West Africa - Cote D'Ivoire (PDF Chapter)
This is the Côte d'Ivoire chapter from Lonely Planet's West Africa guidebook.
Côte d'Ivoire is a stunner, shingled with starfish-studded sands, and forest roads so orange they resemble strips of bronzing powder. Parc National de Taï hides nut-cracking chimps; and the beach resorts Assinie and Grand Bassam were made for weekend retreats.
