Sawasdee Krub Hello everyone, welcome to “Guruguru Tourism Information” and my name is Dew My name is San But why Guruguru Better I’ll show you the video So today, we are going to talk about one of the countries from South America How much do you know about South America Hmm… Not much, actually nothing… Don’t you have any Tourism Geography class? Yes, I do with who? Ajarn Mine but actually I don’t go to class that much Okay, me neither, let’s get to know about it together Okay now, I’ll give you some clue of the country It’s the longest country from North to South in the world Can you guess? Hm.. Brazil? Close enough Argentina? NO! Do you know “Moai”? Ah, yes, yes. It’s in Easter Island Yes, where is it? In the sea But… What country? Chile right? Chile Good, finally Okay now, let’s learn about it’s location together The flag of Chile, otherwise known as the
“Estrella Solitaria” or “The Lone star” is made up of two unequal bands of white and
red with a blue square in the upper-left hoist side with a single five point star in the
middle of it. The star commonly represents the guidance
towards progress and honor. The blue box represents the sky and ocean. The white band represents the snow covered
Andes and mountains. And the red stand for the blood of those who
fought for the country And that’s about it. Moving on! Ok. This is where things get really fun. Because there are virtually no countries that
have the same types of parameters as Chile. Chile is located on the southwestern coast
of the South American continent bordered by Argentina, Peru and Bolivia. At around 4,300 km or 2,700 miles. Chile is the world’s longest country by territory
length, north to south and is also one of the narrowest land countries. The average width being about 177 km or 110
miles. The broadest point by Antofagasta being only
356 kilometers and the narrowest by Llapel at a measly 90
kilometers in width. The country is divided into 15 regions each
region is assigned a name with a roman numeral, north to south. The only exception is the Santiago Metropolitan
region as the capital, which has its own designation under RM or “Región Metropolitana”. The numerals system used to be easy,
it was just up and down 1-13 until in 2006 two more regions were added. Los Ríos in the south at number 14 and Arica
& Parinacota at number 15. Let’s take one minute to see all the regions
in Chile. Things that really stands out in this country
is Easter Island, one of the moneymaker in Chile Easter Island is like the Hawaii of Chile,
world-famous for being one of the strangest places on Earth with petroglyphs and ancient
unexplained Moai statues created by the ancient Rapa Nui peoples that adorn the entire island. For the famous figures in Chile, we are going
to talk about Fernando González – Tennis player Fernando González is the only Chilean
to win gold, silver and bronze medals at the Summer Olympics Now, I started to realize about Ajarn Mine lecture Next to the Physical Geography As we mentioned before, the Landscape, Chile
is one of the longest and narrowest countries on the planet, bordering Peru in the north,
Bolivia and Argentina in the east, the Antarctic in the south, and the Pacific Ocean in the
west, along its 4,300 km coastline or 2,700 miles About 80% of the Chilean landscape is made
up of mountains, including the snow-capped mountains of the Andes, the transverse ranges,
and the coastal ranges. Loa is the longest river in Chile with a length
of 440 km. The river flows from the Andean ranges through
the Atacama Desert to the Pacific Ocean. The river is an important water source for
the riverine communities and a home to a number of fish species such as the shrimp. Bío-Bío is Chile’s second longest river
covering a distance of 380 km. It is also the widest river in Chile. the river flows from lakes Icalma and Galleutué
and flows through the Andean valley before draining into the Pacific Ocean. Andes the world’s longest mountain range. This land of incredible and unusual contrasts
is also home to the numerous beaches, fjords, deep sea channels, glaciers The Ojos del Salado, is a part of the Andean
mountains, the tallest mountain in Chile as well as the highest active volcano in the
world. Atacama Desert – a virtually rainless plateau
made up of salt basins and lava flows Hm… such a variation of this country It has river, mountain, desert, snow, and also glaciers in the Southern part of Chile I just so wonder about the weather in Chile I know! There are four season in Chile which are Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter and the climate in Northern part is dry and warm but in Southern is moist and humid How did you know that much? Because I know how to use Guruguru Next to the Human Geography of Chile according to UN data in 2019 population is
estimated at around 18 million people at midyear. Chile population is equivalent to 0.25% of
the total world population. The Chileans are ethnically a mixture of Europeans
and Indians or Mestizo. Few Africans were brought to Chile as slaves
during colonial times because a tropical plantation economy, common in much of the New World,
did not develop. After independence and during the republican
era, English, Italian, and French merchants established themselves in the growing cities
of Chile and incidentally joined the political or economic elites of the country. National religion is Roman Catholic. And for the history in this country … Chile
had the history of different American Indian groups show in the territory from around the
year 14 800 BC until the arrival of the Spanish colonists European exploration of the continent began
in 1492. Fernando Magallanes and his expedition were
the first Europeans to arrive in Chile, traversing the narrow southern strait that today bears
his name in 1520. For the resources
Chile is rich in mineral deposits, natural forests, sea resources, and energy sources. Chile is the world’s largest producer and
exporter of copper. Copper mines are located in northern Chile
and along the Andes of north-central Chile. Fishing resources – Since 1974, after the
collapse of the Peruvian fishing industry, Chile has become the chief fishery of South
America, and it is one of the foremost fishing countries of the world. Sardines, jack mackerel, chub mackerel, hake,
and anchovy constitute most of the catch. The principal products are fish meal and fish
oil, which are shipped to Europe and the United States for the production of animal feed and
industrial oil. For the agriculture in Chile,
Chile increased remarkably the export of fresh fruit, canned vegetables, and wines In temperate central Chile the primary crops
are cereals, followed by grapes, potatoes, corn (maize), apples, beans, rice, and a variety
of vegetables. Industrial crops, such as sugar beets and
sunflower seeds for cooking oil, are also common Wow, so Chilean they speak Spanish Hola, ¿Cómo estás? Muy bien! Last, to the Tourism Aspect This statistic shows the arrivals by region,
in which Americans rank the first for arrivals with around 5 million people and in this year
Argentina travels to Chile around 2.5 million people Impacts of tourism in the country – The Economic
Impact of Travel and Tourism In 2017, travel and tourism constituted 10.4% of the country’s
GDP and is forecasted to rise by 4.2% in 2018. The contribution of the Travel and Tourism
Sector to employment is significant, as over, 10% of all jobs are directly or indirectly
connected to the sector, amounting to around 835,500 jobs in total. Current issues – Chile’s main environmental
problems are deforestation and the resulting soil erosion, and the pollution of its air,
water, and land. Air pollution from industry and transportation
and water pollution are especially acute in urban centers, where the population has doubled
in the last 30 years. For attractions in Chile, we bring you 3 places
that you can’t miss. – Easter Island & Rapa Nui National Park
First visited by Europeans in 1722, the magnificent yet remote Easter Island-so named by a Dutch
Explorer who first set eyes on it on Easter Sunday- has been inhabited for thousands of
years by Polynesians. Despite being more than 3,500 kilometers away
from mainland Chile, this fascinating island with its remarkable stone sculptures remains
the country’s most recognizable attraction. – Santiago: Chile’s Cultural Capital
Centrally located and the country’s main transportation hub, Santiago is where most visitors begin
their Chilean travels before heading to the Andes or other areas of outstanding natural
beauty, such as Easter Island. The smartest travelers, though, will allow
time in their Chile travel itinerary to get to know Santiago – Valparaiso
Valparaíso is a port city on Chile’s coast. It’s known for its steep funiculars and colorful,
clifftop homes. La Sebastiana, the quirky former residence
of Chilean poet Pablo Neruda, is now a museum with far-reaching Pacific views. During the 19th century, an influx of European
immigrants left their mark on the city’s architecture and cultural institutions, many
of which congregate around downtown’s Plaza Sotomayor. Thank you, you guys for watching the video and don’t forget to like and share the video and leave the comment DOWN BELOW!
