Buenos Aires is the place to visit not for the sights but to learn about the people's way of life. It is a definite must to watch a Tango Show, Eat Argentinian steak and go to an Argentinian Bar/Club.
Buenos Aires is a very cosmopolitan city with plenty to see and do. I was there in winter and enjoyed the sights and attractions, but I can imagine it would be even better in Spring or Summer.
People are very uptight and every second person (locals and officials from Tourist Information centre) met advised to hold on to my camera and bags at all time or not to go here and there.
Lots of underlying social issues, streets are dirty and almost 99% of the people don't speak English. They are not rady for international tourists.
BA is an awesome city and you need at least a week there as there is so much to do. I recommend seeing recelotta cometary, la boca, palermo, going to the football at river plate,
Buenos Aires is a big city and whilst transport is good travellers would be well advised to plan their itinerary carefully before embarking on the exploration of the city.
The must sees are covered in the guide books. Money can be changed in Florida street but requires caution as some dud notes are about. Usual caution re personal belongings needs to be exercised particularly in the tourist areas. A definite no go area is around the old port area which you may cross if going to Caminito Street in La Boca, if walking stick to the main road and avoid the back streets.
Buenos Aires is a comfortable city that is easy to get around. Things start early and restaurants are open till after midnight as they usually have a break from 4 to 8pm.
9 Dining is great value for money. Lots to see of interest. If you stay centrally in Microcentro or Puerto Madero and enjoy walking it is easy to enjoy a wander around the Plaza de Mayo, San Telmo and Recolta which will take in many of the city's main attractions like San Telmo markets on a Sunday (not to be missed),the Recoleta cemetery where Eva Peron is buried, the Obelisco, Theatre Colon (it is worth it to take a tour), Casa de Gobiemo museum, and the waterfront. Ofcourse don't miss doing a tango tour one night. The smaller establishments offer a reasonable price and a great show. And it is worth doing a city tour that will take you to the colourful area of La Boca. Make sure you have a reliable camera.
the city is immense with lots to do and see. I enjoyed the restaurants and clubs. I thought the people I met were very helpful and nice with perfect advice
BA is a great city to walk around in. Be careful if you want to eat dinner early. Check out the sometimes "unusual" restaurant opening/closing times.
I never felt unsafe in BA, but got a bad feeling from the people offering rides into the city from EZE airport. When ordering a steak, take the option of a 1/2 portion if available.
A fascinating city which relies heavily upon its historical past. Great public transport allowing visitors to easily get around to enjoy the culture.
A bit warm but a great place to visit.
Good very good night life till morning 7 am on weekends, friendly people. But not thta great for shopping , cothes , food are costly.
Roads are big and taxi driver are honest.
Very interesting city , lots of history , lovely old buildings , beautiful tree line streets,nice shopping areas , good restaurants
Buenos Aires offers a wealth of history, shopping and excellent food options. It's a city that's best explored by foot and by taxi.
the city is very crowd, no trees in the downtown, and many the homeless guys, travelers should avoid being alone in the evening.
the money exchange in BA is a mess, the bank offers 1:5 for the exchange of USD to pesos, but you will find the "gangbue" guys all along the street give a much generous exchange rate like 1:8, when making the deal with them, travelers should pay much attention to the fake money.
Buenos Aires is a great city to be visited - easy to walk around, tons of things to do, friendly people and amazing food.
Not to be missed in South America, specially as a romantic gateway for couples.
A large busy city . Enjoyed their tango show + dinner.No problem travelling on their metro system. As with most city .
..caution needed to counter pickpocket attempts in major tourist attractions . felt safe overall.
Be careful with your belongings. Purse stolen 2nd day into holidays. Should have been more aware. Please take care.
Buenos Aires is a very large city. I liked the tango shows and the cemetery and the food too. People are friendly.
It´s like every big city lots of cars, busses and taxis. You just need 1-2 days to see the whole city.
I surely can recommend Buenos Aires. It is a very lively and sparkeling city. It is easy to travel with the metro.
Visit the Puerto Madero and Colonia Del Sacramento (Uruguay) by boat (1h trip) Visit cementary of La Recoleta, eat icecream at Freddo, and visit the colourfull houses in El Camenito (EL Boca) I fell in love with,....Buenos Aires.
Too expensive. Really bad taxis. Public transit is good. Interesting place but, in world standards, disappointing.
It was "okay" but not a great as they make out.
its a nice city reminds me alot of big cities in Spain. easy to go around you can ren bikes or electrical moppets.
which is a nice easy way to see the whole city.
We visited Buenos Aires in June and it was freezing. You will need a heavy winter coat and scarf and gloves.
Next time I would visit in Spring or summer. I would recommend you visit over a weekend as a lot of the markets etc are open on a Sunday
Beautiful city but might be dangerous at night. Better to have local show aroud. Not stay along at night.
A city that needs to be discovered. On the surface- not as friendly, but once you dig in, worth your while.
modern city then the south part of Argentina.BUT ppl there is unfriendly,need take care of yr belongings.
