Tourists to Abidjan looking for a little entertainment should head to the area of Treichville, a small commune located in the southwest of the city. Full of bars and restaurants, as well as a race course, swimming pool and sports park, this is the area of the city in which you are undoubtedly most likely to run into other tourists or expats based in Abidjan.
While you should check with your hotel on the safety situation before stepping out at night, Treichville is certainly the place to go if you want to sample some of the city's surprisingly vibrant nightlife. The market is worth a visit during the day; offering an array of interesting and affordable items.
