Re: visiting BA

Wow, you're going to the land of Tango - I am so envious! But yes, definitely watch a Tango show or your visit will not be complete. Even just watching a tango show on the streets of Caiminito will be enough --- that's the place with the colorful houses (corrugated steel)..But just be careful around that area because muggings have occured in some backstreets (just stay in the tourist streets)... Other Things to do:

1. Puerto Madero -- hip area with nice restaurants, but may be a little expensive but just nice to walk around the waterfront and see interesting bridge and a sydney opera house-like building
2. Jog at the Ecological reserve in the middle of the city or at the parks of Palermo
3. See the PINK HOUSE - equivalent of the White House of USA - where Evita did her famour speech
4. Visit the tomb of Evita herself -- it is a small tomb but interesting to visit --- nice walk
5. Maybe even visit Uruguay --- just a ride a quick ferry to Colonial de Sacramento (very close and can spend half-day there)

Enjoy and hope this helps (I have more on my BA pages)...Norman :)

Bring comfortable walking shoes - BA's a fantastic city just to walk and and soak up the atmosphere, gorgeous architecture and vibrant city street scene. Lots of suggestions for specifics in VT members pages.

Update I'm in B.A. it's hot! I have been walking for days taking it all in. It has lot's of culture, very nice. This is my second last night. Being here myself I haven't taken in much of the night life as I done speak Spanish (once I return to Canada Spanish classes are a must for my line of business).
Cheers.

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

The working-class neighborhood...

by travelmad478

The working-class neighborhood of La Boca, covering part of BA's waterfront, is full of colorfully painted houses. It might not be the best place to walk around at night, but in the daytime it's a lot of fun.

bitter but healthy!

Yerba Mate is the traditional drink for Argentinians. Its origins come from the gauchos (countryside men)
It smells and looks like green tea but it has a more sophisticated ritual behind a normal tea.
To start with, you have to drink mate through a straw called "bombilla" and the container itself is naturally manufactured.
The content is called "yerba mate" and I have to admit that it is very bitter. It took me 21 years to get to know it. Now, I can't do anything without drinking my everyday mate.
Mate function is vital for Argentinians, being the connection between people. No matter where you go, someone will always offer you a mate. It is like the pipe of peace, you share it with all the people in the place.

Seasonal packing

by TheWanderingCamel

Layers are definitely the way to think, especially if you're visiting in Spring (September, October, November), justifiably the most popular season both for the climate and the effect it has on the city - all those beautiful flowering trees make it an absolute delight. Chilly mornings can turn into surprisingly warm days, and the evenings can cool down quickly.

The same layers are the thing to pack in autumn (March, April, May).

Summer can turn very hot, and the sun can really burn, so a hat's a smart idea.

It rains all year round, so pack a little umbrella or a rain jacket even in the summer.

Finally, winter (June, July, August) - take a look at the photo here. August 2008, Those ladies watching the piper aren't just wearing coats for fun. MrL was there and it was COLD.

Boca kids

by DPando

i had a good experience with these kids ...they were "playing" and kicking themselves as way to have fun... they also had some a pencil and some sheets to draw caricatures from people who accept the deal !! its better this than try to rob on the streets i guess... i accepted and i keep it with me at home....the most exciting moment was when they are waiting for the money and i gave them 10 pesos ! you had to see their faces...they coudnt believe that..because its so much money for them just 3 euros for me and i guessed it worth while for the reason i explained before ..they were so kind really kind

BUENOS AIRES: ONCE

by swesn

If you are in need of an extra duffel bag to toss in all your new shopping, some candles for your seance or witchcraft practice, to replace a missing Buddha, frivolous shopping for cheap clothes and costume jewelleries, etc... head to the area near the Once (pronounced On-Say) Station.

This is roughly bordered by Av Pueyrredon, Av Rivadavia, Av Corrientes and Av Callao. And here is where most of the Chinese shop-keepers had located themselves. And so, here you can find their impossibly cheap and low-quality goods.

If you need items for your handicrafts (be it candle-making, jewellery-making, etc...), this is the place to hunt for such things as well.

Even if you don't need anything, just drop by here for a look-see, to experience the other end of Buenos Aires shopping - trashy shopping. Unimportant things that you need and can afford to buy the cheap stuff
