Guinea is popularly known for its beautiful coastline, wildlife and national parks. Its unique cultures, as well as buildings and landmarks dating back to Portuguese colonisation, also makes it a very interesting place to visit.
How Guinea came to be
In the 15th century, Portuguese sailors used “Guiné” to describe an area near what is today Senegal, and by the 18th century, Europeans used “Guinea” to refer to much of the West African coastline. As colonisers carved up the continent, many European nations controlled their own Guinea. At independence in 1958, French Guinea became Guinea.
Today, Guinea is among the poorest in West Africa despite being blessed with vast mineral resources.
The national capital, Conakry, lies on Tombo (Tumbo) Island and spreads up the Camayenne (Kaloum) Peninsula; it is the country’s main port.
The old city, located on Tombo Island, retains the segregated aspect of a colonial town, while the Camayenne Peninsula community has only a few buildings of the colonial period. From the tip of the peninsula, an industrial zone has expanded northward.
How to get to Guinea
Conakry International Airport, also known as Gbessia International Airport, is the main airport serving Conakry, capital of the Republic of Guinea in West Africa.
The unit of currency is the Guinea franc (GFr). Guinea is a cash economy. Only the major five-star hotels in Conakry and international airline offices will accept plastic.
You can change money inside a bank, with moneychangers on the street in Conakry, or with hotels. For travellers Euros are best, followed by US dollars.
The banking system in Guinea has improved recently and some major towns now have ATMs that work with international Visa and Mastercard (the latter though is less likely to be accepted).
Things to know about Guinea
Tipping and Bargaining: In the best restaurants in Conakry a 10% tip is normal. Elsewhere tipping is not expected.
A tip for Tourist guides and drivers is expected. If you hired a guide or driver for a week expect to tip the equivalent of one extra day’s work.
Bargaining for most transactions is not expected. Exceptions to this are any form of carving or art produced and sold by the handful of tourist-oriented craft shops. If renting a car, boat or other form of transport you should bargain, but expect the original asking price to be close to the final figure.
