Hi fellow travellers, friends & lovers who love to tour around the World to know more stuff about what nature have for us. Do consider Ghana too as your choice in your travel list. One would ask, at which area or region of Ghana? Yes, many people do think of Accra being outstanding and surpasses all, yes!, but you can also miss many regions which have beautiful and attractive things.
Consider Kumasi, the Garden City in Africa. The most beautiful things lovely to watch, stimulate and refreshes with. Very serene environment with natural things like zoo with lots of animals. Our cultural museum which you can learn a lot of things here in Kumasi Cultural center. The Manhyia palace which has been number tourist site for many people in the world. The Barekese dam which supply power to some part of Ashanti and the Lake Bosomtwe for some occasions like Easter celebrations.
Apart from this, there are many luxurious things you can achieve here in Kumasi. Something like items we use for our daily activities, items like fridges, furniture, tv, stationery, provisions, food and many other things are very cheap here. Today I found myself to travel for shipping in Kumasi, one of the renowned shopping place where Ghanaians mostly shops is "Melcom."
I set off the journey early morning. In the car we observed all the protocols for covid 19 preventive measures. Many people are afraid to travel and even mix with their friends because of the disease. If that happens productivity goes down. Well, the only thing is to ensure that you are safe with the materials for combatting the pandemic. I made sure to wear my nose mask. No communication was ensured since I didn't even know anybody in the car.
We reached Kumasi safely and on time. I just walked slow through the crowd, that multitude of people through Adum where Melcom is located. There are a lot of things here. I wished all are bought and brought to my house, but impossible to happen. Not all people found here are buying, some are for window shopping, taking pictures of beautiful scenes here. I found nice display of bicycles packed here, materials for drawing for kids, flowers and many other things
I stood at the stationeries and flowers to have few shots there. They are so nice to me. Any time I come here I want to have fun, whether or not I have money for shopping. Here, you can even buy only thing and no one questions you since that what your pocket can afford.
Every aisle both left and right have stock of items to offer you. What do you need at all that you wouldn't get? Everything is here to buy; pure water, soft drinks, biscuits, chocolate, package rice, branket, bowls, fan, iron, carpet, gas cylinder, tv sets and everything you want are found here. They even have new store at the top straight just few distance from this old structure.
I bought few items like fruit drinks and breat for my kids.i was very confused for my selection of some of these drinks. Almost everything here is good to taste. But, I must be careful not to make over spending.
I went to the cashier's table to displayed the items purchased for her to calculate. I paid her after telling me the amount as displayed on her computer. It was just Ghc 14.00 less than $3.00. I exited and came to "Jolly phones" where brands of mobile phones are sold. Phones are cheaper here. So many people live to purchase from this store. I bought itel mobile phone just very cheap than my estimated price. This phone is used for making calls and texting and not for browsing since there is no internet connection. There are many people busily trading buying in bulk. But their services are good since more workers are found here to attend to every individual.
I was now Ok with my motive of coming to Kumasi. I returned to station and bothered in a car back to my house. It was just a nice touring Kumasi, the Garden City.
Cheers Friends Travellers, My hug for you All!!
