Niger – Kingdom in the SandLocated in the Midwest of Africa, the Republic of Niger has the majority of its territory being the Sahara, and possesses abundant tourism resources. Greben Hill is the highest point in Niger; the National Museum of Niger, composed of milky exhibition rooms, is near the mountain and by the river, and scattered on the hillside with beautiful scenery, under which there is the beautiful Niger River; W National Park cultivates the hoofed animals with the largest group in West Africa. The combination of beautiful natural scenery and abundant human landscape makes the country with less development become a good choice for tourism. Why not take your UnionPay cards (card number starting with 62) to visit Niger prior to others.
