Addis Ababa means ‘New Flower’. Emperor Menelik II ordered that his new capital be built here because it was malaria free, had fertile soil, water and wood for building. Today this is a metropolis of almost 4 million, Addis has it all. The great thing is that most prices for visitors are probably the cheapest of any Capital city in the world. You can do and see it all in this fascinating and busy city.
Please come and read my tips. There is a lot to look at. If you need any information about Addis Ababa, please email me and I and my local friends will get you the information.
All the best,
- Pros:THE ABSOLUTE CENTER OF ETHIOPIA
- Cons:TOO BIG ABD GETTING BIGGER, ITS A MESS
- In a nutshell:IF YOU WANT TO EXPERIENCE ETHIOPIA - YOU HAVE TO START HERE
I can highly recommend a visit and even a (by local prices) overpriced drink in the gardens. Forget about eating here.... more travel advice
Ethiopians are very observant of hygiene, especially when eating. The national dish is Injera with different dishes... more travel advice
