Conakry, the capital and largest city of Guinea, lies on the shores of Sangareya Bay and is recognised for its tasty cuisine and lively Kora music. It is an animated city, which relies heavily on its port, in terms of economy. Nevertheless, still offers a number of things to do, including visits to the Guinea National Museum and the Botanical gardens. Its local markets, with aroma’s and vivid colours are said to be perfect for souvenirs. Conakry hotels range from budget to luxurious.
