Poor, but Rich: Burkina Faso
Ouagadougou is the capital of Burkina Faso. It is where most serious economic activities happen. It is similar to Bobo-Dioulasso. It is famous for its nightlife and its music and dance shows.
Gorom Gorom is the largest market in the country. It is good to visit this market to get a deep insight about the goods and wares of this country.
Sindou is a rocky hill known for its sharp peaks. It is the best place to watch sunset in the country. It is difficult to explain how exciting it is to watch sunset through the sharp peaks.
Lake Tangrela is the most attractive tourist location in the country. It is the presence of hippos in this lake that makes this lake even more attractive. It is one of the few places in the world where the demarcation that separates soul from nature does not work.
Ziniare is the most popular wildlife park located in the country. Lions, tigers and hyenas are the common animals seen in this park.
There are many more attractions in Burkina Faso. Most of those attractions are least explored regions. This country is not only famous for these attractions, but also for its culture, art, food, music and architecture. There is no serious difference between the Burkina Faso cuisine and West African cuisine. Both are based on rice, potato, beans and okra.
It is hoped the growth of tourism sector will help the country to surmount poverty. Now, at least eighty per cent of the employable population of this country relies on the agricultural sector for their livelihood. The land is not that suitable for agriculture, as it is situated in the drought prone region of Africa. It is important to open up the gates of new opportunities in the country at the earliest. As per a study, a good number of women and children in this country are the victims of food scarcity.
