What to do in Addis Ababa : Tips, places, hotels and restaurants

Addis AbabaThe Capital of Ethiopia, it is also the highest town in Africa as it rises to over 2,300 metres of altitude. It therefore benefits from a pleasant climate except during the rainy season, June to September, when the roads are constantly muddy. The town has a population of around 4 million inhabitants. It possesses a certain number of monuments that are definitely worth a visit such as the equestrian statue of Menelik II, the statue of the Judean Lion, the Saint Trinity Cathedral, Saint George’s cathedral, and the Grand Mosque. As the city is fairly young there are no ancient ruins but you may wish to visit the national Museum where you can see the famous Lucy, you may also be interested in the Institute of Ethiopian Studies and the Ethnological Museum. Take a drive around the Entoto Hills and do visit Merkato (the Great Market) with its huge multitude of items, and unique ambiance, colours and aromas; it is one of the largest open air markets in the world. If you want to get out of the city then numerous excursions are available from the city to a variety of interesting places in the surrounding countryside.
