Eight things to do in Buenos Aires


Four places to visit:

  • Reserva Ecologica – Hire a bike in nearby Puerto Madero or San Telmo (both areas worth a walk too) – the latter has a nice market called Feria de San Telmo on Sundays
  • The UN Park to see the Floralis Generica (the supersized flower sculpture that opens and closes)
  • Walk, walk, walk through the many cool neighbourhoods: Recoleta, Palermo, San Telmo (mentioned above) etc.
  • Make a day-trip to Uruguay – specifically Colonia del Sacramento

Four places to eat and drink:

  • Looks like Restó – that back-of-the-architect-association place still exists. It was great when I went. 
  • So many steak houses, so little time – I’d go for Parilla Don Julio again any time… and don’t forget to draw on your Malbec bottle once you’ve finished with it – Address: Guatemala 4691 and Gurruchaga | Palermo Soho, Buenos Aires
  • Empanadas … there’ll be many many places
  • When in Uruguay, not many great places to eat (at least that I found) – but this one was at least quirky: El Drugstore
And your soundtrack? Piazzolla.
