Cheap flights from Guinea

The Republic of Guinea, also referred to as simply Guinea, is a West African country formerly known as French Guinea. It is also called Guinea-Conakry to distinguish it from the neighboring Republic of Guinea-Bissau (Guinea-Bissau) and Republic of Equatorial Guinea (Equatorial Guinea). The territory of Guinea-Conakry has an area of 245,860 square kilometers. It is bordered by Guinea-Bissau and Senegal to the north, Mali to the north and northeast, Côte d'Ivoire to the east, and Liberia and Sierra Leone to the south. The capital and largest city of Guinea is Conakry. 

 

Where to go

Îles de Los - Îles de Los, or Loose Islands, are an island group lying off Conakry. The three main islands are Tamara (Fortoba), Kassa, and Roume, and the smaller islands are Coraille, Blanche, and Cabris. Take a Guinean boat to the islands for a breath of fresh air, a tranquil ambience, beautiful scenery, and a relaxed, swimming weekend getaway.  

Grande Mosquée - The Grande Mosquée in Conakry was financed primarily by Saudi Arabia. It was inaugurated in 1984, and its inner hall is capable of accommodating 10,000 people. Visit the Islamic Centre next door if you want to arrange a tour. 

Conakry National Museum - Though not particularly impressive, Conakry National Museum, also called Guinea National Museum, is worth a visit if you have time. Entrance is cheap and it features displays of the ethnography and prehistory of Guinea, with a nice collection of masks, fetishes, and artworks. The museum was established sometime after Guinea gained independence in 1960, and is located beside the Ignace Deen Hospital.
