Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Let the collections at Museo de Frida Kahlo and Museo Nacional de Antropologia capture your imagination. Get some cultural insight at Bosque de Chapultepec and Museo del Templo Mayor. There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Historic Center (Centro Historico), make a trip to Zocalo, shop like a local with Coyoacan, and admire the landmark architecture of National Palace (Palacio Nacional).

Capital city of the eponymous state, Oaxaca relies heavily on its colonial charm, its core a maze of tree-shaded alleys flanked by photogenic mansions, government buildings, and old churches.
Kick off your visit on the 9th (Fri): explore the ancient world of Monte Alban, then head outdoors with The Water Boils, and then explore the world behind art at Rufino Tamayo Museum of Pre-Hispanic Art. On the 10th (Sat), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take in the spiritual surroundings of Templo de Santo Domingo de Guzman, examine the collection at Museo de las Culturas de Oaxaca, shop like a local with Voces de Copal, take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilica de Nuestra Senora de la Soledad, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Basilica de la Soledad, and finally indulge your thirst for a good beer at Oaxaca Brewing Company.
