Getting Around Asmara
A rental car is the best means to explore Asmara, but driving around Asmara can be quite a task especially if you are visiting the city for the first time. To help you avoid unnecessary hassle, below are some tips on getting around Asmara:
Within the city of Asmara, maintain a speed limit of 21 mph in downtown areas to 45 mph in the outskirts.
Plenty of hotels in Asmara, especially the ones near the airport, offer a safe and secure parking facility. The airport itself is a good parking option.
If you want to avoid driving through major traffic, do not take to the downtown streets such as Martyrs Avenue and Damtew Avenue during peak hours of 7:00 am to 9:30 am and 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm.
Take a Day Trip!
Drive along the road that heads westward from Asmara to reach Keren, the second largest town of Eritrea. The one and a half hour drive can be a rewarding experience if you wish to get up close with the local tribes, especially the Bilen and Tigre tribes make up majority of the population here.
The port town of Massawa is a comfortable 2 hours away from Asmara. Drive to the Gurgusum Beach to spend a peaceful evening or visit the downtown to grab some great dinner at the local cafe or restaurant.
