World Trade Centers went up in New York and Mexico City at the same time. For years New York could boast ‘mine is bigger than yours’, but the one here lasted a bit longer. It’s home to offices, of course. And a Cinemex complex. A Sears store is added on. And many exhibitions are staged here. That was the purpose of our visit, to see a travel fair, but we decided the 50 peso entrance fee was exorbitant. I did check the people leaving to see if they had bags of goodies to justify the entry price, but their bags looked empty.
The star attraction for most tourists is Belinnis and the Skybar, seeing as there is no tourist viewing level. Shame really….it was the tallest building in Mexico City for more than 30 years till Torre Mayor went up. We didn’t visit the Skybar this time. It’s a little pricey I believe, so it’ll have to wait for a more special occasion. Instead, I amused myself taking photos of planes going past the WTC. Click here to see them.
