Three Reasons Why: Bogota
Reason One: Art
The art scene in Bogota, Colombia goes above and beyond the works of Fernando Botero. As a whole the city is stepping out of the shadows Bogota’s art scene is gaining worldwide recognition with the help of a few contemporary art galleries. An estimated 80 galleries were counted in 2016 and nearly as many museums. However, art galleries are blooming like wildflowers and appear to be popping up in just about every corner. Bogota’s art scene not only lives behind the doors of a bohemian art gallery, the streets are decorated with magnificent works done by local artists. The art, which adorns the city, shows just how beautifully Bogota upholds its culture while stepping into the modern world.
Reason Two: Cuisine
Bogota’s local cuisine is truly something to fall in love with, from the Cocido Boyacense, to the deliciously sticky arequipe. The best part is some of the most delicious dishes are not found at 5-star restaurants with heavy price tags. Pass by a street cart and pick up a few empanadas, they are the perfect mid-day snack, or even an afternoon meal…actually, you can even enjoy these delicious pastries any time of the day you wish! Once you’re through enjoying one of the unbelievable dishes that Bogota has to offer, you’ll need to indulge your sweet tooth. There is something for absolutely everyone ice cream, chocolate and absolutely everything in between. The streets in Bogota are filled with coffee shops where you can easily lose yourself. We do recommend that you tread lightly and enter these places at your own risk as it may be impossible to leave!
