Places to Visit in Bogota
In spite of the negative reviews given by the US government, the number of tourists coming to the city have increased considerably. Colombia is one of the few nations, which is hugely affected by the ongoing drug wars between mafias and cops.
Travelers can visit the Botero Museum, Luis Ángel Arango Library, Colón Theater and Gold Museum. During the day, this neighborhood becomes a famous market place in which people can find almost all famous brands. However, travelers are not advised to roam on the streets during the night-time as there are high chances of getting mugged.
The bull fighting season in Colombia doesn't start before December and people who want to see this amazing and ruthless sport are advised to make future bookings.
Casa de Nariño (Presidential Palace)
The trip to the capital city would be incomplete if travelers don't visit the Presidential palace. The Presidential palace is located just minutes away from the busy Plaza de Bolivar (a very busy market area).
It is a very beautiful and heavily guarded fortress as it is the house of the President of Colombia. Visitors are not allowed inside the palace and even if they get close to the gate, the guards signal them to move away.
The museum contains more than 50,000 pieces of gold and various objects made from stone, bone and ceramics, which are centuries old.
