Major tourist attractions in Nigeria

The very first and foremost step, if you are planning to visit the country, is obtaining a Nigerian visa. Obviously, a visit to major tourist attractions similarly starts at Lagos, the country’s major commercial and industrial hub, and a one time capital of Nigeria.
Lagos has a bit of both worlds, which implying both the most wonderful and totally awful places. The more awful ones are generally characterised by over congested building complexes, and they comprise disastrously low or absolutely nil ventilation facilities, while the more wonderful ones offer a peaceful coexistence to even the most diverse local tribes. That portrays Lagos to rest of the world as a factual image of mini-Nigeria. The city is hence nicknamed ‘No Man’s Land’, for it has the latent potential to accommodate everyone in its wide open folds and also create profuse opportunities for ones who are sufficiently endowed with determination as well as the aptitude to work hard in search of quick riches.
As tourist on a Nigeria visa, you will either be exhilarated or completely bored with what all awaits you at its doorstep. When it comes to the hottest nightclubs and bars in Lagos, you have the option to choose and pick what you are out to get.
To name a few major tourist attractions in Nigeria, your visit could start from the Azumini Blue River, located in the Abia State, closer to its borders with the Akwa lbom State. It could then be followed by a visit to the Long JuJu Shrine of Arochukwu. This is a popular tourist attraction on account of the oracle cave, with religious significance for many. Next is the fine Ibeno Beach, located in the Akwa lbom State and a haven for water sport lovers.
If you are a tourist, holding a Nigeria visa, and the one for wonders put on by nature, you should make every attempt not to miss the Ogbunike Cave which is located in the Anambra State, a few kilometres distance from the market town of Onitsha. After a hectic day’s sightseeing tires you out, make a stopover at the Tourist Village in Rojenny, located in the Anambra State, for relaxation and recuperation of your drained energy.
Visiting major tourist attractions in Nigeria is synonymous with hunting for exotic souvenirs, which again means bartering to your hearts desire. Yet, there’s a pitfall! Regardless of how fascinating you may find the new experience of bartering in Nigeria or how quickly you are able to master this popular art, when flying internationally, luggage restrictions applicable to each passenger will be stringently adhered to on your return flight. So, you must shop/barter wisely, and principally just for the items that you can carry back home with ease and comfort.
