The Greater Accra region
Accra, the capital of Ghana, is a friendly city of about three million people. Its architecture ranges from traditional African buildings to large, elegant colonial houses and modern high-rise blocks. Since the early 1990s, a number of new buildings have gone up, including the distinctive boat-shaped national theatre, partly funded by the Chinese. The main commercial and business district runs north from the coastal forts of James and Ussher, the site of the original settlement, although many government and administrative offices and embassies are to be found in other parts of town. Traditionally home to the Ga people, the city has a sizeable expatriate and established foreign community from the United States, Europe, Lebanon and India as well as more recent immigrants from Mali, Niger and Nigeria. Refugees from neighbouring Liberia, Sierra Leone and Ivory Coast are confined to the crowded Budumburam camp in Central Region to the west of the capital. Accra is extremely humid and the city centre is congested with people and traffic but trees planted along the roads give it a green feel. Public transport consists of buses and trotros (minibuses); alternatively there are taxis, which are cheap (10,000 to 40,000 cedis maximum) and safe. Text: Beatrice Amoah. Last updated Jan 2006.
Also from wikipidia: Accra /??kr??/ is the capital city of Ghana, with an estimated urban population of 4,010,054 as of 2012. It is also the capital of the Greater Accra Region and of the Accra Metropolitan District, with which it is coterminous. Accra is furthermore the anchor of a larger metropolitan area, the Greater Accra Metropolitan Area (GAMA), which is inhabited by about 4 million people, making it the second largest metropolitan conglomeration in Ghana by population, and the eleventh-largest metropolitan area in Africa.
Accra stretches along the Ghanaian Atlantic coast and extends north into Ghana's interior. Originally built around a port, it served as the capital of the British Gold Coast between 1877 and 1957. Once merely a 19th-century suburb of Victoriaborg, Accra has since transitioned into a modern metropolis; the city's architecture reflects this history, ranging from 19th-century architecture buildings to modern skyscrapers and apartment blocks.
Accra serves as the Greater Accra region's economic and administrative hub. It is furthermore a centre of a wide range of nightclubs, restaurants and hotels. Since the early 1990s, a number of new buildings have been built, including the multi-storey French-owned Novotel hotel. The city's National Theatre was built with Chinese assistance. In 2010, the GaWC designated Accra a Gamma-minus-level world city, indicating a growing level of international influence and connectedness.
The central business district of Accra contains the city's main banks and department stores, and an area known as the Ministries, where Ghana's government administration is concentrated. Economic activities in Accra include the financial and agricultural sectors, Atlantic fishing, and the manufacture of processed food, lumber, plywood, textiles, clothing and chemicals.
Dansoman, near the coast 14km southwest of the city centre, is a large area with a predominantly middle/high-income population although some low-income people live here too. Housing is a mix of detached and semi-detached houses and apartments on estates built from the early 1970s onwards. The area has basic services such as water and electricity but there are severe shortages and residents need tanks for water storage. There is the usual range of post offices, internet cafes, schools, shops, bookshops, banks and police stations. Telephone lines are installed on request. The Methodist University College of Ghana, one of the newest private universities in the country, is to be found in Dansoman on the premises of the Wesley Grammar School. There are plenty of religious activities in this area and nightlife is lively. Trotros and taxis link this area to most parts of the city but traffic can be quite heavy at rush hour.
