Shopping opportunities in Bogotá are plentiful and varied. In the historical city centre is the best place for handicrafts and bargains. Up north, around Zona T, you will find upscale shopping malls and boutiques, with plenty of cafes and restaurants to recharge your batteries. Colombian artisans are well known for their leather shoes and purses, precious emeralds and intricate gold jewellery. You can haggle for better prices in the centre, but be prepared to pay the sticker price in the more upscale shops.
