We make our way to the West African city of Cotonou in Benin which has a rich cultural background and beautiful people.
Cotonou is a hub of informal trade in the sub-region due to its proximity with Nigeria.
A fishing village two centuries ago, the city has grown to be an economic center with a concentration of political institutions and banks.
Today, growing tourism has become one of the top priorities of Benin’s government.
According to government figures, the tourism sector contributes only to 2.5% to the GDP, despite its potential.
