Buenos Aires travel guide

My husband and I stayed in Buenos Aires for only one night, but it was enough to make us remember where we definitely don’t need to go again. Personally, I’m now in this wonderful town even under torture. It so happened that we had to take a long flight from Ushuaia to Moscow, with lots of connections, one of which was the longest (one day) in the capital of Argentina. So let’s begin.

I can tell you right away that these thoughts should be put out of your head, otherwise you will be very disappointed, however, as it happened with my husband. Secondly, if you book a hotel in the center of the capital, it also does not give you absolutely no guarantees for anything, because all hotels in Buenos Aires are about the same level. You will not get more than “one star” and one star means you have a toilet and a shower.

Now I would like to tell you directly about our experience. Night slowly fell on the city, the youth woke up and started singing and dancing in the streets, with alcohol and not only. Our plane landed after sunset and with the most wonderful thoughts and expectations of beauty took a cab and went in search of our booked hotel. By the way, our choice fell on the most budget option of all proposed. The reason is banal – just one night, we would… read completely.
