Island of Dolls draws tourists to Mexico

Hanging doll installation, created by a local man 50 years ago, is one of the unusual sites in Mexico City.

    Mexico is known for its architectural wonders built by ancient civilizations.

    Recently, however, a more unusual sort of attraction is drawing in tourists.

    The so-called 'Island of Dolls', with hundreds of baby figues hanging in trees, has been drawing tourists to Mexico City's Xochimilco canals.

    Al Jazeera’s Rachel Levin reports from Mexico City.
