Is this going to be my first Christmas in Lagos? No! But it is going to be my first Christmas in Lagos as an adult! There's a whole lot of difference. As a child Christmas was about what your parents, uncles, aunts, big cousins e.t.c could do for you-it was dependent on them! As an adult, you're OYO: On Your Own! I wouldn't claim to know all the hot spots in Lagos, but I can recommend places and activities, and you can recommend too by leaving your comments!
  • LEKKI LEISURE LAKE - Lekki lake is great for physical activities like Jet Skiing, I loved it the last time I was there and I believe you can make a day out of this. See the REVIEW HERE
  • LEKKI CONSERVATIVE - If you're interested in nature, this place is definitely for you. The last time I went there people were camping out. How about you take your family out and pack a picnic? It will be something different. See the REVIEW HERE

  • TERRAKULTURE - There should be some plays showing this season, the last one I saw was London Life Lagos Living and it was so much fun- hilarity! Maybe you should see a stage play? 
  • COCONUT BEACH - The Coconut Beach in Badagry is a beautiful beach in the coastal town of Badagry, West of Lagos. The beach is attractive set in an area surrounded by coconut trees! See the beautiful scenery below.
  • RADISSON BLU - I love their Buffet and they do have variety in their menu so if you're looking for an all you can eat, oya check them out! see the REVIEW HERE
