South America's Bolivia is considered a less-crowded, cheaper alternative to Peru, but the rest of the world might soon catch on.
Local Ligia Mariaca shows off the most interesting spots in her Andean city La Paz, which lies over 3 500 metres above sea level - and she reveals a trick to help gasping tourists catch their breath.
How to get to La Paz
Beside having the highest seat of government, La Paz also has the world's highest international airport - El Alto. You can catch a flight from South Africa to Sao Paulo with SAA, then catch a flight to Lima in Peru and then another flight to La Paz.
