This sprawling market in El Alto, open Thursdays and Sundays, is a local favorite for its vast range of products—food, clothing, electronics, and much more. Bargain for brightly colored handmade blankets and other souvenirs, or simply walk the streets and marvel at the surprising array of things for sale, from used cars to live animals. Mind your wallet as you work your way through the sea of shoppers. To arrive in style, combine your visit with a cable car tour to El Alto. An added bonus: As you float above the neighborhood, you’ll be able to admire the cholets, fantastical buildings by Bolivian architect Freddy Mamani.
