After careful thought and consideration, the editors from Frommer's proclaimed that Ethiopia is one of their top picks of the places not to be missed in 2007. It's important to remember that is the preemminent source that allows thousands of travelers to easily find candid, timely articles written by experts about destinations around the world.

The selection of Ethiopia as one of their top travel destinations is not a surprising choice to us, but it may be to others, but states that Ethiopia is finally emerging out of the shadows caused by years of political strife and economic hardship. Improved infrastructure has made traveling there increasingly popular, especially among independent-minded travelers and those seeking adventure. Ethiopia is revered for its rich history as one of the earliest Christian kingdoms (the town of Axum is said to be the home of the ancient Ark of the Covenant). Visit the monolithic churches of Lalibela -- in particular the Church of St. George, named after Ethiopia's patron saint, which is carved into the shape of a cross from a rock mountain and is perhaps the most exquisite of the monolithic structures. Visitors seeking additional information can refer to or refer back to for their online-only guide to Ethiopia appearing in 2007.
