Salt Flats

The salt flats of Uyani (Salar Uyuni) are incredible and well worth seeing, even in the wet season they look amazing as the sky is reflected perfectly in the water. The town of Uyuni is really not a place you'd want to stay for long as it just consists of touristy restaurants and cafes. It lacks energy and there didn't seem to be any nightlife. We got a night bus from La Paz, got to Uyuni in the morning, did the tour then took a night bus back, though this was a little intense! (We saved money on hostels though!) The tours booked from Uyuni are cheaper than the ones you'll get from La Paz, so you can just arrive on the morning you want to do the tour and someone will run up to you to try and sell you one, easy! During wet season a lot of the activities usually included in the tour are out of bounds, but a lot of tour operators won't tell you this, so make sure you ask exactly what you'll be doing.
