Bogota Rich in Culture

Aug 30, 2008
Many people would not consider Bogota as a cultural holiday destination, mainly because very few people have heard about it. So instead of going to Rome or Paris, or somewhere else as equally cliced, why not try going somewhere different. Somewhere most of your friends and colleagues have not been.

The first thing you have to consider is the accommodation available to you and what you are looking for. Bogota has everything you need on the accommodation front. If you are someone who prefers the consistency and convenience of a hotel, then there are many beautiful hotels that you can find in the main parts of Bogota. If, however you prefer the older parts of the city for cultural reasons then you will be able to find many hotels to suit your needs.

You will find most of the cultural sights of the city are in the historic central neighborhood of La Candelaria. These hotels can easily be found on the Internet. There you should be able to find all the information you need about the hotel, the amenities you expect and the location in context of the places you wish to see.

The Plaza de Bolivar is the famous town square. This is where you will find the sitting of both the federal and local governments. Once you are there, you should see the First Cathedral that was built in the 1500s.
By finding the right accommodation in close proximity to the Cathedral, you will also be in walking distance from the Museo del Oro (meaning, Gold Museum) that is Bogota's premier museum in terns of arts and culture. This is just one of many museums that you will find in the culturally rich city of Bogota.

The public transport in Bogota is highly rated so you should be able to get around the city with relative ease. For this reason, it is not imperative that you stay within the city itself. If you prefer the peace and quiet of a slightly more remote area then you can stay in one of the many self-catering apartments scattered around. These you should also be able to find with a search engine. Most reputable accommodation sites will show you pictures of the places so you know more or less what you are in for. If you book early then you will be able to find the better places for an even better price. Another tip is to go just after the peak season so you avoid the main tourist rush.
