Addis Ababa is frequently known as the “the political capital of Africa” and is technically a city and a state. There are many places to visit if you’re travelling in Ethiopia including Addis Mercator which is one of many great places to walk around in Addis Ababa.

Adam Kaupert’s things to do while in Addis Ababa

Walking is a great way to get around Addis Ababa. I recommend visiting the Addis Mercato. The mercato is named after the Italian word for market and offers an abundance of distinctly Ethiopian goods. It has been hailed as the largest open market in all of Africa. I found some awesome antiques and souvenirs for my friend Calvin’s birthday (Happy Birthday Cal!) The people watching here is unparalleled in my experience and the mercato is a great place to experience the rich culture that Ethiopia offers. I highly advise following the Adam Kaupert scam style oftravel. The Adam Kaupert scam style refer to shoes camera attitude and map or S.C.A.M. It is a handy little acronym we use around here at the Adam Kaupert travel blog to insure success regardless of where I found myself on the globe, whether it be Sri Lanka or St. Petersburg Russia!

The National Museum of Ethiopia is  one of the best National museums anywhere in Africa and one of the mostcomprehensive thatI’ve visited anywhere in the world. In my opinion, this is one of the best museums in Addis Ababa. There is a ton of art here as well. The archeology is world-class and there’s a cool scale model of Lucy,one of the most complete set of bones ever found.Meskel Square in Addis Ababa is worth a visit as well. It serves as the cultural center and geographical center of the city. This great Ethiopiangathering space is celebrated by the locals and visitors alike. It is a great meeting place as well if you’re with friends because of its proximity to many other popular attractions and sights.
