Mexico's sprawling capital is making headlines as the newest urban playground for hip globe-trotters. Its trendy (and affordable) restaurants, freewheeling nightlife, and outstanding museums are just a few of the things responsible for this buzz. Nowhere is the transformation more obvious than around the central square, where long-neglected streets have been repaved with cobblestones and lined with trees.
Now people even stroll here at night -- unheard of a few years ago. Some people are daunted by the city's size, but the clean, speedy subway system makes it easy to get to even the most distant neighborhoods.
What about the old problems, things have improved but like anywhere else you still need to keep your wits about you. Traffic? About the same. Smog? Dramatically better. The new Mexico City is a breath of fresh air.
Founded by the Aztecs as Tenochtitlán in 1325, Mexico City is both the oldest and the highest (7,347 ft) metropolis on the North American continent. And with nearly 22 million inhabitants, it is the most populous city in the world.
It is Mexico's cultural, political, and financial core, braving the 21st century but clinging to its deeply entrenched Aztec heritage, that makes it so appealing.
