Format: Paperback
I read this book on my second trip to Ghana and couldn't believe that I had made so many faux pas the first trip. This book is an excellent way to educate yourself about the cultural practices in Ghana and the basic do's and don't's as a tourist. Don't leave home without it!

I purchased this book for a friend of mine who was traveling with me to Ghana for her first time. I am quite familiar with Ghanaian culture and mentality and I found the book to be pretty concise.

HASH(0x9df415dc) out of 5 stars Not very useful Sept. 12 2011
By xtn - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
You can find all of the information you need about what to expect culture-wise in terms of customs and traditions online. When I received this book, I was able to read it in one short sitting and really, there was nothing new to be learned for my upcoming trip to Ghana. If you haven't looked up anything, heard anything or learned anything about Ghana prior to buying this book, it might be useful to you. Otherwise, you're better off spending your money buying the Bradt Travel Guide for Ghana (my "bible" during my month long trip to Ghana)

Wish I'd read this before my first trip to Ghana. Netter late than never. I've been to Ghana 3 times now and still had much to learn about the customs, attitudes and manners or the culture. Highly recommended!

I have been to Ghana and will be going back as well as taking others there, most will be first-timers. I found this book to be very accurate and I learned a lot of little things that will be helpful in the future. I will be using some of this book to educate the first-timers that will go to Ghana with me.
