GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Cotonou, formerly Kutonu, is the largest city and economic centre of Benin. It is the seat of the government, although Porto Novo is the official capital. It is home to most of the country's government buildings and diplomatic services. The city boasts a major port, an international airport and a railway that links to Parakou.

FABIO'S REVIEW

Yellow-Living
Yellow-Visiting

Cotonou has no touristic interest, but would be the place to live in Benin, as it is the city with all the shops, restaurants, clubs, medical facilities and all required infrastructure.

It is also very close to the Ganvie floating village, which you can visit on a day trip from Cotonou.
