Buenos Aires city life
Buenos Aires is known for its highly gifted writers, artists, musicians and filmmakers. You can grab a cup of coffee at the historic Café Tortoni in the evening or head to Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires (MALBA), a private art museum that was designed by two young Argentine architects. Head to Palermo, the best neighbourhood to experience the city life in Buenos Aires; grab a drink at Plaza Palermo or visit the botanical garden that is almost 170 years old and has more than 5000 species of plants.
