Flights from Equatorial Guinea
Equatorial Guinea, officially the Republic of Equatorial Guinea, is a small country in Central Africa, bordering Cameroon and Gabon. It is divided into two parts, the mainland and the islands. It is one of the largest oil producing countries in Sub-Sahara, next to Angola and Nigeria. This former colony of Spanish Guinea is the only African state in which the official language is Spanish. Other official languages are French and Portuguese, and five other recognised regional languages. The country has an area of 28,000 square kilometres (11,000 square miles), with a population of 1.6 million people as of 2012. Its capital is Malabo and its largest city is Bata.
Where to go
Before flying out of Equatorial Guinea, a visit to its capital, Malabo, is certain to yield interesting results. Check out Bioko Biodiversity Protection Program for educational programs. It features a series of four backlit posters funded by a grant from the International Primate Protection League to illustrate the importance of controlling the bushmeat trade. Universidad Nacional de Guinea Ecuatorial, on the other hand, features original buildings that reflect a Spanish colonial architectural style. Feast on gastronomical delights like fried plantain and chicken, topped with picante and mayonnaise at Deme's Favorite Chicken Place; the best ribs in Malabo a Betty's BBQ/Casa Teodorita; and authentic Chinese dishes at Bantu.
Five hours from Malabo Airport is Casablanca, the largest city in Morocco. Some of the sites worth checking out in this modern city include the King Hassan II Mosque, the largest in the country and third largest in the world. It has the world’s tallest minaret and is one of the two main mosques in Morocco that is open to non-Muslims. There’s also the small traditional walled town of Old Medina, located north of Casablanca; Corniche, the neighbourhood on the ocean, and used to be a prosperous resort area and is now home to several western fast food chains; the Shrine of Sidi Abderrahman, which allows non-Muslims to explore its tiny, medina-like neighbourhood surrounding it; and Mahkama du Pacha, a Hispanic-Moorish building that consists of more than 60 ornate rooms with delicately carved wooden ceilings.
Roughly six to seven hours from Malabo Airport is Madrid, the capital and largest city Spain. It is teeming with art, heritage, and culture, and therefore attracts millions of visitors. Among its most famous landmarks and architecture are Puerta del Sol, located at the heart of the city, a hub for the local transit system, and flocked by locals and visitors, being a venue for festivals or political demonstrations; Plaza Mayor, the best known plaza in the city, surrounded with tourist shops, cafes and restaurants; Mercado de San Miguel, an indoor market that can be easily distinguished by its ornate iron posts; and Palacio Real, one of the biggest palaces in Europe. It serves as the Royal Palace and is perhaps one of the most emblematic and beautiful buildings in Madrid.
