Not the best place of Abidjan, but if you do business there, you ll have to go. Some restaurants, many buildings, can be interesting to visit quickly.

The plateau does not offer touristic attractions except for the cathedral which is really worth visiting.Most restaurants are closed in the evening or during the week, so social life on the plateau is very limited.

The Plateau is Abidjan's beating heart. It's the business area but with plenty of good quality residences. It's a great place to stay when visiting Abidjan
