Doual'Art is an art gallery located in the heart of Douala (in Bonanjo, le Plateau Joss). It is very clean, and showcases some of the work done by diverse up-and-coming Cameroonian artists. It has a nice cafe and a nice Terrace for relaxation. It is very good, especially given that it is in the heart of the old city near all the great historic landmarks of the city, such as the post office, the justice palace, the presidential palace, the slave chains, the Mandessi Bell house, the old German maritime headquarters, King Bell's house, the port, and colonial administrative buildings. The personnel of the gallery is very kind, and you learn so much all the time.

My group of 20 visited this excellent museum and thoroughly enjoyed learning about the history of Douala. The guide was very knowledgable and answered all of our questions. The museum has 3 or 4 floors and a 3D ride. I highly recommend you visit when you are in the city.

The Marche des Fleurs is definitely worth stopping at. Street side flower vendors selling a variety of cut flowers and arrangements. Less hectic than the adjacent Marche Artisanal which probably has more tourist appeal. Haggle fiercely if you do go shopping - the flowers are lovely.

Douala has not many interesting sights to offer. This Cathedral is supposed to be one of them. Both the exterior and interior are rather plain. Nevertheless, it is a moving site to see the people praying. There are two shops in front if the church, selling some basic religious items.

It has been renovated so it's new and it looks nice. The car washers at the side don't make the place nice and it's difficult to even see that there's something of great history there. I was able to take pictures though and got wet by the Fountain. Lol

This is a great place to go to before or after a meal. They have one of the best selections of single malts in Cameroon! Cigar selection was decent. Was looking for a Highland Park 18. Not available, but the barman gave us HIghland Park 12 - very liberal pour! Great place to hangout.

This is just a statue, there is nothing to see. You just go here and see if you would like, but it is nothing special or impressive, in my opinion not even attractive.

Fun Center is the first an only Bowling Center in Cameroon. It includes Bowling, Restaurant and many other games machines such like Air Hockey, Dancing stage, Basket Ball arcade, Boxe Arcade, Racing arcade, Snooker, Baby foot, kiddies rides etc... The restaurant is a mix between fast food and gourmet dishes. Fun Center is open everyday between 11:00 and 24:00.
Had a couple of drinks, & snacks & couple of games..but the bill came at least 8-10k extra with no billing.. Just said that that's how it is. Overall.. It was nice, barring the ripoff..
