The best of Santiago is far from the chaotic city centre. The residential neighboroods of Providencia, Nunoa and of course Bella Vista is where you can slowly but inesorably let the hidden beauty of this city grown into uou.

If you're into beautiful vistas, wander around Cerro Santa Lucía. Check out the street graffiti scene. Pick up some spice packets of merkén or merquén at Mercado Tirso de Molina. Just be really vigilant in Santiago. The back of my purse got sliced open in Santiago near an ATM. (Luckily the thieves didn't get anything.)
