in Lagos…Is This Really Possible?

Speaking from first-hand experience, I can
easily tell you that Lagos is not for the faint of heart. Lagos life is a
perpetual struggle, from waking up early to beat traffic (and still getting
stuck in traffic anyway), to the heat or torrential rainfall, to the lack of
power and water.

All these struggles the average Lagosian goes through makes it
hard for people to relax- in fact, the average Lagosian goes around angry and
tensed up, just waiting for someone to get in their way and annoy them.  A lot of my colleagues and friends say it’s
virtually impossible for them to relax, except they take their leave outside
Lagos, preferably Abuja or Ibadan. So, is it really possible for one to get rid
of all the pent-up stress of the week without leaving Lagos? The fact is that
it actually is possible if you know where
to go. Lagos has some
really beautiful spots where you can just sit and marvel at the beauty of Nature,
without the intrusion of the rush that is usually attributed to Lagos.

My top
three favorite spots are:

1. Lekki
Conservation Centre
Lekki Conservation CentreLekki Conservation Centre2
This is a conservation center
started to protect the dwindling coastal mangrove forest and animals. Here you
can observe a wide variety of birds, flora and fauna as well as a man-made tree
house for nature lovers to have a 360-degree
view of the centre. If this place doesn’t provide you with inner peace, then
what will?

2. Coconut
Beach, Badagry

Of all the beautiful beaches in
Badagry, the Coconut Beach is my favourite. 
Apart from the clean sand and surf, as well as the numerous coconut
trees that dot the landscape,it remains one of my top spots because unlike
other commercial beaches, it doesn’t get overcrowded and noisy. You can check
into hotels around it
and really relax the way you want to.

For the people who appreciate the
value of art, Nike art Gallery is an oasis. Nike Art Gallery is a platform
where artists and craftspeople from all works of life portray their works and
educate the general public on everything art. Enter this gallery and lose
yourself in the fascinating worlds of other people, expressed through artwork.

So you see, relaxation isn’t all that
difficult in the Centre of Excellence, you just have to know where to go.
Enjoyment in Lagos
isn’t always about clubs, lounges and malls; try something different today and
thank me later.
