Review from an Online forum on "Top Places in Akwa Ibom, Nigeria."

There is only one cinema in Uyo and that's Ibom Tropicana. Most hotels are in town, so irrespective of the hotel you stay in the cinema will be quite close as Uyo is a small place. Good hotel rates are from 5k upwards. I don't understand the shopping you are reffering to, clothes or what? There are boutiques almost everywhere. Food? I rarely eat out but the fast foods have okay meals and there are good local restaurants too. Your hotel's food might be expensive especially if you are on a tight budget.

Have fun on your honeymoon or vacation/holiday in the LAND OF PROMISE.
