The Chilean capital Santiago is one of the most flourishing in South America. The tallest skyscraper in the continent and extremely busy business center filled with futuristic buildings are located here. The city also boasts beautifully renovated older parts which resemble grand European cities. However, surprisingly, from a visitor's point of view the city, despite its charm, Santiago does not have too much to offer. The reason for that is that it's quite similar to other big capitals and lacks those bits of uniqueness you can find in some more off the beaten path places. Nevertheless, if you're visiting Chile, although I wouldn't recommend that you spend too much time in Santiago (Chile has way more exciting places), it's nice enough as a stopover for a day or two. Take a look at what we saw during our short stay.
