1. The Coolest Library “Biblioteca Vasconcelos”
in Mexico City
It’s called “Biblioteca Vasconcelos” and the best library in Mexico. The rare cool designed shelves make visitors feel next level of human architecture. It’s free to access (of course it’s a library) and not far away from central Mexico City. You can have a break here, read books, PC works, taking photographs and whatever you like with keeping being quiet.

Everywhere can be great photo spot tho, sadly for photographers what librarians decline people to take photographs by a “Camera” for some reasons. But you can take photos by your phones. I wish I had iPhone 7 at the moment.

3. Mexican National Exciting Sport “Lucha Libre”
in Mexico City
“Lucha Libre” it is national Mexican sport, and to see it is probably the most common thing to do in Mexico City. It’s a marshal arts but more like a show, and people playing fight for audience. The heat from the stage makes audience very excited..!
There is a big association of “Lucha Libre”, is “CMLL”. There are 2 big arenas. The one is “Arena Coliseo” which is opened on every Sunday night, and the other one is “Arena Mexico” which is opened on every Tuesday and Friday night. The great seat will be about 400 Pesos, but the cheap one will be just about 50 Pesos. You can get the tickets at the arenas.
The show is opened in the night around 20:00, and it will be bit risky to use metro in the night in Mexico City. UBER is one the options to go and back for safe transportations. By the way, it’s prohibit to bring your camera into the arenas, so don’t bring your heavy big camera stuffs.
4. The Huge Pyramids Teotihuacan Remains
The Avenue Of The Dead
At Teotihuacan, the 2 huge pyramids have been standing there since ages ago. (2nd century BC)
One is called “Pyramid Of Sun”, and the other one is “Pyramid Of Moon”. They are not only “huge things”, but also the accurately architecture works with improving the highly astronomy skills will be impressive you. We still do not sure why the pyramids are there, exactly when, and how. Archaeologists mentioned there were about 20 million people living, but they were suddenly disappeared… WHY? Those historic and mysterious remains have been fascinating people around the world.

7. Wired Weird Mysterious “The Island Of The Dolls”
When you take public transportations for 30 minutes from central, you are going to have an opportunity to be on a boat for slow adventure of the beautiful historic interesting water city, Xochimilco.
It is a water city like Venice (more wildness), and people use boats to go around as a transportation. People live in houses which are beside the lands of river. You can take a boat tour, and it’ll be so good just seeing the lives going of people, animals, birds and more. Just relax, and take your time.
However, Many people are afraid to go there actually because there is a really “wired weird spot”. It’s called “The Island Of The Dolls”. If you take a longer tour (4 hours), you are going to be the wired place. It’s all up to you…! You can avoid the wired place, and can enjoy for only beautiful side.
