    >Hows Mexico City?
    I’ve been there several times and really love the place, apart from the air quality, which is supposedly improving but still not great for much of the year. I was apprehensive about the place at first, but it’s been getting safer for years and has always been at least somewhat safer than its reputation. It’s huge and has some of nearly everything, and it’s more sophisticated than you probably expect for a huge swathe of the city; only a minority of parts of town, at least in the central area, are developing-world sketchy.

    >Hows the mogging scene there?
    I don’t know WTF this is, but knowing SighSee, I assume it has to do with getting laid. Go out at night in Condesa or Roma Norte and perhaps you can party with fresas (bourgeoise girls) out clubbing. But if you’re not already attractive and stylish in a way that appeals to women with money at home, don’t expect to blow anyone away. At least in the nicer parts of town, nobody is looking for a green card, and half of them have more money than you probably do.

      CDMX has become the trendy "it" place to be sort of like Tokyo in some circle in New York, a bunch of artsy people and bankers I know are going. They just released the Michelin star guide in Mexico as well. As for the mogging scene, depends on where you are, some areas you will be around people who basically own a ton of texas, California and new mexico: they are rich as frick so your ameribucks wont do much.

      All depends on the rains. I think it rained early this year.

      You really trust mexicans enough to work down there. i have lived in that shithole country and around that shitbag people and let me tell you something, they are the worst people in the world.

      They will not pay you, they will not respect you and you will be robbed at least once. Dont trust anyone down there, in fact dont even establish any close relationships with mexicans and latinos, they easily thee most untrustworthy people in the world. Boycott that terrible country/people.

      I only got robbed by the police in Mexico, when I foolishly slept in my car on a quiet city street, got woken up by cops, and handed them a bag containing my wallet and other personal items for "inspection" as demanded. My business dealings with Mexicans on the street were often curt, but I never really worried about getting ripped off, overcharged or scammed.

            Hi anon, im from Guadalajara, i recommend you to not be around mercado San Juan de Dios after 7pm, if you want to be out at night stick to areas like Chapultepec but don't leave the main avenue.
            Things you MUST try
            Tejuino, torta ahogada, jericalla and carne en su jugo from karnes garibaldi, they have the record guiness to the fastest service, i hope you enjoy my town <3

                at night it gets a little dangerous the more you leave the Chapultepec area and get close to the street where the train is. But is mostly tourist in that area.

    Mexican here.
    >Hows
    Busy as frick.
    >transport
    In general its really cheap, our subway costs 5 pesos (like a quarter of a dollar) and it covers pretty much the whole city.
    On that regard the whole city and a great part of the metropolitan area is connected via Subway (metro), Electric Train, Suburban Train and "Metrobus" so you can move kinda freely.
    our subway is usually clogged as hell, fast yes, but good luck using Lines 2, 3 and 9 during office/school hours without being crushed to death.
    >public bus and similar
    something between indian tier and new yorker tier regarding user population. the city's vehicular traffic is an all time issue, no matter where you are.
    >mogging
    This is a very interesting topic, before 2020 the city had very well defined detroit-tier areas that, unless you knew exactly where you were going you avoided them at all costs but since pur president let all the sudamerican migrants come in the whole city is full to the brim with homeless venezuelan, bolivian and peruan immigrants that sadly launched the robberies to the skies and nowadays you see beggars everywhere, be careful.
    anything else you need to know? i can give you intel about pretty much the whole city

        >Avoid
        if you stick to tourist areas you'll be fine, but if your intention is to know less known places and/or "hidden gems" stay the frick away from:
        >Tacubaya (we have a saying for this since the late 70s for a reason)
        >La Merced
        generally this place is kinda quiet since its one of the largest Mercados (and one of the oldest) on one side and one of the largest red districts on the whole country on the other side, as I said lately the area has been a focus of south american immigrants that do not respect the customs of the area that may try to mug you. But if you want a cheap as frick prostitute (as low as 15 dollaroodos and even lower) just remember, dont act suspicious and no fricking cameras on the streets or the pimps/locals may get upset.
        >Ecatepec
        >Colonia Buenos Aires
        >La Vicente Guerrero
        Those are some places that I would try to avoid.
        Also on top of what this anon here

        -U.S. Mexico City National Cementery, San Rafael.

        said I strongly recommend you:
        El Museo del Chocolate
        La Villa
        Pantheon Dolores (to check the Rotonda de los Hombres Ilustres)
        Palacio de Bellas Artes (my favourite place in the whole damn world)
        El Museo del Juguete
        Palacio de Mineria
        Museo Diego Rivera
        Chapultepec Park, our equivalent to NY's Central Park, its spliced in 3 section and houses:
        >Castillo de Chapultepec
        A must go place.
        >Chapultepec Zoo
        >Museo de Antropologia e Historia
        >Papalote Museo del Niño
        A good place to visit in general but its focused on kids
        Museo de Electricidad
        among a few other things

        Mexico City is one of the cities with he most museums on the whole world (i think it hold the record until recently) and they're as varias as you can imagine, there's a Museum Museum.
        Let me know if you want a more extensive list of stuff, or even better, what kind of things you like, I may try to list stuff that may be relevant to you.
        In general just try to not be that one tourist, otherwise street merchants will try to take advantage of you, or worse, thieves.

          this is a great list, thanks man.
          Me and my gf like outdoor things, like botanic gardens, so we will definitely be going to Chapultepec.

          Is it worth taking a day tour to Teotihuacan? We are looking at a half day guided trip there, including a visit to Guadalupe. We are also looking at maybe doing a day trip to Taxco/Santa Prisca with a group. Is it worth doing a day trip? We are also considering Izta-Popo.

      I have a map with the location of all the pre-Hispanic ruins in Mexico.
      I think that 2 days in Mexico City are enough if you only care about pre-Hispanic things, but I think there are also interesting places nearby, like Cantona, Teotenango, Xochicalco, Cholula or Tula.

    Getting your shit stolen is very likely if you walk around flaunting. Getting laid is whatever

    But in general, why would you go to CDMX? It's the closest we have to a Hive City in the world. Cyberpunk dystopian with all the shitty parts and no cool bionic upgrades. Food is expensive and shitty. Maybe if you're gonna be on the really really expensive part of the city rubbing elbows with narcos.

    Mexico has cool places, beautiful people and good food

    Just not in Mexico City, it's a Skaven den piece of shit and every other place detects when their people is nearby because how they speak and walk, always with double intentions. They city is unironically run by narcos, commies and israelites, actual israelites, and the air is toxic to any human. Not to the DFctuoso, because they already adapted to cholera and food poisoning, so air with lead won't kill them, just drop their IQ levels once again, but won't notice either.

    And it's a metropolis, has everything you want from a city, yet you don't really want to go anywhere or can't. 3 hour drives is the norm. Moving through the metro is the best bet.

    If you really REALLY have to go you don't walk into the police. Never do contact with them. If you get robbed maybe you could contact somebody but 90% they're not gonna help not because they are corrupt (they are) but because they're dumb asses and the worst kind of people are CDMX police officers.

        Nuke CDMX and Mexico becomes world power. Most tourists don't know this, but CDMX is the biggest, fattest leech in the country. Those cute 5 pesos subway rides? Subsidized with tax money from the north. Entire neighborhoods don't pay utility bills, and if they are pressured into it, they degenerate into a zombie horde (they have taken substations in the past, this never makes it to the news).

        Nuke it and make GDL/MTY capital. Half our problems would be gone overnight.
