10 Most Beautiful Cities in Nigeria

In total contrast to the way some ‘outsiders’ see African states, there are actually a lot of places in Africa you should see before you pass. In Nigeria, the reporters and media channels blow things out of proportion but come around and let’s show you something different. If you ever find yourself in Nigeria, you shouldn’t leave without visiting these ten cities or else, you just might have missed out on some beautiful places in ‘Naija’.

10. Warri, Delta State

Warri comes first for no particular reason but this place gets more attention and developmental focus than even Asaba (the state capital). Road networks are top notch and the constructions are very organized. Night life is not really okay, but it’s a beautiful place overall.


9. Calabar, Cross River State

This is one of the most lavished and garnished state capitals in Nigeria. It is even touted as the most beautiful city in Nigeria and it is ever springing out newer developments. The landscape is wow, and the organization  and security of these city is indeed top notch. Calabar also houses exquisite resorts and executive hotels.


8. Uyo, Akwa Ibom State

People in Uyo would never agree to Calabar being crowned as the most beautiful city in Nigeria, and reasonably so since the road network in Uyo is very planned out without potholes and with solar street lighting system. The landscape is very attractive and it houses some 3-5 star hotels. It also has a multi-billion naira ultra-modern stadium.

7. Owerri, Imo State

Owerrihouses tourist attractions like the Oguta Lake, Ada palm plantation, Mbari cultural and art centre amongst many others. The city is beautiful with good night life and lighting. The landscape is well laid out and the structures are an embellishment to attractive natural elements.


6. Enugu, Enugu State

Enugu’s development has not been stagnant like a few of its counterparts and it’s a very beautiful city with nice topography and attractive structures. The city and the state bear the same name since the developmental attention of the state is focused on Enugu.


5. Port Harcourt, Rivers State

For everyone with a love for aqua life and water fronts, this is one place in Nigeria you must visit. It is called the Garden City for a reason and it’s one of the richest regions in Nigeria. It houses various 2-3 star hotels, bubbly night life and security has greatly improved.

4. Kaduna, Kaduna State

Another city sharing name with its state and a must visit place for people who gets caught up with the culture of the north. Forget the insecurity news, Kaduna still lives a normal day-to-day life and you need to see for yourself to know how beautiful the city really is.

3. Akure, Ondo State

Probably the only carved out state to make the list. Akure is the capital of Ondo state one of the regions who have given nature a space to breathe. It houses various natural attractions, appreciable topography and it redevelopment has been something really noteworthy.


2. Lagos, Lagos State

Make no mistake, Ikeja is the capital of Lagos but talking about one of the smallest states in Nigeria would leave one wondering how it became possible for Lagos to embed such a fine blend between a hectic life and Cool serene life, between ghettoes and highbrow urban areas. Lagos is a beautiful mystery and the most popular city in West Africa.


1. Abuja, F.C.T

This list would be crap if the most pre-planned city is missing from it. FCT’s Abuja is an example of a world class capital state. With a grand master plan for what the city would (must) look like, international shopping centres and 3-5 star hotels, you definitely haven’t seen Nigeria’s beauty if you’ve not been to Abuja.

  3. I stand to say no to every submission on best city in Nigeria. Not until everyone here go round the country everybody will think his/her state capital is the best. Therefore, fix a date,an airport to meet, food enough for the tour, sure accommodation wherever we go then let us go round Nigeria and come back with results.
