The MOST PERFECT Guide to Visiting Lagos, Nigeria

In the early months of 2021, one of my long-time travel blogger friends, Andrew Boland of Andy’s World Journeys pitched an impeccable idea to me. He said that I could write a guest post on visiting Lagos but this time, from the perspective of a first timer or foreigner to be more precise.

Great idea! I thought and after a couple of things fell in place, I began work on what I like to call “The MOST PERFECT Guide to Visiting Lagos, Nigeria.

Yeah, I’m actually blowing my trumpet, kinda.

This guest post features diverse subhead lists including must-knows, what to do and not do in Lagos, Nigeria, and a bundle of touristy attractions to visit when you come to my profound city of excellence.

So, kindly have a look at my article on Andy’s travel blog linked below after the excerpt.

Thanks in advance!

It’s a guest post from Nigerian travel blogger, Eromonsele Emmanuel! What is Lagos like?

A Step-by-step Guide to Visiting Nigeria’s Most Populous City – Lagos!

And please friend, leave a comment after reading.

Cheeeee!!!

    You make Lagos sound better than it really is, either that or I haven’t really experienced Lagos, traffic is normal bit it’s also definitely not normal, also Lagos is for the strong hearted. Good luck to everyone who wants to come. Good write up Emmanuel

    Someone once told me what we see in movies isn’t necessarily what Nigeria looks. He said theres a lot people do not know about Niherai especially Lagos. Thank you for the guide
