Set in a narrow basin just 5km wide, and guarded by sharp Andean peaks, La Paz is one of the most striking capital cities in the world. Nothing can prepare you for your first sight of the city, especially at night when millions of lights fill the canyon and crawl up the sides of the mountains. By day the city is a bustling mishmash of colourful Indian markets, suited businessmen, honking cars and wide-eyed tourists. You could spend days wandering around taking it all in, but when it gets too much, escape to the cool, quiet interiors of some of the city’s numerous museums and art galleries for a taste of Bolivian culture.
