Dakar, the capital of Senegal, is one of West Africa’s largest cities. It is home to a fantastic music and arts scene, wonderful beaches and a vibrant nightlife. French influence is evident with patisseries and the arts, but Dakar also has a vibrant culture that is quite unique.
Dakar, also known as the melting pot city, is a vibrant city boasting many bars, cafes and restaurants. Shopping here is duty free. There are many beautiful contemporary buildings as well as historical colonial houses. The AfricanRenaissanceMonumentis a towering statue taller than the Statue of Liberty, and is located in the City Centre. It was unveiled in 2010 and has been a source of controversy since, the statue is meant to celebrate Senegal’s independence from France and to encourage pride in traditional African culture. Sadly some view it as anti-Western, being constructed in North Korea and evoking a Russian style. The huge price tag and the short skirt of the female figure have also raised criticism. Pointe des Almadies is the westernmost point in Africa, and offers superb surfing and numerous seafood restaurants.
