Chile is the longest country in South America stretching 2,653 miles from the north to the south and only 110 miles from the east.

You can’t visit everything in a couple of days or even a week.
Prepare for a long night of wine tasting.
A trip to Chile is not complete without experiencing some night clubbing or simply wine tasting with friends.

Bring extra money.
Like many other South American countries, Chiles is an expensive country so make sure you have more savings when you go here.
