Ghana: World’s biggest market ?

 

Kejetia market in Kumasi lends itself to superlatives. West Africa’s largest, with more than 10,000 traders selling every possible product. Probably the world’s most crowded market- full of narrow lanes where fierce “porter” aunties plough their way through every obstacle, physical or human, with shrill cries of “ago, ago” (make way !) seconds before they come crashing into you with their load.

Definitely the most overwhelming crowd experience we’ve ever had.
