It is a place to come for some respite from the city, but truthfully it has a weird vibe and everything is so ridiculously overpriced that you do not really feel like staying. The interiors are grand hardwood and marble rooms, and the exteriors has some beautiful rose gardens strewn along the fountains, but then there is a super tacky ...

Lovely well-curated collection of local handy crafts and art. This is a one stop shop for souvenirs that won't end up in your closet at the end of the trip. Paintings, jewelry, wooden furniture, etc.

Located in the Ghion Hotel and presided over by the famous Mulatu Astatke, this place is one of the top places in town to see Ethio-Jazz. The club is dimly lit and looks like it was decorated in the 70s but the music is good, and it is definitely worth a visit.Popular withDesignNightlifeTrendsters

All routes begin in the Capital, Addis Ababa. Mercato is the largest open-air market in Africa. It employs tens of thousands and spans a 5 km width. Be warned, you can literally find anything. A guide is essential for safety and comfort. A walk-through is a cultural assault of all the senses. Afterwards, stop for some respite on the fringes ...Popular withOutdoorAdventureLocal

This is a super cool place. Run by an Ethiopian couple that has lived in the states for a long time and is well traveled. They understand the beauty of the Ethiopian culture, and the styles and standards that travelers will be looking for. They have a weaving and jewelry studio right there on the property, where you can see ...Popular withDesignLuxuryTrendsters

Addis is a large city where even locals seem to be constantly lost. Taxi cab drivers, and vendors are constantly trying to rip you off, and it is super nice to have a local on your side. Migbaru knows the major attractions around town, is super kind and great company. You can find him at the National Museum selling chewing ...Popular withLocal

The church itself isn't particularly spectacular but the views of downtown Addis and the people watching here make it well worth the trip. Entoto Maryam Church is very active / alive. A nice place to see locals and maybe catch a glimpse of a traditional wedding.

A welcomed break from the hustle of the city. You can spend the day walking up the hill, or take a quick ride to the top. There is a church which really looks like it should be missed, but a five minute walk back down the hill yields a beautiful vista of the city, where you can spend some time ...Popular withOutdoorLocal
- 111.5 miBole Road, Behind Zola pastery1.5 mi from Sheraton Addis1 review
This is a cool little gallery if you can find it. It was named after five artists who came together, but has since dissolved and come back together. There is some very cool art to check out here though and it is right near the Makush gallery so might as well stop by. It is off Bole Ave. just head ...

The real attraction here is Lucy (or two casts of her) and a nice overview of evolution. It was amusing to have a very conservative Christian guide (and most of them are), speak with pride about Ethiopia's role in proving the Theory of Evolution. As our guide said... "you have to separate religion from science or it doesn't make sense."Popular withHistoryFamilies

Promising but disappointing shop selling paintings by local artists. Unfortunately, the work is amateur and not very good. Nothing here comes even close to the quality of the lovely church paintings that you will see throughout your visit to Ethiopia.Popular withDesignLocal

Besides the Merkato, this is one of the hot spots to buy Ethiopian traditional clothing. It is just a long row of stands on the side of the road, so take your time perusing, and bargaining until you are satisfied. It is a local place to buy clothes, but if you are not local they will not offer you local ...Popular withDesignLocal
