Chile, South America, Visited on Backpacking Budget

Santiago de Chile in Pictures

I was in Santiago de Chile for three days, I have to say it was a nice city. Maybe not my favorite. Then I didn’t have time to fall in love with the city either. I went on a city walking tour, which is always a great way to get to know a new city. We walked around in different Neighborhoods and got the feeling of the Santiago City life.

 

I think my favorite things in the city was cheap sushi, the viewing point at the city mountain – San Cristobal Hill, and Bellavista Barrio with the selection of restaurants and nightlife. The best trip was the winery of the famous Castillo de diablo, perfect for a mid-day trip with some wine and great scenery. What I didn’t like was the metro, people were a bit more touchy than they are in Buenos Aires. I did survive, people are not afraid of give you a push. So strange for me. Anyway I have to come back to Santiago and visit more wineries and Valparaíso. A big thanks to Juan that let me hang out with him and his friends in Santiago for the night. Last time I was hanging out with Juan was in Great Barrier Reef in Australia 2014. It was fun to be in his home city and see him in his environment. Also big thanks for the ride to the airport.
