Ashanti region of Ghana

Almost all of the cocoa in Ghana is grown in the Ashanti region - the main jobs are farming. The Ashanti region is also quite rich in gold.
The Ashanti region is the 3rd biggest region in Ghana, with an area of approx. 24,389 km2. Yet despite not being the biggest area, it has the biggest population in any area of Ghana - the most recent number is 4,415,554 people. The capital of the area is Kumasi, which is known as "The Garden City" because of its many types of flowers and plants. The Ashanti region is split into 21 districts.
