Spend a weekend in Kumasi!




Travelling is so stressful! I'm sure a lot of people would agree with me. The thought of a fun vacation however can make it worth while. One of my fav trips this semester was the road trip to Kumasi!!! Well if you've been there before you don't need to roll your eyes but if you haven't..."what are you waiting for?" Kumasi is not so far really, it's just about 4 to 5 hours away from Accra. Going there isn't a problem either because there are these big red VIP buses at Circle that move by the hour or so to Kumasi. It's not even expensive so you would not need more than GHc15 to go. Don't worry about comfort because the bus is designed just like an airplane and it usually makes a stop at this place with really clean toilets and food vendors called Linda Dor. You'll have to pay 20p to use them though and the prizes of snacks there are inflated. I'll personally advise that you go when KNUST is having their hall week so there will be activities that weekend or else your trip may turn out boring. It would also help if you know someone to show you around and let you know where there's stuff going on. If you're lucky you may have a friend you can stay with. If this isn't the case, I recommend SMS guest house which is on KNUST campus because that's where we stayed and it was very affordable, safe and comfortable.
