The African country of Eritrea is a hidden gem. Because so few tourists know anything about this country, you can often score a deal on flights to Eritrea quite easily. Many tours and safaris head out from Eritrea, some of which are included in Eritrea holiday packages.
One of the must unique features of Eritrea is the fact that the capital city, Asmara, seems to be frozen in time. From the art deco hotels in Eritrea to the predominance of 1930s-style clothing, a trip to Eritrea is unlike any other.
Asmara was acquired by Italy at the turn of the 20th century. In the late 1930s, the Italians redesigned the city. It was at this time that the famous architectural styles of the city were developed. In addition to the art-deco style, the architects of the time were not afraid to experiment. For example, the Cinema Imperio, built in 1937, resembles a circuit board, and Bar Zilli has curved walls and windows that remind one of portholes.
As the largest city in Eritrea, Asmara also has some of the top hotels you will find here. Hotels in Asmara are inexpensive and have ambiance to spare. The city offers some of the best Eritrea hotel deals, and it should be simple to find and book a great room at special discount rates and prices.
The warm season in Eritrea runs from June to September, with a cooler season from October to May. Different locations in the country can experience different temperatures. In the lowlands temperatures tend to be warmer. This is particularly true of the Dankalia region, which is quite warm and has almost no rainfall.
As Eritrea is discovered by more tourists, it becomes even more important to make advanced reservations for rooms in this marvelous little-known country. This way, you can ensure that you've received the best price on any of the Eritrea hotels at which you opt to stay.
One experience that can't be missed in Eritrea is a ride on an authentic steam train. The railway, built in 1887, connects the port of Massawa and Asmara. The line still uses much of the original equipment, including the trains themselves. This train will make a perfect conveyance to the location of your cheap hotel deals in Eritrea.
