Bogotá, is not a typical South American large city, its red brick buildings are unique in Latin America. While Colombia has a dark history, more and more people are travelling each year to Colombia, as it already became, and are expecting to become much more safer throughout this century. Especially in the wealthier north part of Bogota you will feel very safe during day and night, as it is well protected. It is highly recommended to choose an accommodation in the North of Bogotá. When you arrive in Bogotá, you will notice a lot of westerners, from which are many working as expatriates. While the official language in Colombia is Spanish, you can get in touristy regions along with English. As the local people are very friendly and humble, please be aware that some of them never learned English, but somehow still will try to communicate with you. A basic Spanish knowledge or the usage of a translation application is highly recommended for travelling Bogotá and Colombia.
