What To See In Mexico City





Quite obviously - Mexico is often neglected as a preferable travel itinerary — or is often kept as an extra after you have toured the much visited USA or Canada. Not so developed or affluent as its northern neighbors, Mexico indeed excites you for its cowboy culture and the rich history. Coming to the must see Mexico City i.e the capital city's sightseeings, while it leaves you agitated by its traffic and irritable bustle, yet is seemingly interesting for its historical artifacts and the flaunting national treasure sites. The happy-go- lucky crowd — though are stifled amidst dwindling water supply and uncontrolled air pollution — are more than amiable and helpful for tourists. For travelers like you, it is best to tarry for a day or two, to check out the must see places in Mexico City. Better to tuck yourself in a reputed hotel — preferably on the vicinity of the city — to avoid the city humdrum.


At the first sight — I would say — what registered was a not-so- plush, yet a city adorned with skyscrapers that seems significantly eye-catching amidst the urban sprawl. Mostly, an excellent destination for the foodies and the party-goers, the must see Mexico sightseeings are notable for hoarding unlimited shopping complexes, minor shops as well as pubs, bars and restaurants, to indulge into long shopping, eating and merrymaking. You can just walk past the crowded markets, frequently coming across small shops that are bountiful with finer things, art souvenirs and crafts. Some of the well known you may give a try are the San Jinto Plaza, Zocalo, La Lagunilla Market and Polanco neighborhood. If you love food, then it is obviously the Zona Tpsa, Coyoacan and many others you can try, to taste the authentic Mexican food as well as international delicacies.


And here you are — the true charm of Mexico. Overlooking meticulously made plazas, petty shops, branded stores or the dazzles of the pubs and the discotheques, walk over to the historical sites for once, to sense the true spirit of Mexico. While it is always best to read history books to know details, but the scattered historical prodigies are more than enough proof about the unmatched historical importance of the state. Glance at the rare artistic example of museums like Palacio de Bellas Artes, Museo del Templo Mayor, Frida Kahlo Museum and the National Palace, to peek into the art and history of the country and the city. Boasting to be some of the best must see places in Mexico City, the National Museum of Anthropology, Museum of the City of Mexico, Museo Dolores Olmedo Patino and Museo Leon Trotsky can also be some of your favorite destinations.


But, further, it is the mind-boggling amusement parks, the salubrious parks and the lush green lawns that takes precedence over the other must see Mexico sites. Not because they are different from the other parks of the world, but for portraying a typical Mexican ambiance. If tired of the hustle or if the pollution is getting over your nerves, then take a break. Walk along the lushly lawns, the well-groomed grasslands of the city and the historical parks like Chapultepec Park, Xochimilco, Floating Gardens of Xochimilco etc. Don't forget the national parks in the city either.
