FOUR VILLAGES INN HAS BEEN PROMOTING ADANWOMASE, KENTE VILLAGE FOR YEARS AND THE REVIEW ON THE BRADT UPDATE SITE (SEE PHILIP BRIGGS BLOG ROLL) ON NOVEMBER 5TH BELOW BACKS UP OUR OPINION.
At such a short distance away from Kumasi, this is a great village to visit! NOBODY hassles you while in town and the kente weaving tour is a must-see while in country (whether at Adanwomase or not is, I suppose, up to the reader). We got very reasonable souvenirs (Kente strips at 5-8GhC, coin purses for 3GhC, etc) and learned from our informative tour guide, Seth, all about the process. I would highly suggest it; the cost now being 5Ghc per person plus 50p for unlimited photos. Another strange thing: this town has garbage cans! In order to get there you actually want to alight at Nkwanta (not Ntonso like the map and book suggest). We aren’t sure whether the name got changed recently, but they dropped us in Nkwanta after we asked for Ntonso and it was the correct place… I believe it was somewhere around 40p per person for the taxi/trotro ride to and from the town.
AN AFTERTHOUGHT: BONWIRE IS HIGH HASSLE!
