I Would Like To Visit Cotonou. How Can I Get There?

Hi,

I would like to visit Benin republic. Can anyone please give info on

1) how to get there from Lagos and average cost of transportation

2) how to change naira into francs

3) is it possible to go and come back in a day

4) what is there to see in Benin and which city is closest to Lagos

I am not going there to shop. I stay in the US, will be in Lagos and would just like to visit the place. Some of my friends from school went there for an internship last year and seemed to find it strange that I hadnt been there. You know, the way people regularly cross the border to mexico and canada or from france to Italy etc.

So I made up my mind to go there, sort of like a cultural experience.

Anyway, please reply if u can tell me how to get there. Thanks.

U do not need a visa to visit any West African country. You only need a passport. The West African agreement allows any west african in to a country in the zone for 60 days with out a visa.

I doubt if you can go and return same day. You can get a bus to seme from Mile 2 and then to cotnou from seme (border). You can change your notes at the border.

If you go by air you can go and return in a day. You don't need a visa.
