Questions without answers
I removed these questions from the article. what is the money value there? how is the system set up in Benin compared to America? what is the current exchange rate?. --Evan 19:07, 19 December 2006 (EST)
Travel info lost?
I'm not at all convinced that Benin needs region articles. At least not until we've started writing articles on tiny villages in the country. I'd like to merge content from the current articles (of which there really is none) back into this one under the regions heading. We could also subdivide the cities section by region. Thoughts? --Peter Talk 23:07, 6 January 2009 (EST)
I must disagree. Benin is a little larger than Bulgaria and roughly the same size as Pennsylvania (which has 7 regions). Since it lies perpendicular to the coast, that should be a clue that like other nearby countries, the landscape goes from coastal plains to forests to savanna. Unlike in neighboring Togo, there's no clear middle section and there's no dominating ethnicities across broad region, so simply dividing the country into north (4 northern provinces) & south (Collines southward) is the minimum that can be done. This roughly corresponds to the Muslim/Christian and savanna/forests divisions of the country. provinces mapAHeneen 03:54, 28 January 2010 (EST)
