Saturday, 27 October 2012 06:26

Lonely Planet, the global travel and guidebook company, has named Addis Ababa as one of the top ten cities in the world to visit in 2013.
The capital is placed 9th in its Best in Travel 2013 edition and is the only African city to appear in the top ten. The Ethiopian metropolis and diplomatic hub, renowned for its rapid development, is highlighted as best for culture, food and value for money. Lonely Planet said that "destinations make the list for a variety of reasons, including special events, recent developments or buzz, or that the destination is up-and-coming and worth visiting before the crowds get too big". The annual list is compiled on the basis of the views of the company's staff, writers and online community. Addis Ababa, this year, is celebrating the 125th anniversary of its foundation.
