Santiago

Santiago — Santiago is experiencing a rebirth. Once no more than a place to bed down on your way to the nearby Andes or Chilean wine country, the city has finally hit its stride. The opening of a glossy cultural center in 2006 marked the beginning of a newfound pride – a pride that has continued to evolve through the city's burgeoning culinary, shopping, and nightlife scenes. While hints of the city’s 16th-century Spanish roots remain in mission-style buildings like the Palacio la Moneda and the old European grandeur of churches like Santo Domingo, shiny skyscrapers and a clean, efficient metro system reveal the city's rapid economic growth.

Why Go

To experience the metropolitan hotbed of Chilean culture – nouvelle cuisine, trendy neighborhoods, boutique shopping, hard-hitting nightlife – just as it’s coming into its own.
