Cheap flights to Lagos take you to one of the world's fastest growing cities. With a population that is expected to top 20 million by 2010, Lagos is a hive of activity. From street traders to small-scale manufacturing and large companies, this is a city driven by business.

Lagos is a sprawling city built along the coast and on islands around a series of lagoons with interconnecting bridges. The main commercial centre is on Lagos Island, whilst the island of Ikoyi is where much of the expatriate community resides.

Victoria Island has a strong expatriate community as well as financial and commercial businesses. Further out lies the suburb of Ikeja where much of the city's manufacturing is based.

Visiting Lagos can be a difficult experience; it is still largely a cash economy and crime including fraud and armed robbery is not uncommon. Travellers to Lagos should seek advice from the Foreign Office before travelling.
