Ghana named 4th in 46 places to go in 2013, South Africa, Congo and Morocco also named.

I might be totally biased but I guess there is no denying the pride one feels when their country makes positive strives. This month, the NYTimes came out with the top places to visit this year and guess which country came in 4th? Yes, Ghana not only made the list but made the top 5. This is what the article read;

A buzzing metropolis ready for business and pleasure.
Accra, the capital of Ghana, has welcomed business travelers for years. Now tourists are streaming in, a byproduct of the fact that the country has Africa’s fastest-growing economy and is also one of its safest destinations. The M√∂venpick Ambassador Hotel (with poolside bar and waiters on roller skates) opened in 2011, and the Marriott Accra — the chain’s first sub-Saharan offering — will feature a casino and upscale shopping when it opens in the spring. On Accra’s packed beaches, you’ll see everything from snake handlers to plantain peddlers. Head to the upscale neighborhood of Osu and hit the treehouse-inspired terrace at Buka for fine West African food. The best Ghanaian adventures start with a giant plate of tomato-smothered tilapia and banku — a fermented yeast paste that’s tastier than it sounds — washed down with local Star beer. — Karen Leigh



















I couldn'tagree more. Ghana is on the fast track to becoming if not the most, then one of the most influential, stable, safe and culturally sound places in Africa. From the political climate, which is not always popular but democratic to the rich history of the people. 

Also mentioned in the article were 23. Constantia South Africa, 39. Republic of Congo and 45. Casablanca Morocco.
