Bolivia is an often forgotten part of South America, but I am glad I did not miss it out! La Paz put up a wonderful festival of music and colours while I was there which displayed its rich culture and identity. The people are extremely friendly and humble and spending time at the Uyuni Salt Flats was undoubtedly one of the highlights of my trip. Despite the teasing between Peru and Bolivia over lake Titicaca, I must admit the Bolivian side offers a wonderful vantage point on the lake from which to admire all its majestic glory. I am determined to go and explore this hidden gem further!
To choose a favourite country is just too hard as they are so different, but for a cultural shock (in a good way!) you must visit the high altitudes of Bolivia to explore the salt flats, discover the families of the floating islands of Lake Titicaca, and if you are feeling adventurous perhaps cycle down the world’s most dangerous road! For something a little bit different and a real adventure visit Bolivia, I am sure you will love it as much as I do.
It can be hard to escape the tourist track in an unfamiliar place, but not to worry, we've listed tips for seeing the more authentic side of Peru & Bolivia.
