The capes Coast and Elmina castles, the Manhyia palace, the village stilts, the Larabanga mosques, and the Mole and Kakum national park.
To improve the number of tourists visiting Ghana, the authorities have regulated the fees charges at these sites.

Affordability increases the income, attracts a large number of foreign tourists and even motivates local visitors such as school students and pupils to visit the sites frequently.
Offering Sufficient Modern Facilities near the tourists’ sites.
Before travelling for a holiday to a particular country, most tourists consider the facilities of that nation. To ensure that they fully relax, enjoy and have a great time during their visit, tourists check the facilities of that country first. Sufficient modern facilities in Ghana such as electricity, good roads, good restaurants, and comfortable accommodations are key factors contributing to improved tourism.

Currently, there are various ways of promoting tourist attractions, such as writing articles and blogs and social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, youtube, and Twitter. Besides, creating websites whose content focus on Ghanaian tourism is another excellent method.

Neglecting Monuments and other tourist’s sites may result in the reduction of tourists visiting Ghana. To ensure the number increases each time, the tourism sector renovates the broken monuments and tourist’s spots.

Fitting the sides with quality facilities such as good roads, restaurants, swimming pools and fast internet gives a better picture to all tourists.

Including tourism in the education curriculum improves the desire of students to visit the tourist’s attraction sites. Engaging the ministry of Education to include trips each term may boost the tourism sector.
