Lonely Planet is the largest travel guide book publisher in the world for people who love travelling so they could plan and book their perfect trip with expert advice, travel tips, destination information and inspiration.
Regardless to the difficulties to the state of emergency issue, the travel guide named Ethiopia as a destination not to be missed stating:
“With its own calendar (where else can you get 13 months of sunshine?), timekeeping, script, language, cuisine, church and coffee, Ethiopia is as exotic as countries come. And whether you’re trekking through the Simien Mountains to witness wildlife that roams nowhere else on Earth, climbing to a church carved into a remote cliff face in Tigray or boating across the serene waters of Lake Tana to visit an age-old monastery, you’ll be overwhelmed by the beauty of the landscape. In 2017 new airline links will make the country more accessible than ever, so be one of the first to hop on board.”
