Port Harcourt: Attractions and more...
Apart from all the greenery and blue water that can be seen at the port side, the city has a lot to offer its guests. If you’re looking for a place to stay, try Mina Hotels or splurge on a stay at the Hotel Presidential or the Novotel Hotel.
The culturally-minded visitors can visit the Rivers State Integrated Cultural Centre and the Rivers State Museum, both of which are situated in Port Harcourt and showcase historic material related to the city’s past as well as samples of true African heritage. A colourful festival that takes place sometime in November is the annual Rivifest, where locals and tourists are treated to various cultural dances, masquerades, boat regattas and more festivities.
Be sure to whet your appetite with Port Harcourt’s extremely popular Suya. Available at shops along the town roads, Suya is a spicy meat kebab cooked over a charcoal grill. It is usually accompanied by the locally made drink Guiness.
