Ethiopia has been included as one of Lonely Planet’s ‘1o Best value destinations’ for 2014. The list compiled by the world’s largest travel guide publisher, is catered to those that prefer to get the most out of their money without burning a hole in their wallet.
The list also included the Greek Islands, Italy, Nicaragua, Bulgaria, Portugal, Fiji, Mexico, Karnataka India and Palawan, the Philippines.
Here’s what they had to say about Ethiopia:
‘While you can’t get everywhere in Ethiopia on US$30 a day, you can see a huge amount of its highlights by taking great-value and time-saving flights along the country’s Historic Route. This astonishing journey includes the Lake Tana monasteries and the Blue Nile Falls, the rock-hewn wonders of Lalibela and much more. True, the budget goes out the window if you hire a vehicle and driver or join an organised tour – which you need in order to get the most out of the country’s wild west – but you can always save that for another visit. This is one slice of Africa that rewards the curious as well as the deep-pocketed.’
