . .e.t.c would also add to the fun

Come visit ibadan, coolest city so far.

hmmmm where exactly in Ibadan?? undecided smiley

@Omo alata:

Take them to the country side, and make them see more natural stuffs. Especially the villages around. They'll love it. This is because I think they'll be bored seeing what they are used to abroad.
Show them wetin they never see! Drive them around the ghetto areas like Mushin, A.J etc and tell them stories of how things got that bad. Show them people suffering and tell them why they must not neglect or abuse the privilege they have.
Take them around beaches. You can as well fly them to other parts of the country like Obudu ranch and spend some few days there, using the opportunity to tour Ancient and modern Calabar. Visit museums and tell them stories about structures. You can also take them to Abeokuta to see the "Olumo" rocks

So nothing worthy to see in Lagos?

Shoprite? lol grin

And why would the poster want to fly all over the country i.e Obudu ranch. Oluomo rock when he specifically asked about Lagos?

good idea but depending on the age of the kids; might also backfire- they'll be scared for life or until they are older!!

@@@ OMO ALATA

Take them to a Police station to go and see the DPO with his pot belly and warn them never to try to become a police NEVER in Nigeria. grin grin
