Before you dash off to Dakar on a whim, take some time to learn a few things about it.
Dakar is the national capital city of Senegal. To help get you oriented, it lies 110 miles (177 kilometers) to the west of Touba, a notable city.
Visitors to this part of Senegal rub shoulders with about 2,500,000 people.
It's not every day you take off on vacation, so why not treat yourself to some luxury? The Terrou-Bi Beach & Casino Resort (Corniche ouest Boulevard) and the Radisson Blu Hotel, Dakar Sea Plaza (Route De La Corniche Ouest) are some of the top upmarket properties here. If you're the sort of wanderer who prefers to spend all their time out exploring, a deluxe suite may not be your style. Some fantastic budget options are the Hotel Lagon (Route de la Corniche Est) and the Hôtel Le Djoloff (7 rue Nani).
