One of the leading publishers of travel guidebooks, Rough Guides, recently held an online vote allowing its readers to select their top international destination choices for 2015.
According to the results, Ethiopia ranks number seven on the People’s Choice list that also includes the UK, Iceland, Japan, Chile, Turkey and the US.
“From the dramatic Great Rift Valley to the lush highlands, the diversity of Ethiopia’s landscapes might surprise you,” Rough Guides wrote in its announcement. “This is one of the most beautiful countries in Africa, and visitors find themselves entranced by the stunning lakes, sprawling national parks and delicious national cuisine.”
Addis Ababa was also featured on The New York Times “Places to Go” list in 2014.
