Is Bogotá dangerous?
Hi everybode! Today I am going to tell you a little bit of my impressions of Bogotá.
With over 9 million inhabitants Bogotá is not only the capital, but also the larges city in Colombia.
Arrived at the airport
It takes quite a while to get to the city center. Of course there are regular buses and taxis that offer affordable rides but I chose to take an Uber, which was no as easy as I thought it would be since Uber is forbidden in Colombia and there is a dispute between them and the regular taxi drivers.
I had to find a certain driver at the indicated location in the middle of a parking lot. After a long time writing and searching I finally got my Uber.
Driving by all those houses and neighborhoods I was surprised how big this city was. The streets are busy with a lot of traffic.
What I saw
Restaurants, market places and a nice old town. Painted walls and the urban lifestyle make this city really interesting.
Large squares with crowds and cool little coffe shops and bars in side streets.
In the little restaurants they offer you traditional food to unbelievably cheap prices. So don’t search the fanciest ones just go and get something thats more cultural!
City cable car!
A little outside of the city you have the opportunity to see the roofs and colored houses from above with a city cable car. We had such a good time and took nice pictures.
Is Bogotá dangerous?
Yes the city is dangerous, but! The chance that you get robbed can be minimized. No nice shirts, your watch can stay in the hotel and all the other fancy stuff is not quite right. Behave normally and try to stay on the main streets or in turistic areas and you will certainly not be touched at all.
I fell in love with the culture of Colombia and its people, so it is worth a visit!
Thanks for reading this post and I hope to see you soon on my channel!
