The Beauty of Ghana: Kumasi

Kumasi The Beauty of Ghana
Kumasi, also known as Oseikrom, is the capital of the Ashanti Region. It is famous for its lush landscape. No wonder it has been nicknamed the Garden City. Kumasi is located about 250 kilometres away from Accra. The vegetation gives it a cooler temperature as compared to Accra and Tamale. If you were to ask anybody about anything peculiar about the Ashanti region, the rich culture and traditions will definitely be part of it.

  1. Properties

    Comparatively, properties in Kumasi are more affordable than those in Accra. It is possible to acquire a two-bedroom house with two washrooms, a kitchen, a sitting room and a porch in a very good location like Abuakwa for GHS 150 per month. An architect based in Kumasi has observed that people in that city like to build their own properties to their specification, which accounts for the smaller number of apartments in that part of Ghana. There are also a number of exciting luxury developments in Kumasi such as Prabon Greenfields.

  2. Transportation

There is a good transportation system that links various places to Kejetia, the centre, for all business activities in the Ashanti region. The Sofoline Interchange that was completed a few years ago links various vicinities to the Central Business District.

  3. Education

The College of Education in Winneba has a campus in Kumasi. They offer regular and advanced courses for interested individuals.

  4. Commerce

A number of them include food crops like yams, plantain, cassava, palm nut and other vegetables. Bonwire, a town close to Kumasi, produces a colourful fabric known as the Kente. This fabric is unique as it is handwoven. There is a vibrant local shoe industry in Kumasi, which produces all kinds of footwear for both males and females. Adum, a business centre in Kumasi, is where most government agencies and other businesses are largely found, including Japan Motors, Cocobod, or British Council.
