Santiago, Chile

Forth stop on my dream trip around the world

After leaving the continent of North America and Miami I am now on my way to the country of Chile, the flight to Chile will be approximately 8 hours and 30 minutes and will span 6659 kilometers. While in Santiago I Plan to be there for a few days, with the few days that I am there I plan on sightseeing and going to various monuments while spending at least one day at the beach to take in all the sea air. While in Santiago I will be spending the three days at Hotel Bidasoa, this hotel is 4.5 stars and around $242 per night for a regular room. Below are some pictures of the hotel and the airport of Santiago. Flight Cost, $1243

For the first full day that I will spend in Chile I have chosen to look at a few of the famous monuments, churches and landmarks of Santiago. For the first point of interest I have chosen to see I will be seeing the Cerro San Cristobal Hill. The Cristobal hill rises about 800m above the ground and is the second highest point in Santiago, Chile. After I visit the Cristobal hill i will then go have lunch at a traditional Chilean cafe and then go to slightly outside the capital city and go to the Valle Navedo, which is a ski resort near Santiago where i will be doing some skiing during the day and also some skiing at night. I plan to have dinner there and stay on the hill until around 12am. The drive back to my hotel assuming the traffic is not backed up will be around an hour to an hour and a half, i still find it amazing that these mountains are so close to a busy and bustling city.

After my late night last night i have chosen to sleep in a while and instead of having breakfast i will just go to a local cafe and have a late breakfast early lunch type of thing. After that I have chosen to go to the Estadio Nacional Julio Martínez Prádanos which is the stadium which some of the Copa America soccer matches will be held. Although while I am there I will not be viewing any games because there will be none going on at the time, they do allow people to view certain areas of the stadium. I am going to leave for some dinner and am going to go back later to watch some Copa America events that they hold at the stadium when there isn't going on. I am now at the stadium and they are having various events going on within the stadium including dancing shows and various bmx bike events going on at the track which is located in a different section of the stadium. That is all i plan on doing in Santiago today and look forward to spending a day at the beach tomorrow.
