Lome, the capital city of Togo, may not be the first destination that comes to mind when planning a trip to West Africa, but it’s worth a visit. This vibrant city boasts a beautiful coastline, colorful markets, and friendly people. The Grand Marché, the largest market in Lomé, is a must-visit for its array of goods ranging from spices to clothing. For a more relaxed experience, head to the beach at sunset or visit the National Museum to learn about Togolese history and culture. Lomé may not be a well-known destination.
