Bobo Dioulasso

The city of Bobo-Dioulasso is a very relaxed place and a pleasure to spend a few days. It has the same boulevards and interesting market places as the capital but with a more chilled out feel to them and very little hassle even in the Grand March. There are a few interesting sights. Among the major highlights to see is the Muse Provincial du Hout, but without a doubt, the most interesting sight is the Grande Mosque. The old Kibidw district is also a great area to stroll around, where you have to take a guide but it’s well worth the experience to see how this side of the city lives and if you’re lucky you may well be treated to a performance by some of the musicians who live in the part of the town.
