Many people who travel across the nation occasionally require a clean, safe location to relieve themselves, buy food, rest, and resume their adventures.
Business owners spotted this issue, so various rest areas have been created alongside major highways for visitors to use for a fee in order to solve it.
Linda Dor is one of the well-known rest areas along the Accra-Kumasi highway.
Although Linda Dor has locations in Accra, Koforidua, and other regions of Ghana, the Bunso junction location is particularly well-known.
