Santiago, Chile

Plazas, parks, and fountains share space with historical architecture,
street performers and urban photographers in Chile’s buzzy rising capital of Santiago. Underneath it all, an ultramodern metro system whisks residents to and from work and play. It is this mix of old and new, neo-Baroque architecture and glass towers, haute cuisine and streetside sopapillas that makes Santiago what it is today.

Upscale neighbourhood of Las Condes, known affectionately as

'Sanhattan', is particularly worth a visit for alfresco bars and world-class restaurants. Throughout the city, luxury hotels offer opulent service and as for food, the buzz around Peruvian cuisine is so loud you can hear it globally, but nowhere clearer than at home.
