Douala

Located at the mouth of the Wouri River, Douala is the economic capital of Cameroon and, alongside Yaoundé, the country’s largest city. Douala is dotted with interesting monuments, including the Pagoda, the Palace of the Kings Bell in Bonanjo, Saint Peter and Saint Paul Cathedral, the Centenary Temple and the Maritime Museum. The Central Market and Dakar Square, both very lively, are a treat for the eyes, as are Mboppi and Deido markets, while the flower market along Avenue de Gaulle is also worth a peek. Artists and art lovers, don’t miss the Audiovisual Meetings of Douala (February) or the Douala Art Fair (end of May-beginning of June). Inquisitive minds meet at Ngondo, the traditional festival that brings together the Sawa peoples of the coastal region (December).
