Getting Around Côte d'Ivoire
As with much of West Africa, the shared taxi is a common way to get around Côte d'Ivoire.
A railway links Abidjan with Bobo-Dioulasso and Ouagadougou, in Burkina Faso.
Although Abidjan is the largest city and one of the busiest ports in West Africa, it is not the capital of Côte d'Ivoire.
That honour was bestowed on the birthplace of Felix Houphouet-Boigny, the long serving president of Côte d'Ivoire (1960-93); by the president himself, in 1983.
If Yamoussoukro were not Felix Houphouet-Boigny's birthplace and chosen capital, it would still be in the middle of nowhere.
Grand plans were made for the small town in the savannah, with road grids laid and street lights erected.
Another one of the former president's personal follies was to build this massive church; in the style of the Vatican's St Peter's Basilica.
Separate quarters were built for the pope, who refused to visit unless money was spent on a hospital for the sick as well.
As well as being the transport hub of West Africa, Abidjan is where most of the diplomatic work is done.
Felix Houphouet Boigny (ABJ) connects Abidjan with over 35 destinations.
