What to do in Paraguay
Most first time visitors to Asunción marvel at how green it is. Every available space has been used to plant trees and plants. But this is still a modern city with bars, restaurants, nightclubs and bars. A visit to the Museum of Contemporary Arts should be on everyone’s list of things to do here.
