My friend Laura Low Ah Kee travelled to Beunos Aires and fell head over heels in love with that city (take a look at her photos and you’ll understand why). Here, she shares some of her favourite places to see, things to do and boutiques to shop in the Argentinian capital.
Enamorarse de Buenos Aires! It’s Soho, NYC infused with European sophistication. Beautiful people. Amazing shopping. Fantastic art. Delicious wine and Latin energy. What’s not to love?
stay: Palermo Soho Area. Rent an apartment or stay in a hotel.
happy hour: My favourite hour. Drink fantastic wine, lounge on couches and people watch at M O T T Cocina de Mercato.
tango: La Boca. A must-see touristy area with brightly painted buildings and dancers performing on the street.
history: Pay your respects at Evita’s grave in a cemetery in Recoleta.
eat: meat at La Cabrera.
spot lots of tight, short skirts: Asia de Cuba is the night club to be at.
Get out of the city: Stay at the Hotel Sainte Jeanne in Mar Del Plata, a beach town. Go to the spa, lounge, smile, eat, make friends, make love. It’s majestic. You may never leave but if you do, shopping is just outside.
Oh man! I’m booking my plane ticket to Buenos Aires right now… in my dreams. Thanks Laura for giving me the travel bug and for sharing all these gorgeous spots. I’m obsessed!
