Why Everyone Should Visit Ethiopia

Ethiopia is an Aladdin’s cave of surprises and miracles. It hosts the ancient ruins of Aksum; the 11th century rock-hewn churches of Lalibela known as the Second Jerusalem; the historic castles of Gondar; and Harar, known as the City of Love. The country has been praised for its outstanding natural beauty, dramatic landscapes and ancient culture, leading the European Council on Tourism and Trade to select it out of 31 countries as this year’s top holiday spot.
