Ghana

Kotoka International Airport (DGAA/ACC)

🇬🇭


Ghana is perhaps one of the most well known countries on the continent to have a culture that’s a fusion of European and African influences, and at the same time, preserving traditions to this very day. Nonetheless, in recent times, Ghana has been most well known for their exotic funerals, spreading worldwide with the fame for the coffin dancers becoming something of an internet culture.

Côte d’Ivoire

Félix-Houphouët-Boigny International Airport (DIAP/ABJ)

🇨🇮


Côte d’Ivoire, as the name suggests, is a country that has made a name for itself from the Ivory trade. Having since been made illegal, the name does serve as a reminder of the trade that ravaged animals of the region, as well as the cruelty that had seen the animals go through. Nonetheless, having since modernised their economy, cocoa beans has since taken over as their largest trade export.

Iran

Tehran Imam Khomeini International Airport (OIIE/IKA)

🇮🇷


At the heart of the once region conquering Persian Empire, Iran stands as one of the largest countries in the region, as well as the influence it has on other countries in the region. To the north, it borders countries such as Azerbaijan, Armenia and Turkmenistan, and towards the south, lines the coast of the Persian Gulf, and it only goes to show how large Iran really is. Not to mention, the various cultures and ethnic groups that co-exist within Iran makes it one of the most unique countries in the region.

Liberia

Roberts International Airport (GLRB/ROB)

🇱🇷


With one of the most well known Liberian being George Weah, a footballer who made a name for himself at clubs like AC Milan and Monaco, and now the 25h President of Liberia, it comes as no surprise that he has made an impact in his country through sports and politics, as well as his humanitarian aid for Liberia having since been a war-torn country, as well as having been through the Ebola epidemic and Covid-19 pandemic.

Sierra Leone owes it name to the Portuguese explorer, Pedro di Sintra, who named the place Serra Lyoa which means “Lion Mountains” in Portuguese. The country actively engages in the agriculture and mining industry, which was since focused on since the end a civil conflict.

Republlic of Guinea

Conakry International Airport (GUCY/CKY)

🇬🇳


The Republic of Guinea, like many countries in its vicinity, has recently experienced plenty of unrest in recent years. However, since the early 21st century, it has experienced plenty of progress in aspects such as increased life expectancy as well as a steadily growing economy. Despite plenty of issues in the country that result from misappropriation of government funding as well as tax evasion, the country is looking to progress as each year passes.

Aruba

Queen Beatrix International Airport (TNCA/AUA)

🇦🇼


Aruba is seen as a popular destination for those looking for an island getaway. With seas filled with natural life and shipwrecks of old, divers in the region will have plenty of underwater points of interest to visit. If water sports isn’t something that you’d fancy, golf is a popular sport with picturesque golf courses as well as coastal winds making it a challenge for everyone. Not to mention, if you’re looking for a relaxing end to a day, the Aruban Nightlife has clubs, bars, casinos and everything in between.

Guinea-Bissau

Osvaldo Vieira International Airport (GGOV/OXB)

🇬🇼


To those who knows about the flag of Guinea-Bissau and the flag of Ghana, you would realise that there is a striking similarity between the two. You may be surprised to find that this is intentional, with the struggle that the Ghanaians had to go through to earn their freedom, it was the main driving force for Guinea-Bissau’s liberation.

Gambia

Banjul International Airport (GBYD/BJL)

🇬🇲


Visiting the smallest non island country in the world, Gambia stretched about 500 kilometers inland, as well as about 30 to 40 kilometers wide on either side. However, despite its smallest size, it has one of the most dense population density in Africa. With the country mainly being formed around the river, most of the population live in rural villages along the river.

Réunion

Roland Garros Airport (FMEE/RUN)

🇷🇪


Réunion is an island to the east of Madagascar and west of Mauritius. Being a part of France, it also makes it a part of the EU, and therefore, is open to free travel to citizens of the European Union. However, with over 800 thousand people populating the island, about the same as those living on Mauritius; a country much larger neighbouring Réunion.

Mauritius

Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport (FIMP/MRU)

🇲🇺


Neighbouring the island of Réunion, Mauritius is often seen as a country that is looking to diversify its economy, in an effort to reduce reliance on its natural resources. With expansions in the last decade in the financial service sector, they are now looking to be a more popular destination for those looking for tax avoidance, as well as countries to set up shell companies in. Not only that, but relevant to the aviation and shipping industry, they are often seen as a viable country for registration as taxes are reduced compared to other countries.

Seychelles

Seychelles International Airport (FSIA/SEZ)

🇸🇨


Being a remote island in the western Indian Ocean, the Seychelles was once an island which was used as a hideout for pirates, where their treasures and steals were kept. Also on the island, is the smallest capital city in the world. Being small enough that you could easily walk around it within a day. Nonetheless, the island has since been the home to plenty of shell companies, as it imposes no taxes on corporations who do not do business within the territories of the country.

Madagascar

Ivato International Airport (FMMI/TNR)

🇲🇬


To the fourth largest island in the world, and one that took humans over 300,000 years to discover. Not only that, but given that humans were thought to have originated from the African continent, it comes as a surprise that the island was not discovered any sooner. Regardless, the large population places it ahead of countries such as Sri Lanka and Australia. Despite that, it unfortunately has been rated as one of the more unhappy places to be in the world, ranking the 14th least happy country in the world.

Curaçao

Curaçao International Airport (TNCC/CUR)

🇨🇼


Curaçao, being a constituent country of the Netherlands, takes plenty of queues from the Netherlands itself. Seen very clearly with its architecture, it looks like it was taken straight from the Netherlands. Apart from that, Curaçao is also best known for the Blue Curaçao drink, which is flavoured with a bitter orange laraha peel, which is commonly found on the island itself.

Mayotte

Dzaoudzi–Pamandzi International Airport (FMCZ/DMA)

🇾🇹


Mayotte comprises two of the southernmost islands of the Comoros archipelago. It lies on a volcanic range which forms violent hills and steep ridges along the coastline. Alongside that, the economy relies on the farming of cash crops like vanilla pods, coffee beans and coconuts, while the service sector makes up the remainder of the economy.

Comoros

Prince Said Ibrahim International Airport (FMCH/HAH)

🇰🇲


Sitting on the northwestern end of the Comoros archipelago, Comoros is an island formed by a volcanic range. Despite sharing the same archipelago as Mayotte, Comoros has repeatedly laid claim to the island as a part of it’s country. Although change is unlikely, as becoming a part of Comoros requires the support of the people, they maintain a friendly relation with France who considers Mayotte a region of France.

Australia

Adelaide Airport (YPAD/ADL)

🇦🇺


Australia is often one of the most favoured countries in the world to visit. Having personally been to Australia a handful of times, as well as having bought plenty of wine in Australia, I can safely say that they have some of the best wine anybody could buy. Not to mention, being a produced of over a trillion bottles of wine every year, Australia’s wine industry places it well in the top 10 largest wine producing countries in the world.
