Santiago, Chile’s capital city, is a vibrant city in Latin America just waiting to be discovered. Brightsun Travel offers a great selection of cheap holidays to Santiago, anytime of year. Start your city tour in two of the cities big attractions - Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes and Museo de Arte Contemporáneo - and explore Chilean art works in regularly changing exhibitions. The Centro Gabriela Mistral arts centre hosts almost daily performances and concerts, whilst in the Museo Chileno de Arte Precolombino, you can explore Colombian cultures through the ages. On to La Vega Central, the city’s main market, and you could shop for a dazzling array of fruit and vegetables. And Mercado Central seafood market is a place where you can buy, and taste, some of the best seafood in the city. Then, spend the afternoon relaxing in the city’s fantastic Parque Metropolitan, Santiago’s largest green space, and enjoy gorgeous views of the city and the famous statue, the Virgin Mary, that tops Cerro San Cristóbal.
For the city’s most up and coming restaurants, head to José Victorino Lastarria Street, where you will find gorgeous wine bars and boutique cinemas, plus rooftop cocktail venues serving some of the city’s best drinks. The Tinto Boutique Hotel in Bellavista, one the best neighbourhoods to head at night, is a cool spot, with a roof top bar open to guests and diners. The Barrio Italia is another great corner of the city, where you can shop by day in its many boutiques, and see the evening in dining at one of the neighbourhood’s many open-air restaurants. And at the weekend the Bellavista neighbourhood comes alive with brunch venues that sprawl out onto the pavement. For a weekend trip with a difference, you could travel 25 kilometres outside of town to Cajón del Maipo, where you can escape to the outdoors. Santiago also offers some great ski resorts, like Valle Nevado, with excellent ski runs for all levels.
