My Ethiopia transportation video was really useful for many of you, so today I’m breaking down all the important things you need to know when you land into Addis Ababa.

Here’s a quick summary:

Phone: Go to Ethio Telecom and get 300mb for $2

Internet: Get a VPN to get around internet and social media blockages. Voice over IP is often blocked. Try Asian chat apps. Here’s the VPN I used:

Electricity: Type C European plug, 220V

Cheap Flights: Get a discount on local flights if you fly into the country via Ethiopian Airlines

Customs: Don’t bring two laptops

Flight Tip: Show up early or else… you’ll see in my video
