It is no news how beautiful Nigeria is. The artistic landscape, resources (both human and natural), dynamic culture, and Lifestyle are as thought-provoking as they are a sight to behold.
The country, though in recent times has been through a lot, especially from the outbreak of the pandemic in 2020. Howbeit, If the enthusiasm witnessed on new year’s eve were to be considered, I will say it was a sign of greater things to come.
Nigeria still houses some of the best tourist destinations in Africa! Tourism tends better as the country is gradually adapting to the post-pandemic life and more places are opening up. To start your exploring this year, I have a few places, to begin with:
