* The '''Self-guided Public Transport Tour'''. The best way to see the real La Paz is to jump on and off public transport minibuses and micros at random, go to the end of the line, turn around and jump off at any place that looks interesting. There is no way to get lost and each jump on and off costs about $US 0.15. Buy fruit and so on along the way and talk to people in the periferal zones. Quite safe.

*<eat name="Glam" alt="" address="Sanchez Lima Nº 2237" directions="" phone="+ 591 2 2423446" url="" hours="" price="85Bs" lat="" long="">High-end international cuisine at a price to match. The food is excellent, and the surroundings live up to the name, but you won't get much change from 400Bs for two people (including wine and dessert). Despite describing itself as a "jazz lounge", the resident DJ has never heard of Chet Baker, Miles Davis or John Coltrane, and seems to prefer elevator music ... though with a little prodding can be persuaded to put something more tolerable on.</eat>

* '''Mongo's''', Hermanos Manchego 2444. Since 1995 has remained one of the most popular places for travellers with a good mix of locals. It's a lively atmosphere every night of the week at this place
. Open from 6PM-3:30AM. Serving the best in global cuisine, and well priced. Be careful, though, as many tourists (as of July 2009) have reported being duped by being charged much higher prices for drinks than listed on the menu. Check your bill carefully! Unfortunately because of it's popularity with tourists, Mongos has attracted pick-pockets as of late. A common trick to for a Bolivian to 'drunkenly' hug you in the bar, while he takes your phone/wallet/valuables from your pockets.
* '''Forum''', (''near Plaza Espana''). Bolivian hangout and a proper disco venue, the other one is called Soundbar. Very dressed up Bolivians frequent the establishment. Worth a look if you're missing a big club with big pretensions.
The most popular day trips from La Paz are to [[Tiwanaku]], [[Chacaltaya]], and [[Lake Titicaca]] (buses leave near the cemetery), though the latter (especially [[Copacabana]]) is pushing it a bit in terms of time.
Another popular daytrip is the bike ride down the world's most dangerous road, North Yungas Road ( a. k. a. '''Death Road'''). It's a 64 km long scenic ride downhill to [[Coroico]]. There was an average of 100 motor fatalities a year (though in the ten years that companies have been biking down the road, there have only been 12 biking fatalities), a world record, mostly due to the Bolivian driving style than to the road itself. Although it's a narrow, winding road with big drops on the side, going down by bike is probably the safest way to get to [[Coroico]] and there are several tour agents in La Paz offering the trip.
For a safer and more relaxed trip to Yungas, you may want to take the South Yungas Road that leads to Chulumani by bus. Around 36 km up the South Yungas Road you will find a surprise: a European castle, built in the 1930s, emerges in the middle of the coca and flower growing region. It´s a treat because the people who run the castle/hotel have built many narrow roads for hiking through mountains and mountain cascades. Much calmer and relaxing than Coroico. The hotel is called the Hotel y Parque Ecologico el Castillo del Loro.
You can head to [[Quime]] for some good trekking, [[Uyuni]] for the world's largest salt flats or [[Rurrenabaque]] for pampas and Madidi national park.
