If you are in Los Angeles and looking for an adventurous getaway, Lagos is the perfect destination. Located in Southwest Nigeria in the Gulf of Guinea, off of the Atlantic coastline, Lagos is known for its shopping, music and vibrant nightlife. When you fly from Los Angeles to Lagos, your flight will last 16 to 20 hours with a layover somewhere in Europe. The Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is located just 16 miles outside of downtown LA and is easily accessed by taxi, bus or car. Once in Lagos, you will feel the resonating energy of the largest and second fastest growing city in Africa.
Lagos' situation on the Gulf of Guinea gives it a number of popular beaches where visitors enjoy spending time. Popular beaches include Lagos Bar Beach and the man made Tarkwa Bay. Both are great for swimming and picnics. Lighthouse Beach is also popular and well-known for its over 100-year old lighthouse that directs ships to the harbor. Other popular attractions include the National Museum of Nigeria, the Nike Art Gallery and the array of markets within the city.
Once you arrive at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (LOS), you will be about 30 minutes north of the center of Lagos, which you can easily get to by taking a taxi from the airport. Taxis are generally the most efficient and safe way to get around town as the roads can be confusing and traffic is very heavy. Lagos tends to be very rainy from April through July and October through November. Outside of this, the weather is relatively dry.
Unfortunately, you won't find any direct flights from Los Angeles to Lagos. If you're flying from Los Angeles, CA (LAX-Los Angeles Intl.) to Lagos (LOS-Murtala Muhammed Intl.), you'll have to change planes. Delta Air Lines, KLM and Air France service this route with just one stopover. Use the break to stretch those legs and get something to eat.
With a minimum flight duration of 15 hours and 24 minutes, it's a wise idea to be as comfortable as you can. Collected quite a few air points? Think about using them to upgrade to a seat with more legroom on your Los Angeles to Lagos journey.
