The City is the capital of the State and that it is very close to River Niger bridge which actually stands as a link from the western region of Nigeria and the eastern region. More so, the City is known for her wealth of mineral resources, such as petroleum.

It is a quiet and serene environment. With people ranging from different socioeconomic background. The supply of electricity and portable water is constant. The cost of obtaining houses is limited. The roads are of good quality. The climate is well suited for any one. Health facilities are always available. The security condition is well taken care of by the government agency.

Asaba is the capital of Delta State. It is in a valley as you come down from Issele Azagba. It is a city that borders the River Niger. It is the headquarters of Oshimili south local government area. The major road in the city is Nnebisi road that runs from Cable point to Federal Medical Centre, Asaba.

Asaba is a calm city, a little sedate. It is a beautiful place with well organised landscape. Everything that would make life easy and fun is available: malls, mega stores, fresh produce markets, restaurants, spas, banks, cinemas, bars, night clubs… whatever you could think of. The downside, however, is that it is an expensive city.

Asaba is a peaceful and quiet town. It has lots of hotels probably for those looking to have fun. It is the capital of Delta State, and an heterogeneous community. Asaba is home to the Governor of the State. It is not an industrial city but it has a very big market where people from nearby towns come to buy things. And finally Asaba happens to be the boundary between Delta State and Anambra State.

Asaba is a beautiful city filled with hotels. Residents are mostly civil servants, bankers, artisans and entrepreneurs. There is one large market and smaller markets where foodstuffs are sold. Asaba is a very quiet town. It’s the perfect place for a holiday. At night, the city comes alive with barbeque shops. Traffic is minimal and life is lived at a slow pace.

1. It’s a major turn-up place: the good people of Asaba can certainly turn up. Boasting several standard hotels and bars, it’s not uncommon to stroll into a joint in Asaba on a weekday and find it swinging with activity. If you have a fun weekend in mind, Asaba can fit the bill.
2. They’ve got good food (pepper soup anyone?): With River Niger just down the road, Asaba is not lacking in great seafood, so head on here for an assortment of very tasty seafood and lip smacking pepper soup.
3. It’s got gorgeous people: It’s a place that’s brimming with gorgeous folks. We certainly can’t complain.
4. It’s Nollywood’s de facto capital: A good majority of Nigerian movies are shot in Asaba and if you’re a Nollywood movie fan then it’s worth a shot for a chance to spot your favourite movie star.
