Bahir Dar

Ethiopia - Northern Ethiopia

The capital of Amhara Region and largest port on Lake Tana, Bahir Dar is a brilliant place to spend a few days.

Boasting a relaxed atmosphere and beautifully wooded stretch of lake shoreline teeming with wildlife. It also has some of the best tourism facilities outside of Addis Ababa. The sprawling daily market (Busiest on Saturdays), is the best place to start your adventure, exploring the web of market stalls selling handmade traditional crafts to fresh tropical fruits. In the evening there are a host of local eateries and tourist-friendly traditional music venues.
