6 best airport hotels in Nigeria

Written by

Airport hotels are strategically placed properties and are among the best options for anyone looking to catch a flight or make a quick trip. A stay near the airport typically means a pick for convenience sake and for many a weary or stranded traveler, the airport hotel is often a dubious notion at best, as generally, the airport hotel is often regarded as an austere torment for the most transient of travelers -a wallet draining means-to-an-end for travelers with canceled flights or a series of corporate group meetings.

Fortunately, there have been improvements over the years and newer transit hotels with enhanced technology and business services, eye-catching style, and amenities previously seen only at upscale resort properties are now emerging.

Almost every frequent traveler would like to believe they are 'smart' about travelling, but the truth is, becoming a smart traveler is not determined by how often you go on the road or how much money you save on trips, rather it is determined how much you know about traveling in the shrewdest, most stylish way possible.

Written by

STARS of the Nigerian entertainment industry, especially those in the movie and music segments, and other invited foreign stars will be hosted by the Ebonyi State Government tomorrow, according to the Committee on Culture and Tourism.
Those expected include Patoranking, Splash, Sinach, Tekno, Cha Cha Ekeh, Angela Okorie, Grace Amah, Andy Chukwu, Chita Agwu, Tracy and Treasure Daniels, among others.
Chairman of the committee, Dr. Jerry Uhuo, told the media that the event is being packaged to showcase to the world the state’s hidden potentials, using the entertainment industry as the driving force.
He noted that Ebonyi has great, hidden potentials that could boost its Internally Generated Revenue and end overdependence on crude oil if harnessed, adding: “If we had harnessed these kind of potentials, we wouldn’t have been talking about crude oil.
What we have is enough to give Ebonyi what it needs to develop. “We took time, as a committee, to tour over 40 tourist centres in Ebonyi and found that we have enough potentials to develop the state.

How adventurous are we?

Written by

I RECENTLY read a research document compiled by Dirty Boots, an adventure tourism publication in which we usually advertise.

The results of its survey has proved to be interesting reading in that the adventure tourism industry, with a market size of about some 11 million adventurers, is projected to generate some R5 billion into South Africa’s tourism economy this year.

About 45% of our international visitors will indulge in one or other adventure activity which supports our approach to glean international visitors at expositions like Das Boot in Germany which hosts about 230 000 attendees each January.

Adventure tourism locks in almost equal participation of men and women who are on average within the 35-40 age bands. One assumes that in most cases there are young families associated with this cohort and this is ideal for our district which can offer adventure and family experiences.

The highest income-generating activities were suggested as shark cage diving, zipline tours, boat excursions, tandem skydiving and boat based whale watching most of which is offered here within our destination.

This niche form of tourism in South Africa employs about 14 000 full-time and 11 000 part-time personnel so it is clear that adventure activities are significant contributors towards sustaining livelihoods in often non urban areas.

Ways To Survive A Trip Where No One Speaks English

Written by

English is widely considered the universal language of travel, and so, many travelers often assume everyone they meet should speak some level of English. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. While staff at the airport, hotels and some restaurants in many cities might know a few words of English (as they often deal with visitors), the locals who rarely encounter foreigners may not speak any English at all.

If you are stuck in a city where no one speaks a language you understand, and you have no clue on how to survive, Jovago.com, presents 5 tips on how to help you communicate anyways.

Do not panic
While language difficulties can be frustrating and even scary sometimes, stay optimistic!  Fretting will only draw attention and encourage swindlers to take advantage of you. Employ logic and maintain a confident composure. No matter how dire your situation, you will cross the hurdle eventually.
Try gestures
Body language plays a huge role in communication. Try hand gestures and miming as they are almost universally understood.
You may be worried about looking silly, but as long as you get the results you want, this should be the least of your concerns. Simple hand gestures, miming, drawing and pointing go a long way towards breaking through any language barrier.
You however need to be careful with your gesticulations as seemingly innocent gestures in your own country could prove offensive elsewhere in the world. To play safe, it's wise to read up on taboos and hand gestures before using them.

Lagos has a way of keeping you super busy. Very often, you are caught  between weaving through traffic that never lets up and meeting deadlines at school or work.

If you need help with ideas on how and where to meet ' The One" in Lagos, Jovago.com, Africa's No. 1 online hotel booking site has the best spots.
Shoprite is the most popular shopping center in the city with locations in key areas of the metropolis; providing a surprising variety of opportunities to meet members of the opposite sex. Single men and women in Lagos prefer a rush in to pick needed groceries after work, or in the morning on weekends. Chances are you'll find someone who lives in your neighbor or likes the same flavours of spices or same cereal you do.
The good thing about Shoprite is that all its outlets are situated in malls with eateries next door. If things are going well, you can say "Hey, listen, I feel like going to grab a sharwarma at the food court, Come with me." Instant dates change the dynamic as you get a chance to flirt, banter and get that number.
