I envy you!!! anyway, why not Bahir Dar? In Addis, there is a club know as " Ye Mesafent bet" in Bole. It is a nice night club with a nice band and show. I enjoyed dinning at the Millenium Restaurant. They have good food and entertainment. Awassa is nice for two or three days. I don't know how deep your pocket is, but I stayed at Chambalala hotel. It was $17 USD a night. Queen bed, TV, refrigerator and decent bathroom. You might want to visit Sodore if you like to horse ride for about $2.00USD for one hour, but I didn't go in the pool. Find "Azmari Bet" especially in Addis.....it is always fun.Hey guys, I need tips.
I have a month to spend in Ethiopia, traveling with a couple of friends. We will start the trip with doing the obligatory "relatives-tour" in Addis for a couple of days, but we don't want to "waste" to much time in the city.
We talked about heading North, but I want to do that trip with my parents some day (the religious and historical sites).
The South seem more adventurous. We will probably hire a driver and a jeep and go down to Hawassa, passing Adama and Shashemene. I know that the Bale national park is nearby. We might make it all the way down to Arba Minch if we have enough time.
Are there any other "must-see" places in the area??
Also, any tips about Addis Ababa (good restaurants, night clubs, view points, etc) is appreciated as well!
Please bring tones of picture and share them with us. Enjoy you stay.
