West Africa - Cote D'Ivoire (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.
- take your taste buds to poisson braisé heaven then swaying to the sweet sounds of coupé-decalé in the shadow of the stunning skyline in Abidjan
- tap into Côte d'Ivoire's artistic vibe, visiting galleries and the quirky beachfront bistros of Grand Bassam
- laze in a pirogue, watch surfers slide to shore and tuck into fresh seafood under the stars of Assinie
