Nestled high in the chill Andes, South America’s hippest city (often compared to Berlin) is at once modern and ancient, misty and musical, and covered with amazing murals. Bohemian neighborhoods like historic La Candelaria and swinging Chapinero are all about excellent museums, artsy hipsters, funky bars, and great little restaurants. Or head uptown, to Zona Rosa and Zona T, where Colombia’s glitterati enjoy upscale shopping, fine dining, and big business. Grab a jacket, canelazo (sweet cinnamon tea spiked with hard liquor), and get ready to explore.
Interesting Fact: Bogotá’s CicloRuta, among the largest bicycle lane networks in the world, has more than 300km (186 miles) of protected paths.
