Bolivia - La Paz & Around (Chapter)
This is the La Paz & Around chapter from Lonely Planet's Bolivia guidebook.
La Paz is a city of Gothic proportions, world-class views and a multi-ethnic cultural imprint unique to the Americas. It’s sinister and serendipitous… all at once and all at the same time. While there’s plenty of petty crime, traffic and pollution, La Paz is somehow so unique, so odd and so ridiculous, that it very well could become the highlight of your trip.
