Lagos is a great town to stay in! Public transportation is very easy to navigate (I’ve taken both bus and train) and the town is very walkable once you’re there! As a solo female I felt safe walking at all times of day, visitors and locals were all very welcoming, and it’s beautiful! Take advantage of the acitivities offered too!
