This city of more than three million is the capital of Ethiopia. Located in east Africa, Addis Ababa is a mixture of lifestyles with Italian architecture, historical cathedrals, mud huts and dazzling high-end hotels. This mesh of modernity and tradition with poverty and wealth is what will make any visit here a unique one.
Addis Ababa is a great destination any time of the year, however, if sightseeing is your prime interest, it may be best to avoid the rainy days of summer. A jaunt to the capital city on one of the many available flights during the spring, autumn or winter will most likely provide drier days.
Ethiopia is known for its religious holidays, so one can expect most of the local festivals in Addis Ababa to be centred on such an event. There is always something going on each month of the year, so don’t worry about missing out.
Ethiopian Christmas, which is referred to as Genna, is celebrated during the month of January. Timkat, which is the Ethiopian Epiphany, is also celebrated during the same month. If you’ve made Addis Ababa your destination to experience a Christmas abroad, January is the best choice.
There are also many festivals that occur here each year. The most notable is Enkutatash, which is the Ethiopian New Year. This event takes place in September and is in celebration of the New Year as well as the Feast of John the Baptist.
