“I would highly suggest it; the cost now being 5Ghc per person plus 50p for unlimited photos. Another strange thing: this town has garbage cans! In order to get there you actually want to alight at Nkwanta (not Ntonso like the map and book suggest). We aren’t sure whether the name got changed recently, but they dropped us in Nkwanta after we asked for Ntonso and it was the correct place… I believe it was somewhere around 40p per person for the taxi/trotro ride to and from the town”
“At such a short distance away from Kumasi, this is a great village to visit! NOBODY hassles you while in town and the kente weaving tour is a must-see while in country (whether at Adanwomase or not is, I suppose, up to the reader). We got very reasonable souvenirs (Kente strips at 5-8GhC, coin purses for 3GhC, etc) and learned from our informative tour guide, Seth, all about the process”
” It was an easy walk to the Visitor’s Centre because of the signboards directing me. It was probably one of the most straightforward trips I have made, without the need for asking anyone for directions. The guide explained to me that this was due to the community based ecotourism which was implemented in the village and the people were taught how to act towards tourists and not to harass them.

Kente is worn not only for its eye- catching designs but also for its symbolic significance. There are over 300 patterns, each with its own name and […]
Traditionally, Until the last chief Nana Fosu Antwi Ababio came to power in 1964, Adanwomase was a subject of the Odakro Agya stool. However, Nana Opoku Ware 2, the previous Ashanti King, raised Adanwomase’s chieftaincy level, allowing it self – governance and right to use a palanquin to carry the chief.
Kufuor’s successful administration in the country and internationally was what encouraged them to design the special Kente cloth in his honour as their forefathers had done for Kwame Nkrumah a similar ceremony.
