  • See a truly cosmopolitan city in Bogotá, Colombia

    2010-01-28

    When compiling a list of the world's largest and most international cities, many people overlook Colombia's capital of Bogotá. The city is a grand and amazing metropolis comparable in size to San Francisco or Washington DC, and boasts a population of approximately 8.1 million people.

    Travelers have long been mystified by Bogotá's mixture of classical style with modern culture that is considered unique for the region. It is not uncommon to happen across traditionally Spanish style cathedrals cooling the shadows of a massive skyscraper, or footpaths thick with jungle vegetation running into vibrant urban highways.

    The city itself is flanked by mountains to its east and vast expanses of sierra to the west, making finding one's way a touch simpler than many major cities - a beneficial element when attempting to navigate the city's 20 or so districts.

    With such a large city it may help to focus particular days on a single district to maximize one's exploration time.

    Visitors seeking a historical experience might enjoy the city's colonial district, La Candelaria, while those desiring more bohemian and arty fare might enjoy La Macarena. Tourists who like to party can hit up the nightclubs in Parque de la 93, while sightseers might enjoy the modern marvels on display at Teusaquillo.
