Make the most of your Cotonou Expat Life
The City on the mouth of the "River of Death" offers an exciting intercultural experience for expats, starting with cultural highlights, like the lagoon of Cotonou, dug by the French in 1855,, the folkloristic festivities on the occasion of Benin’s the Vodun public holiday on January 10, up to getting a taste of traditional kuli-kuli. The InterNations community helps you as an Cotonou expat to enjoy your expat stay in Benin to the fullest. Our members have already come across many of the questions you’ll have when starting your expatriate life in Cotonou and kindly offer you their assistance, from ʺHow do I cope with the Harmattan sandstorms?ʺ up to ʺWhich products should I buy fresh in the local markets?ʺ.
