Addis Ababa

Addis Ababa is the largest of Ethiopia’s cities and serves as the country’s capital. It is an excellent destination for business and leisure. More than 120 international missions and embassies are set up here, including the headquarters of the African Union and the UN Economic Commission for Africa, making Addis a hub for international diplomacy. The busiest airport in East Africa, Bole International Airport, connects the capital city to inter-Africa destinations and the world.

Addis Ababa has seen its fair share of turmoil in recent times, but it has risen above and now eagerly welcomes travelers with eager curiosity and friendly hospitality. Ethiopian cuisine, coffee, and culture dominate the itinerary of any traveler – whether they be there for the business or to take in the country’s 13 months of sunshine. The Ethiopian calendar is related to the country’s ancient culture, one that dates back to 3 million years ago. The Ethiopian National Museum is excellent for those looking to explore that culture and its history. Here can be seen a replica of Lucy, an early hominid, as well as artifacts that span thousands of years. A more local look at the culture can be had at the Addis Ababa Museum. Some historical religious sites worth exploring include the Lalibela and Anwar Mosque, the latter of which is found in the largest market of Africa – the Mercarto. From the side streets to the major sights, Addis Ababa hosts a range of attractions and activities that make for unique and memorable experiences.
