Onikan, Lagos Is The 3rd Coolest Neighborhood In The World

CNN has ranked Onikan in Lagos as the 3rd coolest neighbourhood in the world.
At last, Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial capital, has made the news for all the right reasons on the world stage.

CNN magazine publication, Time Out, has listed Onikan, a Lagos neighbourhood, as one of the coolest places to visit in the world.

Only Arroios in Lisbon, Portugal and Shimokitazawa in Tokyo, Japan, were ranked higher than Lagos by the global publication.

50 neighbourhoods around the world made the cut.

CNN writes that: “When you’re deciding where to spend your vacation, you might think about famous attractions or gorgeous natural wonders.

“But if you really want to get to know a city like a local, your best bet is to look for the neighbourhoods where they hang out, where the most interesting new restaurants, art galleries and coffee shops emerge.”

In its Onikan citation, the self-acclaimed ‘World News-Leader’ writes: “Nigeria’s biggest city is home to artists, writers, designers and Nollywood actors. You might spot some of them hanging out in cool Onikan, where “past, present and future collide effortlessly.”

“The central neighbourhood on the Lagos Lagoon is home to some of the city’s most important cultural offerings, including the Nigerian National Museum and Rele Gallery, which focuses on contemporary art.”
