Xochimilco in Mexico is listed as a World Heritage Site. The most impressive thing is the ghost doll Island introduced in the travel book. A thousand ghost dolls hang on trees. There are many tourists on weekends. From Mexico City, they take the subway, Blue Line 2 to the last stop, Tasquena, and then take the light rail to Xochimilco. After getting off, they walk forward for about 5 minutes to the wharf. There are police on the roadside, chartered boats are about 500 pesos, which can be found. People carpool together, the cost is equal, many families charter boats for parties, boats on the river sell flowers, drinks, food, small gifts, tricks will slip over, there is a section of the river is dirty, like a foul ditch.
Take Metro Line 2 (Blue Line) in the direction of TASQUENA to the terminal, and transfer to the light rail, which is the starting point of the light rail, heading for XOCHIMILCO (Hodgmilco). Light iron needs to buy cards on machines, but can only be bought with coins. Because it is a price and outbound without brushing, so many people can use a card. Let's use one for both of us. EMBARCADERO TURISTICO is clearly marked on the light rail when it gets off at the terminal. It walks to the terminal for more than ten minutes. There are many colorful boats, colorful hulls, blue hulls and some cabins with tables and chairs. Each ship has its own name, and one is named Picasso. The river we saw was not big, and no tourists took boats, so we took pictures and left. Walking a short distance to another pier, the scale is not as large as the first. According to the data, Hokimirco is an ancient Indian language, meaning "land for planting flowers" where man-made canals and islands are located. Out of the pier, we want to go to the flower fair. Asked a lot of people, and then a girl understood what we meant and told us that far away, we hit the 20 pesos to the flower market. We saw two streets, basically in front of the booth, behind the greenhouse, selling large plants, potted plants, vegetable seedlings, and gardening-related products, did not see precious flowers and plants. Later, each person returned to the light rail station by 4 pesos on the minibus, with XOCHIMILCO attached to the front of the minibus.
The canal is for carrying flowers. So there are many flower gardens along the river. There are also cafes. On weekends, local people also call friends to come here. There are four or five bands in white dresses. It can be played on board. It's very lively to sing and dance.
Hodgmirco in Mexico City is a water town in Mexico, where the river is vertical and horizontal, the two sides of the river are densely forested, villages are scattered in the woods, and the natural environment of birds, flowers and fragrance is very good. You can choose to travel here by boat. It's very relaxing and comfortable.
Mexico has a lot of flowers, vegetables and fruits because of the great temperature difference and the abundant sunshine and rain. This is an impression that Mexico feels friendly when it comes to this city. Although the faces of the city people are not friendly, the bright colors give people a lot of sunshine.
The _coolest_ party scene ever. You rent a boat and head out to this huge network of canals--where everyone else has rented boats and filled them with many more people and festivities than you have. You just glide around between them, and you can flag down the boats with mariachis on, and they'll play a few songs for you. Just heads-up to a couple of common scams: boat captains will try to charge you per person, but the fee is per boat, and posted everywhere. Also, there are boats that prepare food and will serve it on your boat--these tend to overcharge tourists, so set the price to start. On the other hand, your captain will get you a cooler full of beers and other drinks, and at least in our case, priced these fairly. You pay at the end for what you drank. Oh, and one last thing: don't worry when you get down to the docks and it seems like nothing's happening and you might be all lonely on your boat. The party is up around the corner--you'll get there!
