Chile's northern desert contains great mineral wealth, principally copper. The relatively small central area dominates in terms of population and agricultural resources, and is the cultural and political center from which Chile expanded in the late 19th century when it incorporated its northern and southern regions. Southern Chile is rich in forests and grazing lands, and features a string of volcanoes and lakes. The southern coast is a labyrinth offjords, inlets, canals, twisting peninsulas, and islands.
Experience Santiago by night at Bali Folk Show, discover their different foods, wines, live music, and different types of folkloric dances of the Chilean regions.
