as the city tour busy was driving me through, i could sense that it was the posh side of mexico city. international brands, luxurious shops, and embassies were the main feature of this area. commercial ads were even feature hollywood celebrities! perhaps the american touch would signfiy how posh this area was.
there was nothing special really about this area apart from it would be considered the most expensive. i noticed that this part of the town has lost its original mexican touch if you compare it to zocalo and other areas. i don't know. maybe it's because i like to see the cultural touch of each country free of americanism or hollywoodism, and so didn't enjoy it much.
polanco, however, is still near to many attractions, like the Reforma, Condesa and Zona Rosa and they are 10-15 minutes away by metro. anyway, this area is generally good for brand shopping.
Polanco is the high-end neighbourhood in Mexico City. It lies just to the north of Bosque de Chapultepec and is home to luxury boutiques, restaurants, residences and hotels. It is a perfect area to stay in when visiting Mexico City as it is much quieter than the rest of town and has great restaurants and bars. Otherwise, try to make a trip to Polanco to admire the beautiful residential architecture and tree lined streets, and to sample some delicious cuisine.
Guess what - Content to be added soon - I swear. Right now I am just uploading tips to have the topic completed and step by step gonna add the missing stuff, so please stay patient! Also, I am adding still empty tips not to loose anything. Please stay calm, I already know I got quite something to do with that whole lot of work!
This is the only picture I have of Polanco. It's the Vips restaurant, which is the equivalent of the Denny's chain in the States. I was only here at night, so taking pictures wasn't my biggest priority. Sorry!
Polanco is definitely a ritzy, high-priced neighborhood. You'll find fancy boutiques, high-end car dealerships and the city's best dining options here. I walked mostly on the long street, Presidente Masaryk where you'll find anything from Argentine food to Sushi and you'll probably come across many upper class locals enjoying a meal or shopping along this street.
This is one of the best malls in México city, it has a wonderful arquitecture, nice and relaxing ambience. With some of the best designer stores.
