Mini Travel Guide to Addis Ababa
Addis Ababa is a sprawling city, but it is still simple for travellers to navigate. Addis Ababa's efficient bus system offers easy access from the city centre to many of Addis Ababa's neighborhoods, and taking a taxi or hiring a car is also relatively inexpensive. The city's climate is much milder than the rest of Ethiopia, thanks to Addis Ababa's altitude. However, it is still best to travel to the city in the winter, fall or spring, as summer can be hot and humid.
