What to See and Do in Douala, Cameroon

As we mentioned above, Cameroon's Douala isn't rich in tourist attractions. The city's rugged, slouchy charm can take awhile to warm up to. However, influenced by its French colonialist past, the dining in Douala is arguably the country's best! Throughout the downtown core, you'll find nice restaurants, French bakeries, and cute cafés. Many of these establishments overlook the Gulf of Guinea, offering lovely views for tourists! For other must-see venues around Douala, we recommend Place du Gouvernement, the government buildings, and Doual'art, a non-profit art gallery.
