Santiago’s Parque Arauco mall is huge. Set on two levels, there are more than 20 restaurants, and you’ll see global brands like Starbucks, Nine West, and the Gap dotted along its two floors. There’s also a luxury stores district where you can shop at the likes of Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana, Burberry, Mont Blanc, and Emporio Armani, and there’s an entertainment zone that includes a cinema with 3D, 4D, and premium screens, an ice-rink, a bowling alley, and Mori Cultural Center and Theater.
Parque Arauco is also home to an outdoor boulevard with restaurants and stores. And after 9pm in the evening, live music performances often take place al fresco, too. Other notable spots include Chilean department store giants like Falabella, Ripley, and Almacenes Paris, and Tottus supermarket.
To reach Santiago’s Parque Arauco by public transport, take the subway to Escuela Militar (line 1), then transfer to bus 11 or 20 — they stop at the mall. Foreign visitors can pick up cards with exclusive discounts and benefits at over 100 of the mall’s stores, restaurants, and entertainment options.
