This year, broaden your horizons more and travel to far-fetched places you'd never thought you'd set foot in. Forget about the highly overrated countries and cities tourists usually go to and opt for some under-mentioned places full of excitement and adventure.
To start off your travel bucket list this year, why not go to Chile? Located in South America, travelers are often skeptic on what to discover in Chile, but most of them are surprised by all the fun activities and sights in store for them in this beautiful country.
Travelers with varying taste can experience all of what they love-Chile style. Top experiences in this country include trekking in the beautiful national park of Parque Nacional Torres del Paine, discovering Easter Island (Rapa Nui), and trying out the local nightlife.
Because of the sheer amount of experiences waiting for you in Chile, you might want to stay here for 3 or more days for a full Chilean adventure. Costs depend on what adventure type you're willing to go for, and for accommodation, Airbnbs, swanky hotels and budget hostels are abundant in Chile.
While you're here, why not go the world's largest swimming pool? Located in The Crystal Lagoon at San Alfonso del Mar resort in central Chile, this massive pool by the beach is over 20 Olympic-sized swimming pools.
In Chile, you can also enjoy top-notch skiing during the summer. Between June-August is the best time to go skiing in Chile, and several ski resorts are open for guests near Santiago, the main city. But if you prefer the ocean waves, then you can expect high-quality surfing at the beaches of Pichilemu. Every year, people flock all over at Punta De Lobos for international surfing competitions.
The food scene in Chile also is highly interesting. Mixed with a little bit of Spanish and Creole influence, top local foods you should try when visiting include Choripan (Chilean hot dog), Chupe Muriscos (thick seafood soup) and locos (scallops with baked potatoes). For drinks, the local reds at Chile are to die for, but you should also try their traditional drink, Pisco Sour.
There is so much to do and discover in this beautiful country in South America. So this 2017, make sure to include Chile in your travel bucket list.
