Football isn’t your thing? Don’t worry — there are many more sporting events to take in; you can golf at Golfteq, learn to dance at Your Spa and Fitness Dance Club, or get in a game of paintball at Rapid Paintball Arena or Empire Sport Paintball.

Now that you have learned some sporting options, now it’s time for some leisure activities. Maybe you are looking for a relaxing night in, or the weather turns out to be not so favorable. Don’t worry, there are options for that, too. Consider ordering room service, lounging by the pool or watching some entertaining moments online. Let’s face it — most people don’t go on vacation only to play sports or constantly be on the go. They are also looking for relaxation and leisurely activities.

There are also many amazing restaurants, which can be a great way to relax and enjoy the company you are with. Lagos offers a range of options for eating out: BBQ, burger and grill, coffee shops, pizza, seafood, Japanese, Italian, fast food, bakeries and so much more! A few recommendations are: Bungalow Restaurant, which offers cuisine from around the world that will satisfy many different taste buds. Bistro 7 is located in Lagos Victoria Island.

This is a great place to get breakfast or brunch; it has very fresh and local food. Of course, you’ll need some dessert, so look to visiting Yogurt Frenzy, which has the best frozen yogurt in Lagos.

As you can see, there is more than enough to do when visiting Nigeria.

No matter your interests or your taste in food, there is bound to be something to satisfy your wants and needs. Enjoy your trip planning and, of course, your visit to Nigeria.
