Tourism is a billion dollar industry in serious countries which generates massive revenue, both for the state and private individuals and Ghana is impressively utilizing some of the very intriguing tourist attractions we have.
In the annual list of CNN travel, which is released every year for travellers and tourist alike, Ghana which was formerly known as “The Gold Coast” was adjudged the 4th suitable travel destination in 2019.
The report described Ghana which also known as the as “West Africa’s poster nation for economic success and political stability”.
It added: “It is hoping to trade up its tourism status for 2019, with a campaign targeting the African diaspora whose ancestors were victims of the brutal slave trade of centuries gone by.
Ghana however, has dubbed 2019 as a "A year of return". This is to mark 400 years since the first enslaved Africans arrived in North America. It’s a somber recognition of the evil that befell Ghana’s past inhabitants and their descendants — and the strength with which they’ve faced it.
