凹凸曼和小伙伴Wandering around in the town of Uyuni Recommendation index🌟🌟🌟 📍Location: Uyuni, Potosi Province, southwestern Bolivia 👟Transportation: walking 🏞Recommended route: Uyuni Town 🎫Ticket: 🆓City visit 💱Currency: The exchange rate of Bolivian currency and soft sister currency is rounded to 1:1. 🔺The streets and alleys are full of various exchange shops that mainly exchange US dollars. Although U.S. dollars can also be circulated, most local shops are more willing to accept Bolivian coins without a premium. ⌚️Play time: 3 hours 📝Travel tips: 🔸Uyuni was originally a mining town. You can see the landscape decorations mainly abandoned mine carts on the main road of the town. 🔹 There are no attractions in the town itself, and it has the same style of painting as all inland towns, except for the high-altitude sun which makes the residents darker. 🔸 The loess can't describe the environment of Uyuni. Fortunately, there is no wind in Uyuni, that is, exposure. 🔹Except for shops and various travel agencies, most restaurants or other official institutions are closed from 12:00 noon to 14:30 pm. As for whether they do not do it after 14:30, it depends on luck. So if there is any need, it is best to do it in the morning.

圣热尔韦昂瓦列尔周勃The Salar de Uyuni is located in the western plateau of Potosi Province, Bolivia. It is 3,656 meters (11,995 feet) above sea level, 150 kilometers long, 130 kilometers wide, and covers an area of 9,065 square kilometers. It is the world’s largest salt-covered wasteland. "Mirror". There are salt fields on the edge, and the main salt fields are connected by roads. We took a four-wheel drive across the vast and endless salt lake. What is amazing is the cactus island in the salt lake. Picture 2 is a volcano in the distance, picture 8 is a salt table and chair

Modern Architecture
天羽博士This is probably one of the weirdest hotels in the world, known as the Salt Palace. As the name suggests, it is all made of salt. Although the locals promise that it will never collapse, I believe it will not, but it is still a little uncomfortable psychologically. It feels a bit similar to walking on the glass path. A must-have song in the salt palace, lick the wall. See if it is really salt.

Lake
凹凸曼和小伙伴Uyuni smelly lake play guide Recommendation index🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 🦩A must for bird watching, you can see mythical beasts along the way. It can be said that it is a cost-effective route that combines both the god bird and the god animal. 📍Geographical location: On the border of Bolivia and Chile, about 4.5 hours one way from Uyuni. 🚙Mode of transportation: Self-driving 🏞Recommended route: Uyuni chartered tour ⌚️Play time: 10 hours 📷Recommended equipment: a telephoto lens is equipped according to financial resources! 🔺Remember to run in with the camera before you travel, otherwise you will regret it. After all, this thing is heavy and big, and if it doesn't work, it's basically a white back. 👓Clothing suggestions: Sunglasses, sun protection clothing, physical sun protection, shoes with non-slip wear resistance is better. 📝Travel tips: 🔸The weather in Uyuni is unpredictable. I originally wanted to sign up for a three-day tour, but because of the heavy rains, the cactus island channel was flooded, um~ So the most force majeure of the tour is definitely the weather. I finally chose the two-day tour. I suggest you prepare more Several travel options. 🔹Smelly lake is rich in various minerals, especially sulphur, so it smells like eggs. But after a long time, I got used to it. After all, the picnic during the trip was still by the smelly lake. The picnic includes drinks (cola, mineral water), staple food (roast chicken, rice), vegetable salad, and fruit (banana). 🔸Flamingos in high altitude areas are mainly pink, one is the species, and the other is the lack of lutein in the algae in the salt lake. 🔹No matter the beast or bird, they are all super vigilant, without a telephoto lens, and they ran away when they got close.
