Panama City – The City of Skyscrapers – Picture Diary
Panama is a Latin American country which forms part of Central America. The country borders between Costa Rica and Colombia and has a population is just over 3.5 million.
Panama City is the country’s capital. Located in the banking district of the city center, better known as Calle cincuenta (50). An array of tall commercial buildings are located within walking distance of each other.
One thing that I quickly learned while living here which is also an interesting fact, is that the majority of the buildings have a bank attached to them. They are usually on the ground floor and are named after the bank.
TheF&F/BBA Tower also called“El Tornillo”is located in the heart of the city and is the most distinctive one of them all. Obliquely opposite El Tornillo is the exclusive Soho Mall (seen on the left in the picture) and has the most high-end stores you can find in Panama. Brands like Chanel, Gucci, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors can be seen as you walk into the mall’s main entrance.
Panama City has been my new home for a little over ten months. In 2015 I moved to Panama due to work commitments. Living here has been one of the motivating factors for starting my blog. I always enjoyed capturing memorable moments on camera. Whether it is a beautiful scenery, sunset or collecting memories whenever I travelled. As the months passed, that joy quickly grew into a passion and hobby.
The picture below shows Capital Bank Tower which is named after the bank itself and is located on the ground floor of the building. On the opposite side is Global Bank Tower (not pictured) another main landmark in Panama City.
Below are some other towers and buildings which are named after the respective Banks. Panama City has their local bank, International and American Banks, Canadian, Colombian and Venezuelan Banks just to name a few.
Panama City has a few shopping malls within close proximity of the heart of the city. Apart from SOHO Mall (mentioned above) there is Multi Plaza and Multicentro. You don’t always have to go to the mall to shop but a lot of the same stores are strategically located throughout the city.
