Kumasi is the main city of Ashanti-Kwahu region, located in south-central Ghana.

It is considered the home of the Ashanti King (including the current titleholder), and is widely regarded as the cultural center of Ghana.

The area is also home to a UNESCO World Heritage Site — a group of traditional Asante buildings, including ten shrines/fetish houses, situated mainly northeast of Kumasi and in Patakro, to the south.

Arranged around courtyards, the buildings are especially known for the unique decorative bas-reliefs on their walls that depict a wide variety of motifs.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.

Many have distinctive decorative features, including spiral and arabesque details with representations of animals, birds and plants, linked to traditional “Adinkra” symbols.
