Originally a port city, Lagos is actually a conurbation--a merging of multiple cities and towns due to urban and industrial development. If you want to fully acquaint yourself with the local color and talent of the largest city in Nigeria, you should start with a Lagos car rental and make trip to the Jankara Market or the Lekki Market. You'll find endless fascinating trinkets at either market, including beads, tie-dyed fabrics, pottery, herbs, and traditional medicines. If you are really good at haggling, you might end up with beautiful mementos at cheap prices!
If you plan to stay in Lagos for a few days, hotels in Lagos city center are the ideal places to stay. If you've arranged a Lagos rental car, the hotels are only a 10-mile drive from the international airport. Places of historical import include the National Museum and Freedom Park. The famous Nok terracotta and Benin brass art occupies the pride of the place in the National Museum, but keep in mind that cameras are not allowed. The Freedom Park was once a prison that witnessed colonial oppression. While the prison building itself is still there, it is now a buzzing cultural center. The transformation from a place to restrain to a place for freedom of expression is an interesting paradox. If you are in the mood for viewing local wetland wildlife, drive down to the Lekki Conservation Centre. For a taste of contemporary art in Nigeria, you can visit the African Artists' Foundation.
