Ethiopia has a tremendous amount of history and culture and is one of the most ancient civilizations that we have today. It is one of the only places in the world that has a completely unique culture that isn’t similar to others.
I tended to already stay away from restaurants and big hotel chains to eat and Ethiopia proved that right. The food is already extremely reasonable and the best places to eat in Ethiopia are in local restaurants.
I kid you not when I tell you that I used to drink six or seven machiatos every day because the coffee was that good. There is a coffee ceremony that you should definitely experience which is very unique.
Accommodation in Ethiopia is very reasonable, even in the developed cities like Addis Ababa you’re going to pay anywhere between $7-$15 a night for a private room with a shared bathroom and up to $20 to $30 for a private room and bathroom.
