Land of Upright People
Landlocked Burkina Faso offers a welcoming atmosphere, varied landscape, and rich cultural heritage. One of the poorest countries in the world, the country features largely undeveloped towns boasting lively music scenes and interesting markets filled with stalls selling handcrafted goods. Tourism in Burkina Faso remains a struggling industry, and with a largely undeveloped infrastructure, most travelers stick to the big cities and arrange short day trips into the wilder areas. The natural areas of the country remain known more for their topography than wildlife, with grassy sloping hills, Precambrian massifs, and rugged sandstone peaks dominating the terrain.
