And The World’s Most Welcoming Country is in Africa...
The Land of Origins, Ethiopia has been voted the World’s Most Welcoming Country by global followers of Rough Guides, a leading travel publishers known for its “tell it like it is” review.
According to the review, digital followers of Rough Guides were asked to share their experiences of the most hospitable places around the world and Ethiopia was voted the World’s Most Welcoming Country.
Ethiopia is a profoundly beautiful East African country with a history that stretches back many thousands of years. It was never colonized, so their tribal customs and hospitable traditions are largely just as they’ve always been.
Take the Ethiopian coffee ceremony: the women of the household meticulously roast, grind and boil the aromatic beans, before presenting three consecutive cups of exceptionally fresh coffee to their guests. The process can last for hours, but it’s considered a real mark of friendship.
Ethiopia is a land of great ancient civilizations endowed with astonishing assets including the world’s oldest hominid fossils, the magnificent walled city of Harar of the 9thcentury, the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela of the 12th century, the splendour of the castles of Gonder of the 17th country, the jaw-dropping mountainous landscape of Simien National Park with its endemic animals unique to Ethiopia.
Others are the beautiful Konso cultural site; the impressive Tiya Stones in the south; the breathtaking Bale Natural Park with its variety of wild animals; the delightful Kaffa region from where coffee first spread to the rest of the world. Ethiopia has everything to offer as your next holiday destination.
To enable visitors enjoy these leisure, cultural, historical and natural sites, Ethiopian Holidays has availed tourists accessible, affordable and attractive tour packages that will meet their high expectations.
Moreover, Ethiopian has established an extensive network covering 95 international destinations across five continents with excellent connectivity to all the Ethiopian tourism sites.
