A Nigerian's opinion on visiting Nigeria

edited October 2010 in - West Africa
one of the most exciting places you can visit is nigeria..a nation of over one hundred fifty million people..welcome to beauty,chaos and the real africa..for first time visitors,i would advise you get a guide or a frend to take u round..take malaria vaccination from your country..nigeria is a cashrun economy..if u get a good guide u would spend less when u are in the country...there are all classes of hotels in d country..ur pocket determines where u stay...places to see...lagos is the newyork of africa, the largest black city in da world,a night crawlers delight..d city is greatly, transport, electricity supply , sewage and roads are better.. world class beaches, a yacht hotel, slave trade ports and relics, markets, malls, cinemas, clubs, festival and carnivals....others are ancient cities, palaces, walls, cultural and religious festivals,ruins of cities,wild life....scammers are not looking for u on d streets but online..avoid trouble spots and u would just be fine..avoid drinking water from d taps,buy from stores ..there are resturants to cater for your needs...with a good guide, u would be ok...for further info on nigeria, ask me directly..[email removed]..

    hey all, i just want to find out about Nigerian id cards, is it true that in your country you cannot just apply for an id card and that there is only specific periods for you to apply? or can you apply whenever you feel like it. can they also apply for a passport with their birth certificate only? nigerians please shed some light on this matter for me. thank you in abundance

    You need Yellow Fever shot for entry into the country and Malaria pills if in mosquito areas. Buy the pills there as they are like $2.00 or $85 in USA
