Douala is the largest city and the commercial centre of Cameroon.
Douala is a large, sprawling city with several districts. Akwa is the most important central district, where all the business, commercial, and diplomatic life concentrates. Boulevard de la Liberté is the throbbing heart of the city with many shops and restaurants.
The Douala International Airport (DLA) serves as the main entrance point in the country. Camair-Co (national carrier) is the main service provider to the city of Douala. Two other airlines also fly to Europe - Air France (Paris) and Brussels Airlines (Brussels). Turkish Airlines also has direct flights to Douala from Istanbul. Several airlines provide links to African destinations.
Flights to Douala with major airlines are not available daily, hence a flexible schedule and a timely reservation is required.
Arrive at the airport about 3 hours before departure, as it often tends to be crowded, and long queues might prevent you from comfortably reaching your flights. Prepare for thorough checks at the custums and by the airport police authorities. Avoid confrontation with the authorities, but be firm and request to talk to their superiors if they ask you to pay a bribe.
If you are worried about your safety or worried about missing the plane, you can get a ride to or from airport with Africa Airport Transfers.
Getting around in Douala is easiest by shared taxis. Shared Toyota taxi-cabs (yellow) are available throughout the city in daytime, while getting one late at night might be more difficult. You will only be given a ride if your fellow-passengers are also traveling in the same direction as you.
Hiring a chauffeur to take you out of town is possible and is the safest way. Make sure you hire your chauffeur if he is recommended to you by a friend or a business partner whom you know well.

When in Douala, the closest beach to go to is Limbe. Limbe (formerly Victoria, after Queen Victoria of England) is a seaside city in the Southwest Region of Cameroon. Limbe has some nice streches of beach for sunbathing. Facilities are basic, water currents might be very strong. Be cautious, and ask the locals whether the ocean is safe for swimming or not. Excellent fish restaurants are widely available in Limbe.
Handicrafts, painted masks, beads, headscarfs, local chocolate, coffee. Look for them in Limbe, where these things tend to be much cheaper. Ask your local friend to buy it for you to get real value for money.
