Ghana is 4th must-visit destination in 2019 according to CNN

Ghana is placed Number 4 on the list of places to visit in 2019 according to Cable News Network (CNN).

In their annual list, which is released every year for travelers and tourist alike, CNN travel adjudged the country which was formerly known as “The Gold Coast” as a suitable travel destination in 2019.

The report described Ghana as “West Africa’s poster nation for economic success and political stability”

Adding that : “It is hoping to trade up its tourism status for 2019, with a campaign targeting the African diaspora whose ancestors were victims of the brutal slave trade of centuries gone by.

The country’s Year of Return marks 400 years since the first enslaved Africans arrived in North America. It’s a somber recognition of the evil that befell Ghana’s past inhabitants and their descendants — and the strength with which they’ve faced it.

Legacies of the slave trade are unavoidable. Cape Coast Castle, one of many historic coastal forts, was where slaves were held before being dispatched to America and the Caribbean. This brutal and fascinating reminder was visited by the Obamas in 2009 and Melania Trump in 2018.”

Currently the government of Ghana is hosting Black Hollywood big names including Boris Kudjoe, Idris Elba, Rosario Dawson, Diggy Simmons, Anthony Anderson, Jidenna, Michael Jai White, Nicole Ari Parker and Jerome Boateng in Accra.
