Aflao is the coastal town in Ghana bordering Togo. While east of the Togolese side of the border the city is the capital, Lome, the so-called 'Paris of West Africa', the Ghanaian town is a typical African border town built solely to service the movement of people and goods. There are a few restaurants and hotels and the rest of the economy is driven by street side currency converters who will give rates of varying attractiveness to convert Ghanaian Cedis to Togolese West African Francs.

Minivans and buses leave regularly for several Ghanaian towns, with trips along the coast to Accra leaving very frequently at cheap prices.
