DISCOVER THE IVORY COAST

Ivory Coast

Seen from airplane, the Ivory Coast looks like a painter’s palette: a green environmental touch to represent the density of the forest, a white line for its coastal strip, straw yellow strands for savannas mended and Senoufo, brown hint for reliefs, ocher ribbons for laterite roads or gray for bitumen, blue for lakes … Côte d’Ivoire reveals a multitude of colors rivaling vivacity.

Seen from below, Ivory Coast strikes us violently by its sociocultural, economic and architectural contrasts. Between the hyper modernisms, even futurism of some neighborhoods of Abidjan, neoclassicism of Yamoussoukro and the traditional dwelling on remote villages, like those of Yacouba country of the Man region, or sénoufo side of Korhogo, there is a chasm!

In Ivory Coast, everyone can find somethings to satisfy his interests: relaxation, fishing, photogenic landscapes and ethnological, artisanal or agricultural discoveries…
