Benin has the hottest attractions in West Africa - the stilted fishing villages in the lagoon near Porto Novo. It's the kind of place that hides its best features. Be patient and observant to glimpse many of the cultural highlights of Benin. Beninese food is possibly the best in the region, and is widely available. Voodooism and fetishism are still widely practiced and many of the associated artifacts attract visitors.
