Ghana’s climate is tropical, with hot temperatures all year round, ranging between 22 °C and
35 °C. There are two main seasons, with the rainy season occurring in summer and the dry
season (Harmattan) in winter, mainly due to the African Monsoon winds.
A moderate dress code is highly recommended, especially in busy areas and public places.
It is considered courteous to welcome foreigners with a warm smile and greet elderly people.
However, greeting with one’s left hand is often regarded as improper.
