General opinion: Great adventure and a beautiful city. Fantastic food, entertainment, shopping and tourist attractions. Fantastic historical locations both within and outside the city. Found it easy to walk around without being hassled. The taxis are very accessible and easy to use. Was able to get around the large city quite easily.

General opinion: Addis Ababa is getting biger by days. More people, more cars more shops, more appartments. But the sad part is there is no public car parking and there is no public play ground for kids. Only buildings, even those building they don't have enough underground parking for their tenants. There should be a regulation for each appartments or shops to build enough parking for each unit also for each Kebele there should be play ground for kids.

General opinion: There should be more fun or somewhat interesting places in Addis. We lack that. The only thing we see here is more Cafes and Restaurants and that shouldn't be the case. Except that i love my city.

General opinion: Addis ababa is the largest,the most beautiful capital city of Ethiopia with its large working people. We Ethiopians are lucky to have beautiful natural resources, landscape and interesting historical remains. Generally I have no words to express all the beauty of Ethiopia.

General opinion: The city of Addis Ababa is busy and lots of constructions is going on. The older parts of the city is being replaced by new buildings and the architecture is ugly: a mishmash of all foreign buildings. One needs to go to those classic route destinations to see our own ancient and medieval buildings.

General opinion: I recently moved into Addis from another regional town. Obviously, in addition to being the country's capital, Addis is the center of culture, business, etc. You can't think of anywhere better to live in Ethiopia.

General opinion:  Addis Ababa, capital and largest city of Ethiopia, is located at the geographic heart of the nation in the mountainous Shawa Province, at the foot of Mount Entoto.
Addis Ababa, which means "New Flower" in Amharic, was founded in 1896 by Emperor Menelik II, and the city is the last in a succession of capitals of the great Abyssinian empire dating back to the pre-Christian Axum.
Today Addis Ababa is a huge metropolis of 4 million people where modern buildings and wide open boulevards stand side by side with historic churches, palaces and monuments, ... More as well as simple country-style huts.
The city is served by the modern Bole International Airport and it has a railway connection with Djibouti.
Modern Addis Ababa also plays host to many international organizations, including the OAU, the Economic Commission for Africa, and other multi-national bodies, who all have their headquarters here.
