My city has that formal look. In the mornings, everybody wants to get to work on time. Though people are eager to make it to work on time as I said earlier, they exercise some patience. But for the people who drive the public transports, they’re always creating chaos. This causes more time to be wasted.

Tema is a city with a lot of energetic youths and beautiful places of residence. if you are considering moving to my city, then do well to visit our beautiful treasure Island in the eastern part of the city. Consider Tema to be the most beautiful city in the whole country.

As a result of the number of cars exceeding the number of roads made available by the government of Ghana in the state, the state is always overcrowded and hence, you’re left with no other choice but to hustle your way on the streets so you reach your destination on time.

Tema has one of Ghana’s two harbours. Recently the harbour was expanded to accommodate bigger ships. My city also has a free zones enclave where goods are manufactured mostly for export. Tema is one of the cities built by Ghana’s first president Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. Tema has an industrial area which houses a lot of companies like Nestle, Tema oil refinery, Valco and Alu Work just to mention a few.

Tema is one of the best places to live in my country. It has everything you will need to have a comfortable stay. The scenery here is also very beautiful, and we all know to live in a place boils down to the warmth of the people living there, and my city folks are just the best.

There are more flats, Schools, good roads, green plants and industries. Children in my City are very brilliant and good looking. Everyone goes about his/her daily routines without interfering in the issues of their neighbours unless he/she ‘s attention is needed. Most people are always indoors because they strictly want to avoid troubles.

Any person who wants to move Tema must be aware that the township is susceptible to floods in June. The rents are relatively low compared to other cities in the Country. Tema is the biggest city in Ghana with a mix of all the tribes and a superior infrastructural development.

Tema is a cosmopolitan city. And people from all walks of life come to work. Security is very tight. it is a place where there is much tourism. Prices of goods and services are not that expensive. The environment is very nice and great for everyone.

Tema is a beautiful place with some parts being quiet and other parts, busy. It has a lot of communities which stretches into other areas. There are a lot of eateries around. There are also marketplaces, hospitals, schools, churches, mosques, hotels and recreational centres but not many remarkable tourist site. There’s a place allocated for industries to operate. Good and accessible roads and traffic lights.

It is in Ghana. In West Africa. It is also the capital of Ghana. There are lots of fun activities and historical sites to be visited (like the seat of the presidency). Anyone visiting my city leaves with an excitement and loves to visit twice. Have fun.
