    One must visit this place at the beginning of their Santiago trip. It helps you to get your bearings of the city better. Geared towards tourists, there are lovely cafes and bars spread out all over, along with a much needed 'cambio'. The security personnel at Patio Bellavista are extremely helpful. Much appreciated.

    I bought some llama wool here for a gift. A good Chilean friend took me here and said this was very good wool at a good price. I had no idea, but the gift recipient really liked it.

    Located in a nice residential area of Santiago, very safe, not very crowded, large (paying) parking. Ideal for a stroll or serious shopping, including a large supermarket Jumbo, with cafes for a pause, and a some cinemas too.

    Neighborhood Patronato is a typical neighborhood of Recoleta, this is known as a specific place to buy clothes for everyone's pocket and make it modern. This is near the Vega Central (main fruit and vegetable market). Within the neighborhood you can find various restaurants, Chileans, Arabs, Koreans, Chinese, etc. It is a very good place to spend the afternoon with your friends, family or whoever you want.

    We are here in Santiago with a group of MBA students. We come once a year and this time we visited the Mappin store where almost every one of us discovered a piece of art (map) that we loved. I personally purchased the street dog map of Chile. Here’s what is especially cool about this business: 1) it supports artists by commissioning modern work, 2.) it shines a beautiful light on the “old” and “new” Chile by showing off attributes of Chile that are sometimes overlooked and 3.) it offers meaningful (beautiful) souvenirs to take home. I can’t wait to hang my map on my wall. They also have a really cool concept called “travel shot” which lets you store places you’ve visited in a digital way using magnets - have them explain it to you while you drink an excellent espresso which they also serve in the store! Los Condes is a lovely area of Santiago to visit. If you can’t get to the retail store, check out their online retail options.

    A myriad of vendors can be found lining the streets in this area, selling anything and everything, including live poultry. Prices are very economical, but keep in mind that it's quite crowded and when I visited on a weekday afternoon, found it hard to move because there were so many people. Might be interesting for those wanting to see the "real" Santiago and is easily accessible by metro (Estacion Central, line 1).

    Three story local shopping mall with a food court on the third floor. We visited while staying at the Best Western Marina, which is about two blocks away. Mostly a variety of midscale small shops by US standards. Kid friendly. My SO enjoyed shopping for leather purses.

    Located in the former Larrain Zanartu Palace, this mall contains a historical display on the ground floor, with the original walls and doors. There are three floors, with a very large food court on the upper level, which has free WiFi. I did have to walk around to find a stable connection, but once found, the connection was good. The mall is relatively small and much more suited for stopping by for a bite to eat or for a coffee, as opposed to shopping. Metro: Plaza de Armas.

    Great variety of wines and prices, which means everybody can find what they are after. Shopkeeper was very attentive and spoke fluent English! We had a nice discussion about the wines in Slovakia and Chile.

    Bought some chocolate dipped orangettes, they also have some made with grapefruit instead of orange peel (very unusual and nice, less sweet more tart flavor). Got some almond cookies as well. All of them outstanding flavors. Dark chocolate and milk chocolate varieties. Sugar free options available. Lovely idea for a special gift. They also have macarons.

    Don't be confused with Mercado De Abastos Tirso De Molina which is across the street from this market. I think one reviewer a couple reviews down from me in English is talking about that market, because that one has an upstairs. La Vega, as far as I know, is only one level.

    La Vega has a very local feel and isn't as big or touristy as the other markets in Santiago. One side is mostly meat for sale. Usually heaps of raw meat doesn't bother me, but walking through the narrow aisles and seeing all the pig heads and other cuts of meat was a bit much for me.

    The other side has little eatery stalls. There doesn't appear to be names on the places or menus. The food was really good, typical Chilean dishes and cheap!

    Clean pay toilets in the market for 300.
