A vast, dazzling megacity, Mexico City has all too often been overlooked by international explorers in search of urban elegance and charm. But having quietly cleaned up its act over the past few years, it's starting to attract attention in all the right ways - and indeed, with its superb historic downtown, a highly dynamic contemporary art scene and a new wave of world-class restaurants, bars and hotels, it's beginning to emerge as a must-see world city. Complex and cosmopolitan, architecturally eclectic and unexpectedly green, Mexico City reflects the past and present at every turn, from the Aztec ruins at its heart to Latin America's tallest building; and from its classic cantinas to the hip hang-outs of its fashionable neighbourhoods. And Mexico City continues to transform itself, leaving visitors charmed, surprised and with the inescapable sense of a city whose finest hour is still around the corner. *Mexico City sights *Mexico City hotels *Mexico City restaurants *Mexico City bars *Mexico City shops *Mexico City maps
