Informações práticas sobre Acra

Passear pela cidade

Taxis are plentiful in Accra and can be hailed directly from the street. They're unmetered, so be prepared to negotiate the fare before getting into the vehicle; taxi drivers are notorious for trying to overcharge foreigners. Shared minibus taxis (tro tros) travel along set routes around the city. They're the cheapest and most popular means of getting around Accra, but not always the safest due to poorly maintained vehicles and erratic driving habits. Tro tro drivers will usually have an assistant who will yell out the destination as the tro tro approaches a stop. Car hire is available at the airport, and it's possible to hire a vehicle with a driver, which is often the best way of travelling around the city.

Hora local

Local time is GMT.

Eletricidade

Electrical current is 230 volts, 50Hz. Both round and flat three-pronged plugs are commonly used.

Moeda

The official currency is the Cedi (GHC), which is divided into 100 pesewas. Foreign currency can be exchanged at any forex bureau as well as at some commercial banks; banks and foreign exchange facilities are available at the airport and in all major towns. It is advisable to keep currency exchange receipts in order to be able to re-exchange when departing. Banking hours are usually from 8.30am to 3pm Monday to Friday, and most large commercial banks have ATMs located outside, although only limited amounts of Cedis can be drawn at a time. The most widely accepted credit cards are American Express, Diners and Visa, and cards can be used for payment at major hotels and shops, although this can be risky as credit card fraud is very common. The best currencies to bring are US dollars, British Pounds or Euros as other currencies exchange at poor rates. Travellers should be aware that larger Cedi notes can usually only be used in larger establishments such as hotels and restaurants as smaller enterprises will often not have change.

Comunicações

The international dialling code for Ghana is +233. The outgoing code is 00 followed by the relevant country code (e.g. 0027 for South Africa). Accra's city code is 0302. The telephone system is relatively reliable, but most people use mobile phones. Telephone, fax and telex services are available in all main towns, and hotels. Most major hotels also have business centres, which provide secretarial and courier services. Internet cafes are on the increase throughout the country, but connection speeds are usually slow. There are several GSM cell phone operations across Ghana that have roaming agreements with most international networks, and phones can be rented in Accra.
