Let CheapFaresNow get you to centrally located, equatorial Cotonou. Visit Boulevard St. Michel, (this sentence doesn’t make much sense without the section you wanted to delete – I personally would not delete “and take in”) the hub of activities along this busy street. Other sites to visit in Cotonou include the National University of Benin; Cotonou Cathedral, also known as the Notre Dame des Apotres; and the Ancien Pont Bridge. Once you’ve explored the city, check out nearby Ganvie, a fairy-tale like city built on stakes balanced over Lake Nokoué.
Established in the sixteenth century to keep out the Fon warriors, who were forbidden from entering water, Ganvie is a lovely place to spend a day. From Cotonou, you can also take a trip to Porto Novo where you’ll find many museums and the royal palace. A short drive to the west and you’ll find Quidah, a port city that is rich with history. To make all this travel convenient, Cotonou is a great place to make visa and other further travel arrangements. If you’re traveling during the months of April through July or September and October, don’t forget your rain gear!
