Map of the city
This is a map of the city of Buenos Aires (this doesnt include the suburbs).
The city has 3 million inhabitants.
On red you can see the more touristic neigbourhoods where most of the attractions are. Also you can see the subway lines and where they reach, in case you rent a car you can also see the highways.
At Microcentro you will find several street artists: musicians playing large accordion, dancers dancing tango, clowns and singers.
The picture shows a really good singer thay performes at Florida and Córdoba; he plays de guitar and sings Joan Manuel Serrat's songs.
En Microcentro encontrarán varios artistas callejeros: músicos tocando el bandoneón, bailarines bailando tango, payasos y cantantes.
La foto muestra un cantante verdaderamente bueno que actúa en la esquina de Florida y Córdoba; toca la guitarra y canta canciones de Joan Manuel Serrat.
Soccer in BA
A must see activity in Buenos Aires is attending either Boca Jr. or River Plate soccer game. I got to see the Boca Jrs. play International (Brazil) and it was INSANE.
We Americans don't get too many opportunities to see quality soccer, so this is a big treat if you're traveling to BA from the states.
Find the Outlets for fashion bargains
Clothes in general are relatively cheap for foreigners in Argentina. If you look for fashion, the many outlets with bargains are located in Avenida Cordoba, somewhat between number 4000-5000. There are more outlet locations or in Palermo, Villa Crespo or even outside the inner circle of Buenos Aires, but here you find the highest concentration.
The mens clothes I like are from Tascani and you can find a shop of Tascani in shoppingcenter of Alto Palermo (subway station: line D, Bulnes, local 23), which is also close to one of my favourite cinemas Cinemark Palermo, but also in Av. Cordoba 4701 on a corner, you will find one of the outlets of Tascani. Av. Cordoba is a noisy street and is not a beautiful area, so just go here for shopping alone in several outlets. Shopping center Alto Palermo & surroundings is lovely.
They just have subtle, fashionable clothes for men, and are recognised as a good brand. The best buys in Buenos Aires are: fashion, shoes, CD's, leather products, music instruments, and african drums for professionals if you are into this.
I had an unbelievable night here. The place brings in international Dj's often. I was privlidged to see Steve Angello play and it was absolutely sick. It was a big event so I'm not sure what the place would be like on a normal night. If there is a big name in town when are you there, you better not miss it. Great sound stystem and setup, beautiful people, and banging music. Incredible night and place. Dress however you want.
