I have visited the Portuguese Bridge many times for business purpose. I always love the scenery which is more beautiful during the Ethiopian rainy season (June to September) as it would also offer powerful waterfall.

If you are only in Addis for one day you probably don’t want to waste it driving up to the Portuguese Bridge even though I highly recommend the trip. It would take about 5 hours of your day to drive to the bridge, spend an hour there and drive back. Driving up to Entoto Mountain would be a much shorter trip. It has wonderful views of Addis and a very cool temple/monastery and Ethiopian museum to see on top. Going into downtown Addis to the Edna Mall is definitely fun too. If you have never spent much time in Ethiopia before I would also highly recommend going to a traditional Ethiopian restaurant to have traditional food and watching traditional Ethiopian dance. Have fun!
