If you are like me that love calm, serene places,then you would probably like Uyo too.

A lot of people visit Owerri because of some of it's tourist attraction like the Oguta Lake, Ada palm plantation, Mbari cultural and art centre Etc

Calabar used to be one of the top most beautiful state in Nigeria but for some years now it's ranking has dropped. 

Calabar became one of the most beautiful cities in Nigeria that attracted tourists from the whole world when Donald Duke was the governor. 

Nevertheless the state which claims to be the ''Nations Paradise'' is still one of the most beautiful states in Nigeria. In Calabar you will be find tourist spots like the marina resort and tinapa while the popular Obudu cattle ranch is a 7 - 8 hours drive from Calabar.

I still don't know why this state is called the Garden City,and I will still like to know because I didn't see any Gardens since ive been visiting this city,nevertheless Port Harcourt is one of the most beautiful cities in Nigeria with 3 star hotels,good roads and a lively night life. 

This state is also home to some of the big multinational companies in Nigeria,the only thing I don't like about this city is it's regular traffic and congestion.
