Liberia’s capital Monrovia is a wonderful tropical seaside city of low-rise buildings amid countless palm trees. With a vibrant street culture but few tourist facilities, it’s an authentic African experience, and you will thoroughly enjoy soaking up the local culture.
The National Museum has a collection of 6000 artefacts, mostly looted during the war, so it’s a fascinating and sometimes chilling chronicle of Liberia’s turbulent recent history. Meanwhile, Waterside Market is the place to go for intricate handicrafts, and it’s a great place for people-watching. Settle down with a long cold drink and chill as the world bustles by!
