Almost all IgoUgo travelers who have written about Chile’s capital have noted the dearth of “spectacular attractions” like those found in other South American cities—but almost all of them loved Santiago anyway. Plunge through the smog, says one, and you’ll find a city bursting with culture. To see what he means, don’t miss the accounts of two IgoUgo members who just visited and want to convince you to include Santiago in your Chilean vacation.
LenR has two new journals covering Santiago Sightseeing and Santiago Eating and Sleeping. He shares pleasant surprises like an open-air railway museum; the Museo Artequin, built for the Chilean pavilion at the 1889 Paris Exhibition; and Easter Island statues. Plus, he “really enjoyed the restaurants, food, and bars in Santiago.” (So much so that he forgot the name of one of his recommendations, but he tells us how to find it.)
TwoIdiots also included Trendy Santiago in their recent Chile trip. Their top finds include the Central Market (“the deeper we went, the cheaper the price”); the Museo Chileno de Arts Precolombino; and, like LenR, the Barrio Paris-Londres for romance and architectural riches.
Pair this trio of journals with the recent Santiago photos of lamtrc, and we think you’ll be duly impressed.
