Mercado San Miguel for the beautiful colours and the great atmosphere, Shopping in Malasaña, Visiting park de Retiro which is incredible, and the rastro market on sundays.
Do’s and don’ts in Madrid: (Ex: Tipping: yes/ no, public transport tips, safety tips etc.):
Recommended to take the Metro, easiest and fastest. Uber! for late night transport. Make sure to not let your bag out of your site when you walk in the centric areas.
How much do you spend on an average night out on the town?
It varies between 15€ - 60€ (cheeper when it doesnt include going to a restaurant before)
Which Madrid shops do you hit up when you’re itching for something new?
The shops in Malasaña. The shoe shops in calle fuancaral. I also like to thrift shop at humana stores sometimes. Another life saver here is Zara which for me has great fashionable items at reasonable prices, Although you will almost never find me in the one in Calle Gran via because it's so packed. I reccomend on going to the one next to Plaza del Sol.
