It is well known because of its very colorful places and its extended series of canals, which are what remains of the ancient Lake Xochimilco.

Located in the south of Mexico City, Xochimilco is one of the sixteen boroughs of the Mexican Federal District. It is well known because of its very colorful places and its extended series of canals, which are what remains of the ancient Lake Xochimilco.

Xochimilco is a very touristic place in Mexico. It offers exceptional views everywhere. There are a lot of markets where you can find all kind of flowers and plants. This is where you should buy some flowers for your mother, if you want to buy large amounts and cheap.

One of the most tourist attraction is the trajinera ride (Xochimilco boats covered with flowers), where you can spend an entire day through the canals with family or friends. There are always lots of boats selling Mexican food, pictures, mariachi songs, and a lot of things you can´t imagine. Some say Xochimilco is the Mexican Venice.

    Lomography Day Trips: Hangzhou, Zheijang, China

    Located in the Zhejiang province, Hangzhou is known as one of the most beautiful cities in China. I went there following my aunt’s advice. She studied calligraphy in Hangzhou Arts University (杭州美术大学) and told me, "When I sat by the lake, I just understood Chinese painters. They painted what they see, not less."

    Talking about the creation of the world. A big bang, meteors hitting planets, ice age and tectonic breakdancing. The world is an incredible start up and the landscapes, that were created through the elements and time. Sometimes your eyes can still see this amazing process in a timelapse. Such a mystical place is Lake Toba in North Sumatra. Or as the locals call it: Danau Toba.

    5 Noteworthy Architectural Details

    A building is a story of collective effort. The people who dreamed it up and polished every surface are anonymous to many, but their work announces a unique identity. For tourists, architecture is a marker of place, like souvenirs with flags and national costumes. For the camera-lugging traveler, a strong visual statement is what matters most.
