Benin Shopping and nightlife
Shopping in Benin
In Cotonou, along the marina, there are many stalls selling handicrafts and souvenirs. The Dan Tokpa market borders the Cotonou Lagoon and is stocked with many goods from Nigeria and elsewhere, as well as traditional medicines and artefacts. Crafts and local goods can be purchased in many towns and villages elsewhere, particularly in markets. Good buys include ritual masks, tapestries, elongated statues and pottery.
Mon-Sat 0900-1300 and 1600-1900.
Nightlife in Benin
Cotonou offers several nightclubs, but elsewhere there is little nightlife except during festivals.
