Succumb to the all-consuming rhythm of Africa's largest metropolis and discover one of the world's most multi-faceted cities brimming with cultural curiosities, and some of the best music, art and literature to be found annywhere. Exciting developments are effecting the megacity from droves of diaspora Nigerians returning home to a population bursting at the seams. Most of the best bars, restaurants, galleries, hotels and boutiques are on Victoria Island.

For souvenirs, visit Lekki Market or try Quintessence (Suite C6, Falomo Shopping Center, Awolowo Road, Ikoyi). Head to Palms Shopping Mall for restaurants, a supermarket and international brands (BIS Way, Lekki, Lagos. 234-127-144-913).

Lagos is home to a lot of good restaurants. Reeds is recomended for exemplary Thai food (190 Awolowo Road, Ikoyi, +234-271-5593). Pick up a copy of Time Out Nigeria available at Quintessence gallery (address above) and bookshops. If its authentic you're looking for try the suya at Ikoyi Hotel (Kingsway Road, Ikoyi).

Eko Hotel and Suites is a self-contained expat hub (, +234-1-262-460-019). The Sofitel Lagos in Ikoyi is equally high-end (Bankole Oki Road, Ikoyi, +234-1-461-540-922) as is the Federal Palace Hotel (26 Ahmadu Bello Way, Victoria Island, 1-262-3116).
Of the boutique hotels, Bogobiri Guesthouse is a favourite (9 Maitama Sule, Southwest Ikoyi, 1-270-7437).
