More info about Benin City

Located in the Edo state in the southern part of Nigeria, the city of Benin is almost twenty-five miles north of the Benin River. Benin city was considered one of the most influential cities in West Africa until the British came into the country and took some 2000 bronze statues back to their home country. Leaving the city to be known as Nigeria's rubber industry and also the place to process palm nuts into oil, which you can find in abundance on any street corner.

The spectacular city is surrounded by the fantastical beauty of ancient moats, which magically take you back into the fairytales you used to read as a child. The moat was said to have taken almost 3 and a half years to make to keep enemies out of the city. Although there are a few things to consider when visiting this historical landmark.

There are a lot of scammers in the city trying to get as much money as they can out of the tourists, such as young men asking for charitable donations for Christian ministries. Do not fall for this, as it is a scam. The city is full of beautiful places to visit as well, there are various festivals in the city, but mostly, it is a centre for traditional art, the statues in the Okada House, the Benin City National Museum is an interesting place to visit and of course Oba's Palace which will leave you in awe.
