Experiencing Naija as a Tourist

My team and I travelled to Akwa Ibom a few years ago, not because we wanted to, we flew in because we could not get on board a direct flight to Calabar for an event, Uyo was our next best option.
It was an awesome trip! One we later tagged our #SouthSouthVacation as we ended up loving the road trip and spent a few days extra just so we could visit the breath taking  Obudu Cattle ranch, after exploring Tinapa, walking the unbelievably clean streets of Calabar while eating roasted corn and pear, grilled fish and unripe plantain.
This idea was birthed on that trip, coupled with the recent #BuyNaija trend and diversifying the economy we think tourism is one way to go.
We talk about diversifying the economy in Nigeria and Tourism can be one of the other ways to generate revenue.
Destination Naija (DN)is all about exploring and showcasing  the beauty of Naija in ways a lot of us are unaware of. Some of these places are so close and affordable!
Vacations do not necessarily need to involve a visa, stamped passports, lots of 'oyinbo'people in the background and a sizeable chunk of your savings to be fun, we can promote tourism in Nigeria.

If there are unexplored 'touristy' sites in your states do share with us.

welcome to Destination Naija!
