Traveling to a Beautiful and Bold City
What to knowBecause Bogata is the biggest economic city for Columbia; there are a lot of businesses and goods that you can purchase. In fact, this is one of the hands down best cities in the world to purchase Emerald jewels. Another thing that you should know about Bogota is that it can get cold during the winter months. This is important to consider if you wanted to travel to Columbia for the hot weather.
What to doOne of the things that you should do while you are here is go to the Gold Museum. Because gold was so important to Columbia, the museum says a lot about the people and some of the artifacts that define their culture. Another thing that you should do while you are here is go to the Iglesia de San Francisco, which is the oldest church that is still standing in the city. The ornate and stunning design details in the church have to be seen in person to be able to fully appreciate them.
When to goIf you are someone who loves movies and stories, you should visit during October. Every single year, the Bogota Festival of Cinema takes place. And if you are someone who appreciates the arts, you might want to go during March when the Festival Iberoamericano de Teatro takes place.
When to not goDecember through March tends to be the most popular time to travel, so you might want to stay away during this time if you want the lowest prices.
What to avoidAvoid waiting until the last minute to book your trip to Bogata. Because it is so popular, there are certain hotels and events that may already be booked.
Culture shockYou might be surprised at how different sections of the city can be. Norte is very modern and upscale. While you are in this section of the city, you are likely to see high end and luxurious restaurants and lodging options. And when you travel east, you will notice the marvelous mountains that are anything but modern.
