ABUJA’s THUMB UPS

A network of gardens and relaxation parks will appeal to visitors to Abuja, not to mention the wide, well paved and marked roads. Arts related events are on the rise in the city as fashion show, music concert and others are coming up almost every weekend.

Abuja is a city with a congenial weather condition, bewitching undulating topography of hills, rocks and valleys and sparsely populated with very accommodating aboriginal ethnic group.

A trip to Abuja would not be completed without a visit to iconic edifices such as the National Mosque with its golden dome glistening in the sun. It is one of the most impressive sights to behold in Abuja!

National Ecumenical Centre is another spectacular architectural edifice that makes Abuja stands out unique. The centre which is open for the public on days other than public holidays, has striking features that represent neolithic style of work.

Also worth checking out are Wonderland Park, Millennium Park, Zuma Rock, IBB Golf Club, National Arboretum, Ladi-Kwali Pottery Centre, Aso Rock, Julie Useni Park etc.

The city is in tune with nature, abundant hills, highlands and other distinguishing features that make it a delight to behold. A scene that cannot be missed about Abuja is the coming together of the Savannah grassland of the north and the middle belt with the richness of the tropical rain forests of the south.

This marriage of nature has ensured that Nigeria capital city is endowed with fertile land for agriculture and at the same time a yearly climate that is neither too hot nor too cold.

The city has variety of world known brand hotels ranging from 5 stars to low budget accommodation. Most of the hotels are conducive and equipped with modern facilities.

ABUJA’s THUMB DOWNS

Abuja is a new and growing city and visitors should expect to spot construction sites scattered all over the city. Nightlife in the city is not as vibrant as it is in Lagos owning to the fact that Abuja is still a growing city. Power supply is considerably stable but however visitors may experience brief power cut during their stay.

However, this should not have any impact on your visit to the city as most of the hotels are well-equipped with modern alternative power generating plants. Abuja is known as a peaceful city but the recent attacks in the city had brought her into limelight as well as raising the questions of security within the city.

Visitors to Abuja might spot security agencies patrolling the city to ensure security of lives and properties.
