I've been several times to the green ranch and it's definitely one of my favorite places in Ghana. The green ranch is located at the lakeshore of lake bosumtwe with a stunning view from it's beautiful Terrace over the lake. The rooms are nicely decorated and very clean. The staff and especially Elodie, the owner of the place, is very kind, helpful and cares a lot about her guests. In addition to that you can do horse riding, canoeing on the lake and enjoy the tasty vegetarian and vegan food and the calm surrounding.
Thanks for all the pleasant stays at your place!

I visited the Manhyia Palace Museum, it was very educational starts out with sitting and viewing a video of the history of the Ashanti then you are guided through several rooms in the Palace with original artifacts. There is a gift shop to purchase souvenirs once the tour ends. The new palace is right next door, it happened to be a festival that Sunday where the Ashanti king comes out in an elaborate parade...thoroughly enjoyed.

This is supposedly one of the largest markets on the continent.
one the largest open-air market in West Africa, with over five thousand traders daily, you can find anything in this market for very reasonable price. must see location in the market is there the African print fabric line where you can find some unique garment for a good deal, I will also like to recommend the Kente shop line is also another place for one to purchase some affordable cost. if you a big collector of African handmade bead jewelry there bead line is also not far from there fabric line. You can also check the herbal medicine line on the railroad section of the market. although food product is the must dominant. Its very interesting market for any visit in Kumasi to check it out if you have the chance to

Ben took myself and two friends all around Kumasi. We even went to Bonwire to see the kente weaving in the morning. It made seeing the city so easy. It was especially great to have a local show us the market! Well worth your time and money.

We arrived on a Sunday and like almost everything else in Ghana, it was closed. However, a friendly security guide took us around the complex and gave us a history lesson. We couldn't go inside many of the buildings but it was still a nice visit.

Unique and fragile Ashanti houses were constructed of mud and covered with interesting decorations.
We visited the Palace and grounds the day before the Queen Mother's funeral. The museum is a bit dark and long in the tooth, but the actual materials -- clothing, portraits of Asante leaders, memorabilia, furniture including thrones gives one a fuller understanding of how important this powerful tribe is in the history of Ghana and west Africa. A must see for visitors to Kumasi.

The church building was picturesque, lower level completely packed, but the mahogany balcony provided a great view of the congregation and the pulpit. During the collection of tithes, the entire congregation processed to the altar dancing and singing to Ghanian music and drums. Everyone beautifully dressed, notably the elder men in traditional Kente, the women in western fashions and traditional dress also. Stirring sermon, great choir, "Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth is Mr. Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great king.
Ps. 48:2. A joyful, spiritual blessing for me, coming from America.

The men of the adinkra craftsmen Ntonso village are incredible. I visited here on a SUNDAY - when they were closed. The young guys came and opened the shop up for me. They laid out all of their cloths and even the bar and fire for me to stamp my own. I purchased several pieces of hand-stamped adinkra cloths. Ghanaians are truly hospitable and these guys truly exemplified that.
