The District has a total land area of 635 square kilometres, which is 1.54 percent of the total land area of the Brong Ahafo Region. The District Strategic Location as the entry point into Brong Ahafo Region from southern Ghana puts it in a unique position to attract tourists if that sector could be well developed.
