Stretched along the Atlantic Ocean, Ghana's chief city – Accra- is the Anglophone West African country's administrative, economic, and educational ‘capital’. The city is home to famous structures, ancient forts and castles, cultural landmarks, traditional markets, sparkling beaches, and vibrant nightlife.

Accra's architecture reflects its colonial past, with castles from the 17th century coexisting with contemporary skyscrapers. The city embodies, and best represents the well-known Ghanaian hospitality label. The climate in this city is hot and semi-arid. Throughout the year, daily temperatures range from 32°C (89.6°F) to 22°C (71.6°F). Beginning in April and lasting into mid-July, precipitation usually takes the form of brief but powerful thunderstorms.
