Ho is the capital of the Volta region in Ghana and is 3-4 hours from Accra.


Get in[edit]

From Accra you can catch an A/C tro-tro from Kinbu Gardens (3 hr).

Get around[edit]

To get around, take a taxi from anywhere. Standard fare is 50 pasewas. As with anywhere else in Ghana, make sure you note landmarks around you so you know what to tell the taxi driver on your way home. The Station (directly south of the market) has Tros going to regional destinations (such as Hohoe) and to Accra.

Taxis are difficult to find after midnight.

There are a ton of drinking spots in Ho. Tourists, volunteers, and peace corps types like to hang out at White House (next to the Stanbic Bank). Sky Plus Hotel is also nice and comes with an excellent view, but be warned that a taxi ride to and from there will be both difficult to obtain and expensive. If you prefer a more local experience, try Mirage. To get there, hire a taxi to "Voradep Village" and get out when the paved road ends.
