Bangui

— 4 nights
Bangui, or Bangî in Sango, formerly written Bangi in English, is the capital and largest city of the Central African Republic. Step out of the city life by going to Les Chutes de Boali and Oubangui River. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Musee de Boganda (Boganda Museum) and K-Cinq (Km-5 Intersection). There's still lots to do: soothe aching muscles at Melanie's Beauty, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Notre-Dame of Bangui Cathedral, hunt for treasures at Marche Central (Central Market), and admire all the interesting features of Place de la Republique.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Bangui trip planning tool.

Natural attractions in Central African Republic include large forested areas rich in wildlife, especially lowland gorillas and elephants. One the most impoverished and historically unstable countries in the world, CAR remains known for its openness, its people praised for their welcoming nature and positive attitude. The Central African Republic Bush War began in 2004 and, despite a ceasefire in 2007, the fallout from the conflict and re-ignition of sectarian and political violence has made travel to the country inadvisable ever since.
