The mainland has museums, airports, universities and basically all of the important buildings of town. That again tells us how well planned the town is. Lagos Island is the hub of all the business activities. Sky scrapers and tall buildings having the commercial centers are its main features. Interestingly, all these buildings are in the Central Business District planned especially for commercial needs. On the opposite side of Lagos Island, residential areas are located with active nightlife in the city. Restaurants, hotels, parks, clubs and plenty of other recreational places are also part of this side of the island.
