Welcome to Treichville


Tourists to Abidjan looking for a little entertainment should head to the area of Treichville, a small commune located in the southwest of the city. Full of bars and restaurants, as well as a race course, swimming pool and sports park, this is the area of the city in which you are undoubtedly most likely to run into other tourists or expats based in Abidjan. While you should check with your hotel on the safety situation before stepping out at night, Treichville is certainly the place to go if you want to sample some of the city's surprisingly vibrant nightlife. The Living Room, located in the bustling area known as Crossroad France-Amérique, is a popular place among locals and tourists alike.

Information & Facts

The official language of Ivory Coast is French but more than 60 native dialects are spoken.

The official currency is the CFA Franc (XOF), divided into 100 centimes. The CFA Franc is linked to the Euro. New notes were issued in 2004 and only those issued by the Bank of West African States ( Banque des États de l'Afrique de l'Ouest) are valid currency. There are a few ATMs in Abidjan but most will accept only Visa cards. It is unwise to use an ATM that is not guarded. Credit cards are accepted in the larger hotels and better restaurants. Most shops require cash. Travellers cheques are accepted in banks, as well as some tourist orientated hotels and restaurants.
