Hidden Spot - Travel Eritrea
capitaleritrea Eritrea & Travel 2009-03-29
Eritrea is quiet a hidden spot for travel in Africa and underestimated
in its tourism potential.
The country offers many facets of geographical and cultural aspects.
>From the impressive Italian style art deco capital Asmara in the
highlands to the oriental read sea town of Massawa on the read sea.
Recently, in the Articlesbase Online travel section a visitor explains
what to do in Eritrea for holiday.
The country is populated by 13 different ethnic groups, which give
Eritrea a unique touch of richness in diverstiy.
Efforts have been stepped up to promote Eritrea as a tourism destination
by the Eritrean government in order to earn mostly needed hard currency.
Since a few years Eritrea is represented at the International Tourism
Fair in Berlin ITB as reported earlier by capitaleritrea.
However, the development of a tourism industry is hampered by the
ongoing conflict with neighboring Ethiopia and the risk of new wars
erupting between both countries. Moreover, the region has been in recent
years in bad publicity, due to instability and war in Somalia, Darfur in
Sudan, and the military presence of western nations in Djibouti. Eritrea
will therefore most probably remain a hidden spot known only to the
Eritrean Diaspora and their friends.
