A fast-growing gulf city in Nigeria’s Rivers state, Port Harcourt is the country’s capital for the oil industry. It’s a cosmopolitan place where English is widely spoken, although Igbo remains the dominant language.
The number one attraction is the State Museum, which boasts outstanding artefacts from the area’s different ethnic groups, including colourful masks and utensils. There are also a number of attractive small parks dotted throughout the urban area, so it’s little wonder that Port Harcourt is known throughout Nigeria as “the garden city”.
