The list included the cities of Berlin in Germany, Caen in France, Las Vegas In America, Athens in Greece, Madrid in Spain, Mozambique's Benguerra Island and others.

According to this classification, Accra was considered because it is easy to access with many flights being able to enter the country daily.

TIME added that tourists have many things to see and enjoy in the capital including museums, beaches, arts, amongst others.

"Accra is a key destination for visitors interested in connecting with Africa’s history and its people’s heritage," the Magazine said.

Accra's nightlife, as well as good food, were not left out of things visitors should look out for.

About the survey

Before compiling the World’s Greatest Places list, TIME solicited nominations of places including countries, regions, cities and towns—from our international network of correspondents and with an eye toward those offering new and exciting experiences.

According to TIME, its third annual list highlights one hundred extraordinary travel destinations around the world.

The publication stated that the third annual list of the World’s Greatest Places “is a tribute to the people and businesses at the forefront of those industries who, amid extraordinary circumstances, found ways to adapt, build and innovate. It shines a light on ingenuity, creativity, revitalization and reopenings in destinations across the world.”
