At the moment there's an outbreak of Ebola in Guinee, Sierra Leone and Liberia. More info: http://diplomatie.belgium.be/en/services/travelling_abroad/
In Conakry, you will be immediately immersed in an African atmosphere, with men playing music on traditional instruments and women and children dancing.
Conakry, the capital of Guinea, is situated on a peninsula with a view of the clear blue sea and has a number of important sites. A visit to the National Museum to see its extensive collection of masks, statues and musical instruments is certainly a must. You should also take a look at the Palace of the OAU, which was intended for meetings of the Organisation of African Unity, but is now used as offices by the current President.
Illes de Los, a chain of islands, is very popular with tourists and the local people as a place to relax, especially on Sundays and holidays. Another very useful tip is not to take photographs without permission in Conakry, as this might get you arrested.
