1Unless you are sure you can sleep on the 'plane, I don't recommend this. The journey to Bahir Dar is quite long, and you would be absolutely shattered by the time you got there. You might well make some stupid mistakes in the process of finding a place to stay and getting there, and that level of fatigue is like an open invitation to illness.

3Just reading about arriving in Addis at 1am and then taking a 5:30am bus to Bahir Dar made me cringe! On another note, no one's selling tickets in Meskel (at least, not that I saw)

What did you end up doing?
My boyfriend and I are flying into Bole on Thursday, January 31st at 1am from Berlin and are considering your exact same route (Bole straight to bus depot to catch the first 5:30am bus to Bahir Dar).
We'd love to know what you decided to do and if it was worth it!

5I spent one day in Addis,then i toke a bus left from Autobus Terra in Merkato at 6.00 am.
You can do in the same day,but the confortable buses could be fully booked in the early morning,then you have to take a 2st level bus(as i did sometimes) i.e. a little tough.
