Ethiopia Tops List of Countries to visit in 2014

Rough Guides, one of the premier travel publishers, announced Ethiopia its number one choice for international tourist destination for the year 2014. In its top ten global destinations for the year, the publisher named Ethiopia as top of the list citing its rich culture “this culturally rich east African nation has always been an enticing destination”.

Rough Guides also made reference to the country’s growing hospitality industry saying “independent travel around the country is becoming easier thanks to a boom in small hotels and restaurants”.  Ethiopia’s legendary natural and cultural heritages were also mentioned as reasons to visit Ethiopia in the new European year; “untouched national parks, the ancient cities of Axum, Harar and Lalibela, the world’s first coffee plantations, the largest cave in Africa at Sof Omar and the continent’s largest concentration of UNESCO sites”, according to the publisher, are attractions worth seeing. Rough Guides is a travel guidebook and reference publisher that is known for its critical reviews since its first guidebook was published in 1982.
