Are tired of commuting to the island every weekend all because you want to have fun? Do you stay on the mainland in Lagos and hardly go out because you are clueless about places to go? This is going to change.
The Lagoon divides Lagos into two parts; The island and the mainland. Three major bridges link the Lagos Island and Lagos mainland.
