You can literally find everything you need on Oxford Street, for a negotiable price. It can become overwhelming, yet exhilarating while shopping here. It is a very safe area, while lots of shops, restaurants and bars.

Accra is safe... but beware of walking at night from the open gulleys, sewers and holes in the road. OSU and Oxford St is ok... some nice hotels and restaurants in the back streets... with the galleys, sewers etc
