Ethiopia Travel Guide + Vlog | Addis Ababa and Awassa

What are the best things to do in Ethiopia? This travel guide slash vlog will show you everything I did during my two weeks there! From Addis Ababa to Awassa, I'll take you to two beautiful regions of the country and share some of my best travel tips.

I visited Ethiopia for work, so didn't get to do many typical touristy things like the churches in Lalibela, Danakil Depression or hiking the Simien Mountains. But my experiences were perhaps a little more local and authentic than your average guided tour, so I hope you'll take this video for what it is.

Have you ever been to Ethiopia? Did you just pass through the capital of Addis Ababa, or did you have time to go sightseeing? Let me know in a comment below, I'm so curious!

Ethiopia as a Travel Destination

Ethiopia. One of those countries that we all have heard but knew very little about. The mention of this country brings an exotic sound where one might imagine well-fashioned and accessorized tribes in a mountainous backdrop. That’s how it was for me at least.

Luckily, that daydreaming had come to an end. The nature of my work, fortunately, gave me the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see this country.

Ethiopia is a tourist destination like no other. You feel like you’re one of the first ones there. Like you are travelling back in time. Don’t take Ethiopia lightly because its profound history will make you question about yourself too. And after you’ve been, you will not return as the same person.

Top 10 Tourist Destination Places in Ethiopia

Ethiopia is the “Land of Thirteen Months”. It’s a magical country with ancient and spiritual roots, rich in significant religious history and that has a fabulous story to tell. The beauty of wild mountains is only surpassed by the awe-inspiring religious architecture that draws visitors to this amazing country. It’s where legends of the Ark of the Covenant live side by side and in harmony with ancient Islamic mosques. From thundering waterfalls to its vibrant and modern capital city, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia is a place you have to see to believe. Here are 10 of the best and most incredible places to visit in Ethiopia.

1. The Rock-Hewn Churches of Lalibela!
2. Simien Mountains National Park!
3. The Obelisk of Axum!
4. Atse Fasilides' Castle!
5. Blue Nile Falls!
6. Lake Tana & Its Monasteries!
7. Danakil Depression!
8. Addis Ababa!
9. The People of the Lower Omo Valley!
10. The Holy City of Harar!

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, panorama and tourist attractions

Most Unique Humans on Earth? Inside Ethiopia's Omo Valley

I have spent the last 3 days in the Omo Valley of South Western Ethiopia. It's one of the most remote and undiscovered inhabited places in the world. You will not believe what I just experienced.

The Omo Valley is home to 10 distinct ethnic tribes, all living within the same land. Their traditions and rituals have been passed down for thousands and thousands of years, and it was a very special experience to be able to witness it first hand.

If you've been watching my videos for some time, then you know that I always try to dig deep into local cultures to observe unique lifestyles. Because meeting people and learning about how they survive is my favorite part about traveling. With that being said, I think I have just reached my climax of finding hidden cultures here in the Omo Valley, Ethiopia.

Have you ever heard of the Omo Valley, Ethiopia? Or been here before?

What Can $10 Get in LAGOS, NIGERIA? (craziest city)

HELLO FROM LAGOS, NIGERIA -- COUNTRY #175!! ???????? I truly had a lot of fun making this video inside Africa's craziest and most populated city. Did you know that over 20 million people are living in Lagos?! It is hands down one of the most hectic, chaotic and vibrant places I've ever been with a LOT of stories to tell. I'm overwhelmed.

My local friend and YouTuber named Tayo (his channel linked below) has been taking me all around his bustling city and we've had an absolute blast together. Surprisingly, this was one of the hardest videos I've ever made because it's REALLY challenging to shoot content on these streets. People don't like being on the camera here and they make a huge commotion in the streets and ask for money (etc) whenever they see it from a distance.

In any regard, I hope you enjoy this episode of my $10 series and get a glimpse into local Nigerian culture. More to come tomorrow!

Why I Don't Like This Country ????????

► SUBSCRIBE for daily travel videos:

While I constantly try to find the positives in every place I visit, there are few places that I just simply didn't enjoy.

The country of Brunei is one of them.

I went to Brunei back in 2014, three years before I made videos, but my negative experiences in the country have stuck in my mind ever since. That, combined with its absurd human rights laws such as stoning to death LGBT members, I was pushed to make this video.

Have you ever visited any countries that you didn't enjoy? Please share below, I'm curious to know.

Must-See In Ethiopia ✈

Places I visited in Ehtiopia: Addis Ababa, Arba Minch, Lake Chamo, Konso, Omorate, Turmi, Jinka and Awasa

Ethiopia by HandZaround

'Ehtiopia' is a personal project of travellers HandZaround.com funded in majority by them and created in their free time.

Read more about the film here:

'Green highlands, barren deserts, impassable lowlands, sparkling waterfalls, glistening lakes, bustling towns. We can’t describe Ethiopia with one word, unless we reach for ‘diversity’.

‘Ethiopia’ takes you on a journey off the beaten track through Northern lands of the country. It offers you a glimpse into the life of Amharic people living in the highlands, a chance to take part in important religious celebrations of Meskel, and a visit through a myriad of majestic Ethiopian landscapes, varying from the hottest desolate reds of Danakil Depression, to tremendous Blue Nile Falls, to the colourful mixture of cultures that you can find in the country’s capital, Addis Ababa.

Although the film is our personal tribute to this unique and vast country, it was impossible to include all that Ethiopia comprises of. We have yet to visit the South, East and West of Ethiopia. For more information about the places featured in the film, head to the article on our website:
handzaround.com/journal-1/ethiopia-travel-film

We are of course aware that Ethiopia consists of Muslim population, and other religions, but unfortunately we didn't have enough time and funds to represent the whole cultural, religious and natural landscape of Ethiopia.

In our description and in our understanding the word 'diverse' applies mainly to Ethiopian geography ('Green highlands, barren deserts, impassable lowlands, sparkling waterfalls, glistening lakes, bustling towns. We can’t describe Ethiopia with one word, unless we reach for ‘diversity’ '), and in our opinion Ethiopia is very diverse in that sense, especially in comparison to the countries we come from.'
